Sounds of Sisso
[Nyege Tapes] 

Bampa Pana & Makavelli (Sisso Studios) 
Moroto Hvy Ind (Nyege Nyege Tapes)

"Without doubt the most frenetic and exciting new music we've heard in 2017. Sounding like nothing else but in our minds comparable with full on Soca or Shangaan Electro styles as much as Northern British takes on happy hardcore and Makina, trust there’s no messing about with this one.
A totally uncompromising style that can’t help but make most other dance musics sound a bit pale and limp by comparison." -

"It’s impossible not to put this on and have a fucking great time" - FACT Magazine

"For the past 15 years, the Tanzanian megalopolis of Dar Es Salaam has been home to one of the most exciting underground electronic music scenes in East Africa, and Sisso Records stands out as the city’s most prolific and creative studio. 
Singeli, an up-tempo music genre combining defiant, satirical lyrics with frenetic productions whose raw, madcap energy borrows from Zanzibar’s Tarab music and South African Afro-house as well as noise, gabber, and happy hardcore. 
The MCs deliver frenzied chatter about the everyday challenges of teens and 20-somethings, from police corruption to dating while broke. Born in the sprawling working class Dar Es Salaam neighbourhoods of Tandale and Manzese, Singeli and other underground genres like Mchiriku, Sebene, and Segere have exploded into the mainstream and taken over Bongo Flava as the music of choice amongst Tanzania's youth. Whilst some Singeli artists have begun fusing their music with more traditional Tanzanian hip hop, the Sisso label has remained uncompromising and faithful to a ruff-edged, lightning-speed, punk/DIY Singeli aesthetic."


"Wispy goofball duo cranking out the gaudiest cartoon rock hysteria this side of an impending aneurysm, guitar/drums/electronics/dual vocals deployed in parallel asynchronicity to disrupt, disorient and induce a flaming wiggle the likes of which only the birds know."

"Atonal guitar skree and particle-acceleration electronics awash in a torrent of asynchronous percussive battery, fixed into cracked arrangements amidst twin maniac vocals. Absurd, hysterical and queer as a flamingo!"

"Harrga is a band formed in Bristol, 2017 by Miguel Prado (Nz?mbe) and Dali de Saint Paul (Domestic Sound Cupboard, Ep/64) in honor of those who burn the border & keep indelible marks, glossolalia and xenoglossia. Diaspora of the future."
