Since 2010, with its radio show and events, Expatriarch has explored the terms “gender” and “genre” within Berlin’s music landscape, and now, the related concept of “generations”. Expatriarch Generations is a series in which established artists select, introduce and support newcomers to guide their careers in music.

Active in Berlin since the 90s, Tama Sumo is known to contemporary house music fans around the world, largely as resident DJ at Panorama Bar at Berghain. She explains of her pick, American expat Ari Robey-Lawrence a.k.a. The Neighbourhood Character: “I met her about two years ago through my wife Lerato and from the dancefloor of Panorama Bar. She comes with a lot of knowledge in music, openness and curiosity.” In 2014, Ari, Lakuti and Tama Sumo worked together on a remix for The Knife under the alias Tarantism. Earlier this year, Ari and Afrikan Sciences collaborated on a 12” EP, released on Uzuri Recordings.

“I first heard her DJ at a queer party at Raumerweiterungshalle in Berlin,” continues Tama Sumo. “I love how she dares to be different and edgy. In my opinion, she has a unique mixture of a funky, soulful, experimental and queer approach to music, and I see a huge talent in her.” Ari has been preparing lots more productions of her own, which she’s planning to unveil in her DJ set at SchwuZ in mid-October. Before that, Intro and Exberliner will be covering their mentorship interview to share some insight on the realities of being a DJ/producer.

This project is made possible with support from Musicboard Berlin GmbH.
