The Busy Twist
Edna Martinez (Prende la Vela / Kréyol)
A tropical storm of electronic psychidelia directly from Lima, Perú. A project always in constant evolution, exploring rhythms and sounds of the world.
Dengue Dengue Dengue! is an audiovisual duo from Lima, Perú. Behind the masks are Felipe Salmon and Rafael Pereira, two producers, dj’s and graphic designers. Their work focuses in exploring native rhythms from Peru and other parts of the world, recreating them in an electronic form, mixing the old with the new, analog and digital, to create their own unique sound and visuals. Their musical explorations go from Psychedelic Cumbia to Dub, from Salsa to Footwork, from Tribal to Techno, the sound and visual palette keeps growing and adding more and more flavours to the mix.
Hailing from London, The Busy Twist is a collective focused on rejoining the dots between Afro, Latin and UK Bass music by developing a sound which not only melds the sonic genealogy of all three palettes but also presents such crossovers faithfully. Their debut EP ‘Friday Night’ with Soundway Records is preoccupied with the ever-decreasing gap between London and Ghanian music in an effort to capture the vibrancy and warmth shared by both cultures.
Beyond the banks of West Africa a resonance with Columbian roots is increasingly present in their music – a link they have developed over a series of trips to the country in recent years, and furthered by productions alongside locals Nidia Gongora and Chongo de Colombia. The group continue to commission remix work for Palenque Records, Systema Solar and Ghetto Kumbé, and with a slew of original releases scheduled for 2017 there is no doubt you will catch The Busy Twist raising temperatures on dance floors worldwide in the not so distant future.
