DJ Satelite Releases Volume 8 of 'Luanda No Horizonte' Mix Series

Angola's DJ Satelite delivers another installment of his "Luanda No Horizonte" mixtape series with Volume 8.

Angolan producer DJ Satelite relinquishes another DJ set in his eighth serving of Luanda No Horizonte. His latest Luanda No Horizonte Volume 8 is a smoothly crafted, kuduro and house-tinged mix that gives us a taste of  the sounds coming out of Angola's capital city. DJ Satelite's set includes work from a batch of fellow Angolans including multiple features from afro-house producers Wilson Kentura and Money Tiuze. Other highlights come in the form of semba, reinterpreted with electronic rhythms to set a house tone, furthering DJ Satelite's borrowing and melting of genres into his global mixtapes. The prolific producer is currently on tour with Ten Cities, a project aimed at showcasing the pulsating and cross-continental urban club music scene. Stream Luanda No Horizonte Volume 8 below.

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.
