DJ NaNa believes that the art of Turntablism is a science. The same precision and dedication scientists put into research and experiments, is what NaNa is known for putting into his own artform. His influences range from the common (Wu Tang Clan, Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay-Z). to the not so obvious (Zamfir, Portishead, Lamb, Fleetwood Mac), and everything else in between. A true music connoisseur, his knowledge of diverse genres of music is almost as impressive as his knack for combining them.

Artists featured have included painters, photographers, sneaker designers and chefs.
For their next installation, we’re bringing that energy to the Drake Hotel! This time the focus is on the DJs and their unique blend of urban African sounds called Afrobeats. Not to be confused with Fela Kuti’s Afrobeat (without the s), Afrobeats is catch all term originating in the UK that refers to different electronic dance music genres from the African continent and African crews in London, Lisbon and Paris. From Ghanaian Azonto to Angolan Kuduro to South African House. DJs Deemaks, Camron and Revy B will submerge the Sky Yard patio with open format sets that will also include hip-hop, reggae and pop. Room 222 will host a mini pop-up shop selling a small collection of African-inspired fashion and artwork from the SUPAFRIK online shop.
