DJ Massari dove head first into the full two day Portola Festival experience this year and managed to grab a talk with Belgian-Caribbean provocateur Charlotte Adigéry and her long-term musical partner, Bolis Pupul while enjoying the festivities. Tune in on Thursday, October 26th @ 4:30PM to hear their conversation.
Cultural appropriation and racism. Social media vanity. Post-colonialism and political correctness. These are not talking points that you’d ordinarily hear on the dancefloor but Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul are ripping up the rulebook with their debut album, Tropical Dancer.
Featuring standout singles ‘Blenda’, ‘HAHA’, ‘Thank You’, ‘Ceci n’est pas un cliche’ and today’s focus track ‘Making Sense Stop’, Topical Dancer – which cements Charlotte and Bolis as a duo under both their names for the first time and is co-written and co-produced by Soulwax – is both a triumph of kaleidoscopic electro-pop and “a snapshot of how we think about pop culture in the 2020s.”
