> Aïwa " Yi Yi" > Aïwa "El Nar"




Rennes, France is the anchor point for this live, eastern drum'n bass crew. Aïwa is a spirit in transit from Kingston to Cairo, carried by feverish instrumentals and resonant vocal styles. A mix of dub, ragga, and hip hop influences, Aïwa is set to release their latest collection upon a growing audience of listeners who share in their aversion to simplistic beat-culture. You will find movement in your mind and your feet.

Wikkid launches Aïwa's second full-length album "El Nar" this year, hot on the heels of their highly successful debut "Yi Yi". Also in the works is the "Aïwa Remixed" compilation featuring the 12" vinyl 2-step, drum'n bass, house and techno remixes by Nu Skool Players, Capital J, RCola, DJ Sarcastic, Rise Ashen, and more.

Listen to some of the remixes:
