SHOOT OUT on Impakt Festival

NON WESTERN DJ-BATTLE: DJ, artist and curator Jonas Ohlsson (DJ Lonely), Sierra Leona-US dj and writer Chief Boima and historian, activist and organiser Friso Wiersum (dubcovsky) might have a different musical focus in their work, but are all underground music fanatics with a passion for travel. They challenged each other during a musical dialogue with context, statements and music from a non-European perspective. As DJs with a mission they battled it out about movements and club scenes in the non-Western world, the renewed ambitions of ‘local’ trends influenced by technology, cultural exchange between hemispheres and the effects of political and economic shifts as these can be heard on the rhythms and tempos of dub, shangaan electro, macumba and baile funk.
