Umeme represents the crossover of energetic Afrobeat analog synthesizer sounds. Umeme means lightning / electricity in Swahili. The sound of this Dutch band is raw and live band playing with masks, designed by Denisa Kollarova and Ronja Anderson of the Rietveld Academy. On their debut album, which they will present tonight, they work with vocalists King Ayisoba (Ghana), Koko Lawson (Togo) and Minyeshu (Ethiopia). The album was mixed by Dub Creator (King Shiloh). ZEA ZEA is the solo project of Arnold de Boer (Amsterdam, NL). He plays guitar and samples used for its energetic music with urgent lyrics, rugged beats and grimy basslines. This music does not contain too much fat grams: no words are wasted in the streamlined slightly deranged sound of ZEA.
