Global DJs

DJ Edward Adoo talks his fellow DJs about what people are dancing to in their part of the world and why.

We go clubbing with DJ Edward Adoo manning the decks. He talks to some of the most cutting edge and influential of his fellow DJs about what people are dancing to in their part of the world and why, and shares those tracks with you.

Countries on the list include Venezuela and South Korea - how easy or necessary is it to keep on dancing when your society is in crisis, or when Kim Jong Un is making threatening moves just across the border? Victor Porfidio talks to us from Caracas, but hasn't been able to play there for six months, and
DJ Bowlcut in Seoul says Life Goes On, which is the title of his new track...

Also in the programme: DJ Yasmine from Nazareth, who is introducing Arab Israeli clubbers to sounds from around the world, including Germany, Chile, Angola and Armenia; the Fake Shamans, a duo from Pakistan who fell in love with house while studying in London; Keyzuz who is challenging Ghana's highlife and Afrobeats fans with electrifying electro sets; Marko Freidl from Croatia, which has, arguably, taken over from Ibiza as the clubbing capital of Europe, and finally, Lolja Nordic who is determined to stand with Russia's beleaguered LGBTQ community and host parties celebrating diversity.
