POLLINATE @ NHAC: OKZHARP // BANANA EMPIRE // MOROKA
May 3, 2012One Comment
Okzharp is Gervase Gordon of LV’s new project focussing on his South African House influences. Originally from Cape Town and settled in London he brings a unique twist on the genre, mixing it with UK funky, footwork and other styles. He was the essential cog in the hype surrounding LV’s ‘Boomslang’ release and continues to delve further, warping the genre into something new.
Banana Empire fly in from Barcelona bringing with them an insane amount of spanish heat for the dancefloor. BE are Neheun & Suckafish P Jones, forging their collaboration on their love for many bass-heavy tropical styles. Expect Moombahton, Kuduro, Tiki, Bubbling and many everything in between. Tune into their amazing brand new mix to mark their UK tour here – http://soundcloud.com/bananaempire/banana-empire-voodoo-rave
Residents Moroka & Rob Pollinate host the show, hold the fort and pour the shots. Always utter madness and quality new music focusing on future tropical sounds.
