Dauwd’s five favourite African acid rhythms

My god, was it really four years ago Dauwd first popped into our lives with ‘What’s There‘ and ‘Ikopol‘? Since emerging in the postdubstep landscape of melancholy, garage-indebted productions, his work has matured with the years and, since a move to Berlin, has now become a mainstay on Kompakt, with a breed of deep yet melodic techno that feels right at home in his new surroundings.

More recently, Dauwd is looking further afield for inspiration, as this playlist attests to. Read a little from the man himself below, before jumping into a playlist that includes cuts from DJ Sotofett, Frankie Francis and Maalem Mahmoud Guinia.

“I chose these tracks because they sum up perfectly the music spectrum that inspires me at the moment – ‘african acid’ and afro sonorities with the right touch of electronic elements. A music more sensual than intellectual.

Catch Dauwd in at Corsica Studios, London tomorrow for Percolate, playing alongside Juju & Jordash (live) & Borrowed Identity. Check RA and FB for more info & tickets.
