The next KOKOKO! EP is focusing on a more percussive and electronic style and will reflect the atmospheres of night time Kinshasa, when the city is getting dark, the streets crowded in an ambiance of blasting distorted sound
system powered by generators noises and smoke, necessary to bring lights and music here and there, fighting the blackouts of the busy capital.
Lead by Xavier Thomas aka Débruit and the self-titled « seigneur de l’ambiance » Makara Bianko, this special formula focuses on one of the many underground branches of the Kinshasa sound, inspired by infinite electronic
loops, distorted by an overpowered PA and serving as an hypnotically background for the growling voice of Makara. Built from scratch and defying musical categorisation, these new sounds are the beating heart of the shady
downtown clubs, celebrating to help forget as much as possible the harsh realities of everyday life in Kinshasa.
