The Mauskovic Dance Band Announce ‘Shadance Hall’ EP + North American Tour Dates Including SXSW

The Mauskovic Dance Band are coming to North America in what promises to be one of the most exciting and joyful tours this spring. Their live shows infuse no-wave dance punk, and Afro-Caribbean rhythms in what has been described as a “controlled explosion” of sound and emotions. If you need to dance, this is your night out. They are also announcing Shadance Hall EP, out February 29th on Dekmantel Records and sharing the first track off the album “2 Squeeze Dogs,” listen HERE.

Since the release of their Down In The Basement EP on Soundway Records in early 2018, the band have found themselves on a hectic touring schedule including Glastonbury Festival and The Great Escape.

Entirely self-produced, the band has reiterated their favourite elements of the 70s and 80s legacy of the Afro-Latin psychedelic music of Colombia and Peru, interpreting it through the context of modern day Amsterdam. The output is a lo-fi No Wave groove all its own – rooted in a deep love of champeta, Palenque, psychedelic cumbia, chichi, classic afrobeat and picó soundsystem culture.
