Under the Scotch Rolex moniker, the DJ makes his debut on the Nyege Nyege label with Tewari, featuring Druma’s Lord Spikeheart, MC Yallah, Swordman Kitala and Chrisman.
After his 8-track EP, released in 2020, the Japanese DJ Scotch Egg has launched his new project entitled “Tewari.” His list of collaborations includes Bong-Ra, Gooooose, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Kiki Hitomi, King Midas Sound, MC Sensational, Mike Paradinas, Ove-Naxx, Seefeel, and Slikback, the co-founder of Nyege Nyege‘s Hakuna Kulala festival. Based in Uganda, Hakuna Kulala features a variety of experimental dance and music in homage to East African cultures. Now, Scotch Rolex returns a year later with Tewari. This album combines breakcore, chiptune, dancehall, death metal, doom trap, fast electro, gabber, and also grindcore. Here, Scotch Egg becomes Scotch Rolex, in reference to a popular sandwich in Uganda. In the video for “Success,” Lord Spikeheart performs in an idyllic and soothing landscape, which contrasts with the fast-paced music of Scotch Rolex.
Pre-order Tewari ahead of its April 30 release via Hakuna Kulala.
