Fresh out of Lost Village, We Out Here, Boiler Room and much more we bring Gabrielle Kwarteng for our first, very special club night of the Autumn season!
She brings her uplifting selection of 80s Chicago & ‘90s NY house, broken beats, tribal percussion grooves, West African disco, jazz, acid and a whole lot more nestled in her bag, ready to be played out at the right moment.
Based now in Berlin, Kwarteng was born in Brooklyn and raised in the Bronx to Ghanaian parents, Gabrielle grew up listening to‘60s Ghanaian highlife, ‘70s Nigerian Afrobeat and American disco, funk and jazz on cassette at home. Around the age of nine, she accidentally discovered the record feature on her boombox stereo, and began to create her own mixtapes on blank cassette tapes. The cassettes were eventually replaced with CDs, before she ventured into the world of vinyl, where she hasn’t looked back since. Gabrielle Kwarteng is on a steady, slow-burning rise upward, this is her debut in Newcastle, see here her first! She is supported by up & coming homegrown talent Jackyln.
