Description

The Berlin-based electronic duo OY creates a musical mosaic of half the Globe's sounds.

The global aspect of their recent debut album No Problem Saloon stretches beyond Berlin's notorious techno clubs or the currywürsts. The record's back bone is made up of a series of field recordings that the Swiss-Ghanian singer Joy Frempong made during her many trips through the African nations of Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana and South Africa.

When she eventually returned to her base in Berlin, she reunited with drummer Lleluja-Ha to transform the recordings of fireworks, ramshackled cab doors and rattling street vendors into life-affirming tones. The musical globetrotter-quilt that defines OY has since been weaved together with playful melodies, synthesizers and percussion, which makes it hard to not fall head over heels with No Problem Saloon's rythmical electronica.

At the moment, the Norwegian-Nigerian Monica Ifejilika is in the studio with producer André Viervoll and is whittling out her solo debut. Monica Ifejilika has spent the last 15 years being an integral part of the collective Queendom. There she - along with Hannah Kvam, Haddy N'jie and Asta Lydersen, to name a few - created numerous humor shows, and most recently in 2012 released Queendom album Still Rising.
