“Most club music has its roots in Africa.” (Afrologic, musician, Lagos)
Since 2014 Ten Cities has been digging for electronic music cooperations at eye-level between Africa and Europe. Ten Cities brought together 50 artists from ten African and European cities – among them Pinch and Rob Smith (Bristol), Batida (Lisbon), Sasha Perrera and Gebrüder Teichmann (Berlin) as well as Wura Samba and Afrologic (Lagos), DJ Satelite (Luanda) or Just A Band (Nairobi). Ten Cities released a triple vinyl compilation on Soundway Records UK filled with afroeuropean electronic bashment sound. A huge book about the history of nightlife in each of the ten cities will be published early next year. On 29th November we are going to show you the current state of Ten Cities at our jam at Yaam Berlin.

Perera Elsewhere is Berlin-based, UK-born experimental electronic music producer Sasha Perera.
