Body therapy, mental reformat, animal protection and life celebration.


Slikback D'Njau is a Kenyan DJ and producer from Nairobi. After joining the Nyege Nyege collective in Kampala in mid-2017, he began to develop a unique dark yet accessible sound, drawing from a sonic palette including footwork, trap, grime and a variety of contemporary underground African club styles. His Debut EP "Lasakaneku" was released in June 2018 by Hakuna Kulala, a Kampala based label exploring new voices from the region.

Sofay is an essential member of a new wave of Glasgow artists. An exceptional selector with a versatile approach - as comfortable creating hypnotic vibes using dubby minimalism and sublime oddities as she is fusing curious electro, techno and house in a deeply considered way. Sofay holds a residency at La Cheetah, and works in A&R for Numbers. She also hosts a regular radio show on NTS, together with Ribeka.

Curious Paul runs Possible Futures and invites his favorite artists and influences to OHM for the bi-monthly Aquarian Shift dance session. He believes that dancing and singing are some of the most potent forms of therapy. His biggest concern isn’t so much that human beings aren’t able to sort out a sustainable environment for themselves in a timely fashion, but more so that we are destroying the animal kingdom (or rather slavedom) completely obliviously.


It is found that because of uncontrollable human expansion, and due to our degradation and destruction of their natural habitats, half of the animals in the world have disappeared since 1970. It is also found that 500 animal species have become extinct over the past century, instead of the nine species that would have been expected at natural rates.

How do we stop aggravating inequality, poverty and annihilating the natural and animal world? We need to accept our many differences and build compassion. Get out of uniform consumption and engage in proximity. Celebrate diversity, equitability and form new habits and actions.

In 1500, few cities had more than 100,000 inhabitants and there were about 500 million humans in the entire world. Today there are 7 billion. Human population has increased fourteen-fold. With a primeval world that has almost disappeared and resources thinning scarce, compassion is of the essence, now more than ever before.
