Faizal Mostrixx

Bio

Faizal Mostrixx is undoubtedly one of the most original talents to emerge from the new East African arts scene. He is now a regular feature on the Ugandan music festivals, headlining at esteemed festivals such as Bayimba and Nyege Nyege.

Faizal is a professional and extremely versatile dancer, embracing breakdance, body-popping, traditional African and experimental contemporary forms.
Unlike many of other contemporary African electronic producers, Faizal draws more from his native Ugandan music tradition, than from international influences. Faizal does not simply transpose African sounds into a ‘house’ or ‘electro’ template; he makes a radically new form of African dance music.

The rhythms, chord sequences and patterns are combined with heavily-processed sounds of Ugandan singers and traditional instruments. It is unmistakably Ugandan, yet like no other Ugandan music ever made before. Faizal uses electronica as a way of channeling his cultural heritage, not the other way around.

In his own words: “I am a performing artist, versatile in dance, choreography, social work and music production. My music production interest is to give African traditional instruments and organic rhythms a poetic electronic instrumentalism and to tell stories to the world that have never been told before. The motivation behind my work is to preserve and develop African cultural heritage.”
