GALLERY: SAUTI SYSTEMS FT. ONEFOUR
Words by Christopher Kevin Au
Sauti Systems already held one event in August - for which they handed us this neat exclusive mix - but last Wednesday saw them at it again, throwing an impromptu mid-week thumper at The Lansdowne Hotel. It’s not easy to host a party in Sydney, let alone on a weeknight, but the Sauti team proved once again that they’re some of the most dedicated selectors and vibe-curators we have in our own backyard.
Delivering their mix of hip-hop, R&B, Afrobeat and UK sounds, the upstairs dancefloor packed out early. The Sauti team had been promising a surprise guest, and didn’t disappoint when the notorious OneFour appeared to perform recent singles ‘Spot The Difference’ and ‘The Message’. With OneFour seemingly unable to perform in NSW due overreaching pressure from police, this is one night they managed to slip past and onstage.
