REEF, the party series run by Berlin-based DJ Darwin, is back this month featuring another dose of intriguing music off the usual 4/4 grid. Kampire (pronounced “Kampi-ray”) grew up in Zambia before moving to Kampala, Uganda, and becoming a DJ. The Nyege Nyege collaborator's sets are loaded with energy, blending Afro-house, Latin bass, St. Lucian soca, Congolese soukous, baile funk, kudoro, gqom and plenty of other styles. Her intricate polyrhythms should also appeal to Kode9, even if the founder of the iconic Hyperdub label is more concerned with topics such as the colonization of space and the disintegration of the United Kingdom on his latest album, Escapology. Joining them will be UK underground veterans A Made Up Sound and Peverelist. Also playing tonight are Laksa and re:ni, who lead the London club night RE:LAX and the monthly NTS radio show of the same name, as well as their label launching in April with an EP from Laksa. Expect techno, dubstep, electro and other tummy-tickling bass music from their sets.
