As part of the Nyege Nyege Tapes collective, DJ Kampire is one of the figureheads of the vibrant nightlife in the Ugandan capital Kampala. Her mission: to introducte the rest of the world to the rich palette of gendres that East Africa has to offer. She effortlessly mixes local styles such as Lingala and singeli with house, bass and dancehall. And that exciting combination is a worldwide hit – from Red Bull Music Festival (New York) and Sónar (Barcelona) to our own Lowlands, Down the Rabbit Hole and Lente Kabinet.
“Actually, her tracks have only one common denominator: it all sounds very ‘party ready’.” – NRC
