Congolese-Canadian DJ Bonbon Kojak comes through with the first installment in a mixtape series from Moonshine, a Montréal-based “afrocentric collective” that, apparently, hosts secret parties on the “Saturday after every full moon.”
The collective is home to Pierre Kwenders, Bambii and Boycott, and has featured acts such as DJ Windows 98 (Arcade Fire’s Win Butler), Shabazz Palaces, and Uproot Andy.
In Espoir 2018, Bonbon Kojak leads us on a high-octane journey through the sounds heard at these underground Montréal soirées.
“Espoir 2018 is an uplifting selection of songs about hope and self worth, celebrating the new sonic breath of African dance culture from old to new,” Bonbon Kojak tells Okayafrica. “The year 2018 represents the utopia of the 2000s.... an opportunity to recreate the world. Motivate youth to continue working for a better future.”
