about

Owing their foundations to traditional afrobeat (and named after a Fela Kuti song), the Brooklyn-based, female-fronted band, Underground System, has built an international reputation around a seamlessly executed stage show, astonishing wherever they go, and compelling crowds to move with unbridled verve.

Robbing American “afrobeat” of its derivative formalism, Underground System continues to reinvent their brand of global dance music, remaining a force determined to recreate, redefine, and reconstruct.

In September 2018 the band released their debut LP What Are You on Soul Clap Records, the much-loved New York City imprint known for their coupling of party-ready DJ culture and shapeshifting live acts. Departing from the extended forms formally associated with Underground System’s live performances and stylistic roots. Hints of afrobeat, no wave, world, electronic, contemporary classical, disco, house, and genre-defying elements combine tightly to reflect a self-aware, edgy, and cohesive statement not currently being made by any other band.

Following up on “What Are You,” Underground System returns to Soul Clap Records with a remix package of their standout single “Just A Place.” Full of heavy hitters and dancefloor bombs, leading off is Germany’s king of the remix, Gerd Janson, who gives us a powerful 80’s influenced main mix and a stripped back drum tool. Up next, UK legend Greg Wilson joins forces with his son Che for a funky bassline driven jam. No strangers to SCR, Soul Clap meets Midnight Magic once again for a trippy, late night take on the track. Then we head to Washington DC for an Afro House workout by the Sol Power All-Stars, before finally bringing it back to Brooklyn with Underground System mastermind Peter Matson giving the original new life for the club.


DJ Support: Jonny Rock, Fred Everything, Jacques Renault, Hot Chip, Radio Sonica Ibiza, Severino / Horse Meat Disco, Jason Kendig / Honey Soundsystem, Franck Roger, Hot Toddy, Marcel Vogel, Ashley Beedle, The Revenge, Soul Clap, Midnight Riot, Quentin Harris, Francois K, Pontchartrain
