Nihiloxica – /ˈnʌɪ(h)ɪlɒksɪkə/

(pronounced: Nii-lox-ee-ca)

Nihiloxica is a live project that harnesses the full force of the ancient Bugandan drumming tradition of Uganda and focusses it on the contemporary dancefloor through a dark, brooding lens of techno sensibility. Incubated by Nyege Tapes and serving as one of the label’s most successful collaborations to date, Nihiloxica demonstrates a continuous, evolving conversation between two cultures; a dialogue that is drawing attention from across the globe.
