Afrobeat day fest in the meatpacking district – Outdoor Festival at Kraken

View Calendar

Some time ago, there was an “Afrobeat day fest” at a local club in town, but unfortunately the event did not seem to contain so much “afro” or “beats” for that part. Now they have gathered some of the city’s best DJs playing Afrobeat – and a white DJ playing mixed party music.

So for those who want to hear the best new dance music from the Continent and eat really good Afro-Caribbean food and dance an entiere afternoon, you are warmly welcomed to Kraken on Sunday, July 16th, where Sister Justice, DJ Junior, Mike Yangstar and Hasan Ramic stand for the music.

    Ever since his debut album "Endtroducing" turned up and down on both the contemporary dance and hip hop scene, DJ Shadow has been one of the most respected and celebrated djs. By combining brilliant technology with high-level sampling perfection and high-level music performance, DJ Shadow, or Josh Davis, as he's really called, was defining how the other half of the 90's sounded.

    Last year, "Endtroducing", which has been doubted as the 90's best album and one of the most important 50 years of the last 20 years, has been celebrated. Then DJ Shadow was also on the verge of releasing his fifth full-length "The Mountain Will Fall", where he collaborated with, among others, Run The Jewels.

    "The Mountain Will Fall" went all the way up to the American dance list, and with that in the back, master DJ Shadow now comes to Stockholm and Kägelbanan.
