Bar Laika presents Satellite 14: Devoye and Neville Folkes, DJ set by Wah Gwan Twon

Devoye and Neville Folkes

Join us at Bar Laika for the fourteenth edition of Satellite, featuring a live performance by father and son Devoye and Neville Folkes, and a DJ-set by Wah Gwan Twon. 

Devoye Folkes is a New York-born and -raised DJ and producer. He is a resident DJ at Half Moon BK, and is the drummer of Dianna Lopez’s band. He has numerous self-released albums, many which consist of remixes and mash-ups of pop songs, such as his take on Solange’s popular song “You Can Get It (Solange Bootleg).” Being hyper conscious of the way in which music is manipulated and used by DJs, many of his solo releases are geared as DJ tools; you can hear them being played in clubs in NYC and beyond. Having grown up immersed in his father's productions, he has sampled and incorporated his vocals in many of his releases. 

Neville Folkes, also known as Raja Moore and Mr. Rajah, is a New York-based rapper and Reggae artist of Jamaican heritage. He started his career by making music with his brothers through live freestyling and DJing. After moving to New York in the early 90s, he signed two tracks on Weeded, a subsidiary label of Nervous Records. He is currently the frontman of Bronx-based Reggae band Rhythm Master Band. Devoye and Neville Folkes are currently working on an album together. 

Wah Gwan Twon (Antwon Montaque) is a New York-based DJ and producer. Drawing from his Jamaican heritage, his mixes include Caribbean remixes and edits of popular songs to “mash up di dance.” He is a resident DJ at Half Moon BK, Pianos, and Lovers Rock. 

Free entrance.

Satellite is a monthly experimental music series curated by Sanna Almajedi.
