Music from Africa


we hope you all had a good start into 2019.

Dogu has spent a couple of months in East Africa by the end of 2018 to do some research and recording sessions for our upcoming ZIK ZAK album. The album will be out in August 2019 and strictly features collaborations with african singers, rappers and musicians. Yes, the focus for this album is on Africa. That continent always has been a huge influence for our music and it holds so much undiscovered talents that it was just about time to dedicate a whole album to the black continent. More news about that album soon!

Dogu, who is Switchstance Recordings founder Tom Strauch, does a bi-monthly live Afrobeat and Reggae night in Cologne / Germany called Family Affairs Cologne and the next episode is this coming saturday, the 9th of February. Here is a little video teaser for the night which features some photos and impressions of the beauty of Mama Africa. The music in the video is by Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti:
