More about this show
  • AFRO
  • FUNK

Tune in each month to Liverpool’s Dharma Collective for a selection of afro-fusion, funk and disco…

Kole and James started DJing together back in 2015 and have since gone on to set up their ‘Electric Boogie’ party. Guest DJs and residents play a broad selection of records throughout the night, cruising through disco, afro beat, jazz, funk, house and hip hop.

Known to play extensive sets, the DJs like to show off their eclectic tastes, whether it’s an 8 hour marathon at Liverpool’s Magnet or on the Adriatic Coast for their Warm Up Sessions. Dharma Collective’s radio show will embody everything you might hear at one of these parties, with James Sims and Kole Akeju running through killer music, new and old.
