There is a unifying force at the heart of Kampire Bahana’s work. For several years now, the Ugandan DJ and writer has been at the helm of the country’s dance music scene, inspiring crowds throughout East-Africa and, more recently, across Europe and beyond. In striving not only to create an electric atmosphere on the dancefloor but also to unite a vast community in the fight against oppression and marginalisation, Kampire has quickly become one of the most vital figures in the continent’s club cultural sphere.
A core member of Uganda’s Nyege Nyege collective – whose label we’re also suitably obsessed with - Kampire broke up an extensive European tour this summer to play at Nyege Nyege festival in the Ugandan town of Jinja. The annual event – more on which you can read below – is yet another testament to the unifying power of what Kampire and her peers do.
These are the top 30 UK club events in October 2017, so forget about nuclear war for a second... London sees Fabric pull together a monumental line-up for its birthday, be on the floor for Donato Dozzy and Peter Van Hoesen's back to back.
Trouble Vision also has an anniversary, Sprinkles bringing proper house stuff- and no doubt politics- with Willow incapable of doing wrong right now. Those aside, Sebastian Mullaert was the best thing at Freerotation this year; a continous build of achingly beautiful stomping techno, so fair play to Superstition for that booking.
