Madcap Clubnight: Kamandi, Jaga, & friends

For our May Clubnight, we've recruited Kamandi & Jaga from the deep south to showcase their new and unreleased material, with a sprinkling of the old. The Fostercare duo will be supported on the night by Jamal (SWIDT), Lenium & Grape Mami (debut set).

Free entry with an RSVP before midnight / otherwise $5 before 12am and $10 after. 

Kamandi
Kamandi is one of the leading lights of New Zealand’s contemporary electronic music scene. A music producer and live performer, Kamandi’s forward-leaning sound draws measured influence from both the LA beats scene and the deeper, meditative side of the UK dance music continuum. Backed by blogs like Mass Appeal, Complex, Vice, Earmilk and much more, he is a certified music man that should not be slept on.

Jaga
Jaga rarely emerges from the shadows of the New Zealand experimental electronic music scene to deliver powerful emotive music like none other. With his driving single Ghost Peppers appearing on influential blogs worldwide and an alleged forthcoming EP he is a producer, performer, and vocalist not to be missed… if you get the chance to catch him.

Responsible for seminal releases from Henry Wu, Fatima, Funkineven, Steve Spacek, Dego & Kaidi, Shafiq Husayn, Anderson Paak and many more.
