about

For the first output of an ongoing exchange between East Africa and East Asia via collectives Nyege Nyege/Hakuna Kulala (Kampala - Uganda) and SVBKVLT (Shanghai – China), we are excited to present ‘Slip A’ and ‘Slip B’, two Eps made during Slikback’s China tour/residency in April 2019.


After making first contact online in late 2018 and subsequently meeting up at CTM festival, Berlin, in January 2019, Nyege Nyege and SVBKVLT founded the beginning of a long term project exploring collaborations between East-Africa and East-Asia based artists.


For the first stage of the project, SVBKVLT invited Kenyan producer Slikback to China for a 3-week tour and residency in April 2019. During these 3 weeks, Slikback performed in 5 cities (Shenzhen, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Nanjing and Beijing), spending time in the studio with artists throughout the tour. The results of these studio sessions are now being presented in the form of two Eps, to be released simultaneously across the two labels Hakuna Kulala and SVBKVLT on September 6th, coinciding with Nyege Nyege Festival 2019, Jinja – Uganda, at which Slikback and 2 of the collaborators, Hyph11e and 33EMYBW, will perform.

‘Slip A’

The first EP, entitled ‘Slip A’ consists of 3 collaborations with SVBKVLT artists 33EMYBW, Osheyack and Yen Tech. Started in China and then finished remotely between Nairobi and Shanghai, the 3 tracks each find their place right in the middle of the artists styles, each track complimenting but twisting each others sound into something new. ‘Slip A’ will be released via Hakuna Kulala on September 6th 2019.
