This unique Nigerian/London born DJ/producer and Reclaim Your City resident (at ://aboutblank Berlin) delivers a techno mix full of strength, depth, history and sonic progression. Building on from Monolake’s ‘Error’ he takes us through cavernous tunnels and dirt-encrusted sweat boxes as Sinfol, Cassegrain and Tin Man, Robert Hood, Dax J, Oscar Mulero, Roman Poncet, Heiko Laux, Hodge and Shlømo weave their way into this beautifully crafted mix. Make no mistake, there’s a new Sonic Destroyer in town!
Abayomi’s sound is influenced by deep, raw Detroit techno, dirty Chicago house music and edgy UK bass. His driving, hypnotic productions and DJ sets prove him a forward-thinking figure of the techno scene. Four solid EPs under his belt include the first sold-out release on his own imprint and RYC BerlinParis 2.0 which features Abayomi’s “Rebirth” alongside tracks from solid techno acts Anetha, I/Y & François X.
Abayomi’s vinyl label, like his DJ sets, unites elements of deep, raw Detroit techno and dirty Chicago house with strong London attitude. The same-named imprint was launched in 2015 as a vehicle for his first issue under the Abayomi moniker, ‘You Sleep, They Live!’ EP, which sold out with local support from OYE Records and received club and podcast play from the likes of Veronica Vasicka, Ellen Allien and Ben Sims. He most recently appeared on Moderat’s BBC1 Essential Mix and he stormed Berghain last week with his debut gig at the club alongside Blind Observatory and James Ruskin. Here’s a taste of the Abayomi club experience!
