We already announced the new edition of Italian festival SPARKS which will happen again in 2020 from August 28th to 29th at Parco Grotte in Putignano. Now they revealed the full lineup. On August 28th, Angolan-born, Lisbon-based producer Rogério Brandão aka DJ Nigga Fox and Italian producer Alessio Natalizia aka Not Waving will get the ball rolling on the main stage. Daniele Sciolla, Colored Toys, Ghang Drums and Ciasky close the first day of the festival.
The day after, on the main stage, there will be the Dutch collective The Mauskovic Dance Band which combines elements of cumbia, Afro-Caribbean rhythms, & space disco in equal measure to create a unique hypnotic groove; Tunisian producer Deena Abdelwahed which released her first album Khonnar in 2018. Back in 2020, she released a new EP titled Dhakar which is out now via InFiné Music. According to the press release, Tunisian leftfield experimentalist Deena Abdelwahed returns with an EP that ‘s taking her message back to the dancefloor.
Straying away from personal identification, these tracks keep on focusing on sonic influences from her home region, be it in terms of rhythmic structure, sampling or other local sources. A highly versatile package for any forward-thinking DJ and further proof of this producer ‘s unique ability to fuse Arabic music references with club music. RuDan (Okee Ru and Dan Mela) and Don Pasta & Caramel Chamaleon will join the second stage on the same day.
