Episode 2 of Freak Wave ventures into experimental, underground and leftfield music from Dominican Republic, Niger, South Africa, Norway, Japan, Ecuador and Greece.
We start episode 2 by diving into Kelman Duran’s remarkable distillation of experimental electronics with reggaeton, dancehall and other Caribbean styles. We head to the Sahel region in West Africa for some Saharan synth wave from Hama; there’s a double hit of experimental vocal electronics from Norway’s NaEE RoBErts and South African artist Angel Ho; and we hear two cuts from a new compilation from Japanese label Diskotopia. Plus music from Ecuador’s Mala Fama and Greek improvisational duo Aman!!!.
