DJ Katapila

When Awesome Tapes From Africa posted this DJ mix from Ghanaian DJ Katapila, I was hearing some some literally awesome things..pitched up 80s/90s old school house played with kuduro levels of energy laced with Katapila’s own MCing like a London pirate radio station.

Good job is he’s just released a record. Buyable right here
