Mark Ernestus imported techno to Germany, injected it with dub, and then pushed his way back to the roots of the latter. As owner of the record store Hardwax and creator of the projects Basic Channel, Maurizio, and Rhythm & Sound together with Moritz von Oswald, few have been as influential as Ernestus in shaping the Berlin sound. Since 2013, he has been releasing records together with musicians from the Senegalese collective Jeri-Jeri Musik, which specialises in the West African Mbalax sound. Out of this grew the much larger and much more powerful Ndagga Rhythm Force, which put out the album »Yermande« in 2016 and has been shaking the foundations of stages around the world with their Sabar drums ever since. Expect polyrhythmic, psychedelic grooves as lush as the bass lines are energetic, and over it all Mbene Diatta Seck’s reverby vocals. Mark Ernestus' Ndagga Rhythm Force brings dub and techno back to their roots—and lets the world listen.
