Bwana is set for a large 2015. His ‘Flute Dreams EP’ for Will Saul’s Aus Music imprint was hailed as a one of the best records of 2014, with near universal support in the press and among his peers. The title track was featured in both Sasha and Huxley’s respective Essential Mixes for BBC Radio 1, as well as in sets and mixes from names including Laurent Garnier, J. Phlip and Jacques Greene. Clearly it’s no fluke that the young Canadian has become the first North American to release on the esteemed label, already home to the music of names such as Midland, Dusky, Joy Orbison and many more. His second release for Aus, the euphoric ‘Tengo EP’, faired no differently and has found its way into the sets of John Digweed, Skream as well as a host of others. It will no doubt serve to soundtrack many a sunset during the coming summer on Ibiza and at festivals across the planet.
Recent remixes have also provided a larger window into his versatility. His storming late hours flip of Francesca Belmont’s ‘Are You’ on Tricky’s ‘False Idols’ label will no doubt become a staple of techno DJ’s in the coming year, while his forthcoming remix of Odesza has already gained praise from the almighty Pete Tong, being featured in his ‘essential selection’ on BBC Radio1.
As a DJ, he’s only added fuel to the fire. Sets heard at Fabric-London, Panorama Bar in Berlin and Piknic Electronik in Montreal have been lauded for both their diversity and fearlessness. With a bag of vinyl in tow, Bwana’s ability to mix a wide selection of genres has allowed himself to a carve a place where he can just as easily fit onto a bill with fellow Aus artists Midland and Will Saul as he can with house or techno staples like Jennifer Cardini and Scuba.
Now based in Berlin, the future looks bright for Bwana as he continues to further explore new sounds and ideas, while maintaining an unwavering commitment to quality.
