DJ Zhao

DJ Zhao brings contemporary and classic dance music together from all five continents, with focus on Africa. While his DJ sets reach from culture centers to remote areas of the globe, and from now back through the ages, DJ Zhao’s remix and mashup work directly connects “East” and “West”, acoustic and electronic, traditional and hyper-modern. Equal parts ethno-musicologist and booty shaker, Zhao is an ambassador of boom not only talking about, but demonstrating through raw sound experience, the underlying unity of all earth cultures and peoples.

Those interested in hearing more might start with FUSION 2: Ancient Futurist Illbient Dub or Radio Ngoma 6: Afro-Futurism.

Absolutely excellent! I see that Ngoma Sound has shared an orbit with Konono No. 1, another incredible experience. If you ever have the opportunity to see them live, do so.

All 5 continents? Excuse me, what planet is this?

Nevermind. The music is awesome, regardless what planet it's from. Many thanks. My mind will melt around this quite nicely, when I'm getting my exercise.

I liked some of the mixes but deleted all of them because of the constant self-promo sample drops. I can't stand that shit. Stop telling me your name.
