Afriquoi

Afriquoi is rapidly becoming a globally respected name, fusing traditional African elements with electronic sounds drawing on house, garage, dancehall, soca, hiphop and disco.

Formed in 2011 out of London's cultural melting pot, Afriquoi is a UK afro supergroup, with every musician a band leader in their own right. With members ranging in age across 3 decades, originating from Africa, the Carribean and the UK, Afriquoi is true fusion music in the best sense of the word, bringing together a vast depth of musical knowledge, culture and life experience.

Although celebrated for the five piece live show, Afriquoi DJ sets have developed a powerful profile in their own right, allowing a deeper showcasing of the African and electronic roots of Afriquoi's sound and adaptable to a much wider range of settings than the full live show.

Here is a little preview of what to expect....

Daniel Haaksman (Man Recordings)

This man needs no introduction (but... we're gonna give em one anyway).

Making his 'Manchester debut', Daniel Haaksman has paved the way for Afro-Latin dance, fused with a variety of cultural sounds and influences. The Berlin based DJ, producer, journalist and head of Man Recordings has taken world dance music to new heights over the past decade.

Daniel's music profile is boundless. His career so far has provided top class production in baile funk, kuduro, house, trap, latin, afro beat or anything that makes you turn and twist! This will be his first show in Manchester and most recent in the UK since London 2010, so we're sure he has plenty of goodies to rock down house! Since this guy is rare to come by, we heavily suggest you don't miss out on this one!
