DJ Raph

Raph is an eccentric, wild, electronic musician, producer and DJ from Nairobi, Kenya. Listening to his music is a journey through soundscapes and rhythms. His work has been described as essential dance music. That is fundamentally not kitsch or clich├ęd. Raph's set for Sondeka Alt is titled UNEASY LISTENING - In it he aesthetically eschews conventional DJ mixing in favour of a personal "un-mixing" style inspired by dada art. He utilizes a deliberately limited digital music performance application, adds unusual signal sources such as live FM radio, YouTube and non-musical media from my laptop to create a (gloriously chaotic) performance of original released and unreleased music by him and friends.
