This week in the PAM Club, Russian avant-club artist Wulffluw XCIV sends a raging mix that pushes warm Afro-diasporic beats into the deep end of the apocalypse.
Wulffluw XCIV believes in music as a tool to communicate and bring people together, a language that makes a mockery of geographical boundaries and cultural differences. Experimenting with communities around the world, the Russian musician reflects sounds from elsewhere in the mirror of new technologies, offering a sound that is often brutal with abrasive textures. Following his residency at Nyege Nyege Studios in Kampala in 2019, Wulffluw XCIV became the first artist outside of Africa to sign to Hakuna Kulala. In the spirit of the sub-label, he delivered Ngoma Injection, a physical and cerebral album that plays with emotions, halfway between an outlet and a pessimistic vision of the future. In this contemporary vision of dance music also shared by the following EP Hyperemia, the sound crusher mixes industrial techno, drum’n bass and breakcore with dembow, gqom, dancehall or kuduro beats. An exercise that he repeats in this PAM Club, expressing his rage in a context where his country calls on its soldiers in a war that is not theirs.
“This collection of sounds has become very special to me since I started recording it. I tried to find contemporary percussion-inspired music from around the world, and I mixed all the wild tracks I was lucky enough to find. This mix reflects my sonic vision and embodies my take on contemporary dance music. I tried to mix primitive and natural sounds with our modern broken down and digitally disordered reality to expose what the real human is today. Another attempt to build my own world while the real one is being destroyed around me.“
