The Fade to Mind affiliate and one-half of Nguzunguzu joins the dots between new US rap, underground club beats and her original material.

As part of Nguzunguzu, Future Brown and the label-collective Fade to Mind, Los Angeles-based DJ and producer Asmara incorporates deconstructed club genres into her original productions, edits and mixes. There’s US house and techno sub-genres, UK bass, Latinx club rhythms and melodic rap and R&B — all of this music was tested out at early residencies at LA parties Mustache and Wildness, and brought to a wider audience with Nguzunguzu’s silky smooth Perfect Lullaby mixes. After years of collaborating with Kingdom, Total Freedom and her Nuguzunguzu partner Daniel Piñeda, she’s stepped out on her own. She’s got production credits with Kelela, and most recently dropped explosive joint mixtapes with GHE20G0TH1K’s Venus X and contributed to the 2018 Night Slugs Allstars X label compilation.
