Back in May we joined Kiss My Teeth residents Can You Felix and Dizzietron at The Roundhouse in Camden for their first London event as part of Roundhouse Rising. We performed alongside AJ Holmes & The Hackney Empire and Fuse ODG – we even did the Azonto behind the decks as Fuse’s backing dancers/djs. The night was a lot of fun with great performances from all of the acts and a booty shaking contest with more booty than we bargained for!
Every week the excellent So Shifty guys will bring you a performance that they deem #unf*ckwithable. You can give them suggestions on twitter just using that hashtag but ultimately they will decide. This week’s edition is from Ghana’s 4 x 4. This is pretty timely as last night we got to be Fuse ODG’s dj’s.
We have been playing this tune at our events since we heard it a little while back, and are happy to see that Fuse ODG has finally dropped the video with a special verse from Donaeo and cameo from comedian Eddie Kadi. Its nice to see that Tiffany also features in the video, showing you her moves on the ‘Azonto Cam’ – what better way to learn the Ghanaian dance.
Catch us alongside Fuse ODG at Roundhouse Rising presents Kiss My Teeth this Thursday.
We are honoured and extremely excited to be on the line up of the first event in the Roundhouse Rising presents series, Roundhouse Rising presents Kiss My Teeth. Following from the success of the sold out Roundhouse Rising festival earlier this year, the Roundhouse are giving young up and coming promoters and artists the opportunity to showcase different sounds through their monthly events.
The first one is curated by DJ and producer Dizzietron, who is also one of the founders of Manchester club night Kiss My Teeth which we had a blast djing at last November. Afro pop group Aj Holmes & The Hackney Empire, Kiss My Teeth founders Can You Felix and Dizzietron, and the man of the moment when it comes to Azonto Fuse ODG will be performing on the night with co founder of Manchester night BPM T Dot on hosting duties. As you can see Dizzietron has put together a serious line up for the event, here are a few words from her on what you can expect on the night.
From the favelas to the shanty towns, Lagos to London, Kingston to Calabar and Bogota to Baltimore are a selection of bands, musicians and DJs bringing you the best dance rhythms influenced by the African diaspora.
Every week the excellent So Shifty guys will bring you a performance that they deem #unf*ckwithable. You can give them suggestions on twitter just using that hashtag but ultimately they will decide. This week’s edition is a Naija vs Ghana collaboration R2Bees feat Wande Coal called Kiss Your Hand.
Speaking of Ghana So Shifty just dropped their Azonto mix named Watch Me Do My Azonto. You can also check out Fuse ODG doing the dance right here.
