Last year, Gabrielle Kwarteng made two standout appearances at Dekmantel – an unforgettable solo set and a b2b with festival head-honcho Casper Tielrooij. For our 10th birthday, we simply had to bring her back to the Amsterdam bos for another serving. A native of New York, but recently transplanted to Berlin, Kwarteng is a Panorama Bar regular who traverses global genres. The native New Yorkian pays homage to black US styles, including ‘80s house and ballroom, diaspora-traversing disco interpretations, infectious percussion and, as the lights get lower, an undeniable acid undercurrent.
