Bristol, United Kingdom
Afro-tropical DJs from Bristol
Area Boys are Ullrich Bartsch (Uliba) and Obaro Evuarherhe (Dr O): purveyors of international beats from anywhere between
Düsseldorf and Lagos.
Together they discovered their love for the sparkliest African melodies and seductive rhythms ranging from Fela Kuti’s afrobeat to Ghanaian high life and East African soukous, to more modern Kuduro from Angola, Kwaito house from South Africa, Azonto from West Africa and Global electronica. In between you will find south American sprinkles such as Cumbia, and Baile funk.
With these ingredients the Area Boys create mesmerising high energy sets that take the audience to a cosmopolitan tribalist dance
