Nneka, the German Nigerian soul singer/songwriter and actress, confirms summer tour dates in support of her forthcoming studio album ‘My Fairy Tales,’ out May 26 via Kartel Creative and Fontana North.

‘My Fairy Tales’ was recorded and produced in France, Denmark and Nigeria while Nneka was living in Paris. It was produced by Mounir Maarouf, the Danish Silver Bullit Team and The Slag. With this album, Nneka sought to tackle subjects related to the politics of her birthplace and her own personal voyage of discovery. “My Fairy Tales is a concept album, exploring the lives of Africans in the diaspora and the struggles they face,” she says. “How we cope hustling in ‘another man’s land,’ but also the aspects of endurance, perseverance and gratitude.”

Nozinja Set To Release Debut Album ‘Nonzinja Lodge’ On June 1, 2015

April 1st, 2015


Listen To Nozinja Via Spotify HERE

Shangaan electro innovator Nozinja presents his debut album ‘Nozinja Lodge‘ out on June 1, via Warp Records and Fontana North – it’s an invigorating blast of future-facing dance music from Limpopo, South Africa.

‘Nozinja Lodge’ sees the producer test the frantic upper limits of Shangaan Electro on white-knuckle, rave-channelling cuts like ‘Baby Do You Feel Me‘ and ‘Vatswelani,’ while enjoying the freedom to take his foot off the gas and bring a deeper, lilting touch to his trademark sound on ‘Vomaseve Hina‘ and closing track ‘Jaha‘. Featuring a community of Shangaan vocalists alongside Nozinja, the songs take in themes of love, faith and tribal customs – while endlessly chasing the visceral thrill of the dance.
