Abantu: Charisse C, DJ LeSoul, Josephine Gyasi & M.Patrick

23.00 — 05.00
Charisse C
DJ LeSoul
Josephine Gyasi

Abantu returns to Village Underground! The feedback from August 2023's event with Dlala Thukzin has been overwhelmingly beautiful, we promised we'd be back! This time, our special guest from South Africa is DJ LeSoul, a formidable talent who I've admired for many years. Spanning across Afro-Tech, Afro-House and Gqom; LeSoul is a true creative behind the decks, with such technical prowess. I've found myself on a dancefloor, in awe and unable to stand still at many of her sets, I can't wait for you to experience her!

You've all come to know and love Abantu for its intentional curation! I met Josephine Gyasi in Bristol; her sets are bouncy, fun and rhythmic. She plays a full spectrum of dance music, with strong influences from UK Bass Culture, the African continent and a selection of remixes to classic songs that we all know and love. I'm so excited to have her bring something fresh and unique to the Abantu dancefloor.

M.Patrick aka Mthulisi Patrick, is a veteran with a hefty track record as DJ/Producer, A&R, Artist Manager and Founder of the AmaGroovies Record Label. Both his library and his catalogue are extensive! The OG House music lovers, the Deep House lovers, the Private School lovers, this ones for you!

As for me? You know it's always an experience you just have to come and feel for yourself. This year, I'm launching Abantu as a label and debuting myself as a singer/songwriter. I've spent the last six months working on new music, and I can't wait to play it for you. Let's celebrate!

Our hosts! Captain Lulaz and Rose Bere. Captain Lulaz is a force to be reckoned with; she lights up every party with such care, skill and intention. You'll soon find out that we've only seen a small percentage of her gifts (wink wink)! Rose, the people's person! The leader, the nurturer, the community builder, the voice! The chemistry between these two!!

See you on the 16th! x"
