EVENT：Antidote x Popasuda present MINA
DATE：Friday, 22 March 2019
DJ’s:Mina, Skinny Brown
Mina got her start as a DJ in Leeds before moving to London, where she now lives and hosts a show, Boko! Boko!, on Radar Radio. After a co-production with Lorenzo BITW, both her solo debut and this follow-up, Sentah, have been released through Buraka Som Sistema's Lisbon-based label, Enchufada — a good indication of where her musical interests lie. Mina recently headlined the Boiler Room stage at Uganda's Nyege Nyege Festival.
Skinny Brown is the DJ and promoter who started the Popasuda dance parties at Dada Shanghai back in 2011. Popasuda means "booty" in Portuguese, one of many languages you'll hear at the night. You won't hear any English lyrics though. Skinny Brown strictly plays "global bass" jams coming from cheap computers in the Caribbean, Sub-Saharan Africa, Indian, and beyond. He has the cred to do a night like this too – dude's background is more mixed than the tunes, he speaks seven languages and has lived everywhere from Canada and Pakistan to Jamaica and Japan.
