Stream Kashaka's 'AFROFUTURE MIX'

NYC-based producer Kashaka shares new 'AFROFUTURE MIX' featuring E.L. Big Fkn Gun, and his original productions.

New York-based producer and DJ Kashaka presents us with his hypnotic new AFROFUTURE MIX. According to the budding beatsmith, the moniker Kashaka was inspired by a hand-held shaker given to him during his stay in Accra, Ghana where he was studying West African drumming. The hour-long mix features music that the producer discovered during his travels through Ghana, like E.L.'s "Obuu Mo" and Joey B's 'Tonga," as well as newer tunes like BIG FKN GUN's "As'Jiki." Kashaka's mix opens and closes with two of his own original productions, the Sekou Batourou Kouyaté-sampling "Mamayoo" and the futuristic rap banger-meets-kuduro "Andruwoid."

Dying Lagoons Reveal Mexico’s Environmental Racism

In the heart of a traditionally Black and Indigenous use area in Southwest Mexico, decades of environmental destruction now threatens the existence of these communities.

On an early morning in September 2017, in a little fishing village in the Pacific coast of Oaxaca, called Zapotalito, thousands of dead fish floated on the surface of the Chacahua-Pastoría lagoons. A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
