Electronic music meets Afrobeat. Born in Chad but now based in Montreal, Afrotronix creates what he calls “an electronic futurist package” by drawing on and sampling from (for example) Mandinka music of West Africa, Saharan Tuareg blues, Senegalese rumba, Chadian sai, dubstep, EDM, and reggae. And he takes his futuristic aesthetic seriously: expect his signature all-white clothing and a helmet that’s somewhere between “a highly-stylized combination of Alien and Sonic The Hedgehog.” Take club beats, pair them with Central African rhythms, and you get the sound of Afrotronix” (OkayAfrica).
