DJ Duke

(Nyege Nyege Tapes) 

Duke embodies the Tanzanian strain of dance music called singeli, known for its extreme speeds reaching up to 180 BPM. His creative music blends together singeli, South African house, Zanzibarian tanaab and even gabber for a rowdy, in-your-face sound that takes samples from field recordings and Tanzanian advertising jingles. His sound is best shown off on his renowned album Uingizaji Huwa, released last year, which remains one of the most challenging and exhilarating records on Nyege Nyege Tapes.
