Post-colonial take over with Amaluna
Written by Tara on 14-11-17 20:48 (2819 views) (1 comment)
Amaluna is the collaborative project of New Zealand-born FlibbertiGibbet and Zimbabwean Mudstompin Munkee. A multi-genre duo with an interest in the experimental evolution of music, they break the boundaries with eclectic and often unreleased tracks to drive the dancefloor to new levels. The diversity of their combined tastes unite psychedelic bass lines and glitchy melodies. Thanks to their passion for seeking out and sharing new sounds, they transmit a powerful energy from the decks to the dancefloor.

Recently signed to Free-Spirit Records, Astral Circus resident FlibbertiGibbet has been DJing since 2013. Meanwhile, her co-pilot Mudstompin Munkee is the host of her own regular radio show on Bassport FM and has played at global gatherings that include Portugal’s Freedom Festival and the UK’s Noisily Festival. Shattered Barriers promoter Abhi Trance first booked them to play back-to-back at his event in April 2017 and they enjoyed it so much that they did it again in September for Tribal Village. This confirmed they were onto something good and so Amaluna will be launched at Astral Circus on Friday 24th November at Electrowerkz in London, alongside an epic line-up hand-picked to help celebrate the birthdays of Astral Circus promoters Nikki S and FlibbertiGibbet, as well as the launch of Journey aka Jay OM’s new album, Limitless.

So with their project gaining momentum faster than they could have imagined, we thought it would be fun to set up the disco divas for this back-to-back interview. Here’s what they had to say…
