After searching the universe for that next level sound, we have been pleasantly surprised and blessed by discovering this amazing artist from our own backyard! Djemba Djemba brings our planet huge bass and an has proved himself as the MAN who will guide our next gen of music lovers to what the greatness of bass music really can be. A fusion of DnB, UK Garage, NYC House, Trap and Dub mashed with finely tuned, chopped up vocals that have been twisted and transitioned in to his tunes with grace. Following the footsteps of LOL Boys, Star Slinger, Bwanna, Four Tet, and Para-One I definitely see this producer making some HUGE moves. Every tune he does is pure GOLD! Insta-Classics! TRUST!

The first tune of his that grabbed us is his release on Mad Decent! Check this one out!

Press Release:

Djemba Djemba is music born from a state of permanent contradiction, held together by one underlying and adaptive principle: rhythm. Experimenting with polyrhythms, 90’s FM synths, and the all-important 808 Kick, Djemba Djemba crafts a sound that is both intelligent as it is brain numbing.
It’s easy to detect the influence of UK Bass music currently dominating clubs, yet at the same time feel altogether new, and in stride with the response taking place in New York, Chicago, Boston, and his home in Los Angeles.
With releases on Mad Decent, his own imprint Rabbit Records, and Beat Team Supreme, Djemba’s music has been supported by the likes of Diplo, The Gaslamp Killer, Rusko, Baauer, Obey City, Major Lazer, Paul Devro, and BBC Radio 1. With exciting collaborations in the works with some of the biggest names in EDM, and his finger on the pulse of the latest dance music via his co-club night The Melt, Djemba Djemba certainly has a few surprises on the horizon.

His remix of “Oh Sheila” straight up floored me! With the down tuned vocals teamed up with Djemba Djemba’s beats, it makes this tune that next level shit you have all been waiting for! With tunes like this you can’t deny that this is THE NEXT LEVEL!

Now if your still not convinced check out this Fiona Apple REMIX! I’m not even a Fiona Apple fan and Djemba Djemba somehow got me reeled in with his remix! This is one artist that rep’s L.A. to the fullest and def one to keep an eye on! We fully support him and give him our seal of approval! Now add Djemba Djamba on Facebook and be sure to support! See you at the show!

Now if you feel like you need even more, don’t worry, we at TILTmag have you covered. Check out the latest mixtape from Djemba Djemba and download it for your morning commute. You will def get a solid dose!
