PAM Club: Cardozo's hot mix

A mainstay of Limbololo soundsystem, Cardozo also shines as a solo artist when it comes to getting the best out of an audience. A prolific producer on the rise, he enters the PAM Club as a DJ to take us on an electronic tour of Africa for a literally explosive session.

With one foot in Africa and the other in France, Marin (aka Cardozo) has been operating in Abidjan since 2020. There he shines as a producer on the Ivory Coast rap scene alongside local rappers such as Chinois l’Apocalypse, Oyoki Onanayo, Ken Gohan and Stelair, with whom he just  made the latest banger for the Blanc Manioc label. With beats geared for dancefloors, his music skirts between Afro-trap, kuduro and baile funk. Now Cardozo expands his scope to the Burkinabe and Nigerian hip hop scenes, also contributing to the huge “Momo,” by Aunty Razor. This sound engineer and arranger combines his twin senses for technique and party at the service of Blanc Manioc, the inescapable Portuguese house XXIII, and with Limbololo Soundsystem, the crew in which he works the turntables and regularly releases remixes. Despite a young career, the artist has already featured at coveted events and festivals, alongside the Maraboutage crew from Marseille, the Nyege Nyege team in Uganda and Africa Bass Culture in Ouagadougou. Cardozo is about to release an EPon which we’ll find uptempo interpretations of tracks by Damso, Naza, Meryl and Laylow. Watch this space!

“Here is a summary of my current influences, the kind of blend of styles and continents that I love to do as a DJ. I took the opportunity to slip some of my latest productions in, such as a collaboration with the “Naija Thugress” Aunty Rayzor, from Lagos, featuring Asna from Abidjan, and the latest from Oyoki Onanayo and Stelair who hail the same capital in the Anoumabo neighborhood. Fasten your seatbelts!”
