The Norwegian DJ and producer Mikkas, better known as Djuma Soundsystem, has for more than two decades made a top of the line, mind-bending, genre-busting underground music. No one listening to House Music in the past 15 years
has been able to miss the modern classic "Les Djinns." Since then he has toured the world many times over, with a particular highlight being when he DJ'ed the last hour counting down to midnight on New Year's Eve 2009, to almost one million people gathered at Baha Beach in Rio De Janeiro. One would think Mikkas could take a moment to relax every now and again, but this is one restless soul that
refuses to slow down. Instead, he continues to travel the world to spread his gospel of meaningful, organic, afro- inspired club music to appreciating crowds. His latest tracks have been released on Crosstown Rebels, Chapter 24, SOSO, Kittball, Sol Selectas, and Get Physical.
In 2018 Djuma Soundsystem’s remix of Robosonic’s “Drowning” refused to leave Beatport’s top 20, and the recent Djuma Soundsystem & Westerby Remix of Tube & Berger’s “Fetzen” on ZEHN, made an equally grand impression with its deep afro-tinged grooves and uber-solid genre-crossing production, ultimately reaching the #1 spot on Beatport’s Afro chart. Nowhere will the current sound of Djuma Soundsystem be better documented than on the forthcoming “Full Body Workout”-compilation on Get Physical’s label, which is now complete. A long time in the
pipeline, and as a real labor of love, the mix is heavily influenced by the sounds of Africa, which has always played a big part of Djuma Soundystem’s DJ sets. The Djuma Soundsystem installment of Full Body Workout features brand-new tracks and collaborations as well as a multitude of brand new remixes of new and classic Djuma Soundsystem tracks, all selected personally by Mikkas himself.
