Greetings!! and welcome to the 2nd installment of the ‘Ignition Experience’. What you can expect is a ride through Afro-House ( Primarily from Southern Africa) . Prom percussive to Soulful, a bit of each is touched here and there. As is with modern dance music, most of it is DJ/Producer driven but there are several stand alone acts too. Featured artists/producers/Djs are some of the household names on the scene as well as fast risers representing South Africa, Mozambique, Angola, and more. As is the norm, the sub-genre has more artists than a single session can cover so this may be the first Afro House Session, but not the last. Will have tons more headed your way. Hope you enjoy
