To brighten up your isolation weekends, we’re bringing Africa Oyé direct to your homes, in partnership with Melodic Distraction Radio. Each week we’ll have an exclusive live mix for you, a slice of that trademark Oyé vibe that you can enjoy over and over again. Recorded at Africa Oyé 2019, each mix is part of a series of DJ sessions from the Trenchtown and Freetown stages, where the sounds of Afro-centric music are pumped out non-stop to keep the groove riding high in Sefton Park. All of the DJs who perform on the Trenchtown and Freetown stages keep the sounds of the African diaspora alive all year round, and they contribute massively to the festival’s addictive, insatiable vibe.
This second mix comes from local DJ duo, DHARMA COLLECTIVE, and DASH, and is filled to the brim with Afro-infused dance music. If you’re looking for some funk, soul and disco to power your sunny Saturday afternoon boogie, then allow Kole, James Sims and Dash to guide you through a funky 90 minutes. World grooves and Afro-inflected disco is all you need to recreate the Oyé party in your own home!
