Beating Heart Sound System

Venue: The Boogie Round.

Since launching in spring 2016, on the shores of Lake Malawi,
Beating Heart has released over 60 tracks splicing Afro flavours
with house, techno, soulful beats and bass music, remixed by the
likes of The Busy Twist, Auntie Flo, Nabihah Iqbal, Ibibio Sound
Machine, Muzi, Luke Vibert, Rudimental, Goldie, Clap! Clap! My Nu
Leng and the legendary Angelique Kidjo.

The unique Beating Heart sound stems from the label’s exclusive
access to sample and remix the world’s largest collection of
vintage African field recordings, housed at the International
Library of African Music (ILAM) in Grahamstown, South Africa,
unearthing ancestral sounds for the dancefloors of
today.

The Beating Heart label founders’ Chris Pedley and Olly Wood’s
hugely hyped DJ sets have also been smashing dance floors across
the globe, everywhere from Rocking The Daisies, South Africa to
Kilifi NYE, Kenya, from WOMAD and Glastonbury, to SXSW and Lake of
Stars, Malawi
