You Need This New ‘African Summer’ Mixtape In Your Life

DJ Underdog and DJ Native Sun come through with 'African Summer,' an hour-long excursion through the best beats of the summer '16.

DJ Underdog and DJ Native Sun come through with African Summer, an hour-long mixtape excursion through the best beats and dance floor heaters from their many summer ‘16 parties.

As you know, Underdog is a resident DJ at our Electrafrique parties and he regularly teams up with Native Sun to host our #OKAYAFRICADC nights—so this one’s a family affair.

The two DJs cycle through bangers from Flavour, Davido, Tiwa Savage, Shatta Wale and even throw in an afrobeat rework of Rihanna throughout their new African Summer mix.

Underdog mentions that this mix is “perfect for catching an Uber to your loved ones house and having watermelon juice with lime.”

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
