Makossiri makes club music that defies genre limitations. Rich in narration and soaked in a cinematic atmosphere, her sets are a blend of experimental music, hardcore techno, psy-trance, industrial noise, and african rhythms often mixed in with her own live vocals, outer worldly sounds, and elements of Afro-Futurism and Egyptian mythology. Makossiri started her musical and artistic journey at a very young age in the church choir in Kenya, then later developing a passion for poetry, acting, songwriting and acoustic guitar. In 2018, she decided to move from Kenya to Kampala and be part of its vibrant artistic scene. In Kampala, she started organizing fashion pop-ups and music events and later on got into deejaying and producing music. Her latest EP, Juicy Juicy with Hakuna Kulala (under Nyege Nyege Tapes) was released, 1st October 2021.

Guiding Light IV (AT)
Artjom Astrov, Kisling & Till Megerle. The project Guiding Light started as a series of videos released by the music label Serious Serious in 2021. The concert is a continuation of a practice that can be defined as deep “hanging out” that is neither predetermined nor random. The band plays with extremes and contradictions such as „realness“ and „artificiality“ as both visual and performative tools in order to continually question the essence of their work. To hang out deeply isn’t merely a genre of music but a form of labor that embodies inexplicable sounds, intimate or sometimes banal situations, and carefully assembled visuals. One could think of this concert as tracks that would form one song—a song that is shaped by the constellation of the voices of the three protagonists and the kind of exteriorization and meaning that they commonly convey.
