Nyege Nyege presents African High Tempo
The future is heard whenever DJ Travella steps into the booth. The nineteen-year-old producer, born Hamadi Hassani, has reinvented the high-speed Tanzanian dance music sound, singeli, by injecting into it chaotic cybernetic energy. His fiery attitude is unmatched, and his sound is jam-packed with inventiveness. Owing to support from the likes of experimental patron saint Arca, his frenetic 'Crazy Beat Music Umeme 2' has grown to become one of 2022's defining tracks for those online and beyond. More can be experienced in 'Mr Mixondo', his long-form, out on Nyege Nyege Tapes.
