Album: Faizal Mostrixx – Kuhamahama EP

Three track EP from Faizal Mostrixx.

Faizal Mostrixx is a producer from Kampala, Uganda, who’s been making waves far beyond his homeland since the release of his debut album Tribal Match back in 2017.

Since then he’s dropped an ear-catching single and two EP’s as well as a killer remix of Lua Preta plus a foot stomping contribution to the Beating Heart series. His latest offering ‘Kuhamahama’ marks his first release of the year.

The multi-talented artist channels his creativity in several ways — whether that be as a breakdancer, choreographer or social worker. Not only that he is also part of a youth transformation and community outreach programme called Kuhamahama.

Starting back in 2017 by a group of young dancers in Kampala, they created Kuhamahama, which is a nomadic dance movement. The programme aims to help young people all across the country who are struggling with drugs and unemployment.

His new project is named after the programme, and on it, he samples and mixes the native sounds of the Maracha district a West Nile sub-region, in Northern Uganda. The three-track EP with its heavily processed percussions, exuberant samples and fizzing synth basslines once again offers a mouth watering gilmpse into Mostrixx’s fresh new sound.

Much like his earlier work, there’s a gentle playfulness in his music which you’ll hear on opener ‘Village Bass’ and ‘The Sun’. But he’s also happy to get a little darker with his sound as is evident on the closing title track.
