Codex Club at Panke 🖤
Line up:
𝐃𝐔𝐌𝐀 (𝐍𝐲𝐞𝐠𝐞 𝐍𝐲𝐞𝐠𝐞 𝐓𝐚𝐩𝐞𝐬)
Martin Khanja (aka Lord Spike Heart) and Sam Karugu emerge from Nairobi’s flourishing underground metal scene as former members of the bands Lust of a Dying Breed and Seeds of Datura. Together in 2019 they formed Duma (Darkness in Kikuyu) with Sam abandoning bass for production and guitars and Lord Spike Heart providing extreme vocals to the project.
Recorded at Nyege Nyege Studios in Kampala over three months in mid 2019 their self-titled debut album fuses the frenetic euphoria, unrelenting physicality and rebellious attitude of hardcore punk and trash metal with bone-crunching breakcore and raw, nihilist industrial noise through a claustrophobic vortex of visceral screams.
The savant mix of brutally adrenalized drums, caustic industrial trap, shredding grindcore inspired guitars and abrupt speed changes create a darkly atmospheric menace and is lethal on tracks like the opener “Angels and Abysses” , “Omni” or “Uganda with Sam”
.The gruelling slow techno dirges and monolithic vocals on “Pembe 666” or “Sin Nature” add a pinch of dramatic inevitability bringing a new sense of theatricality and terrifying fate awaiting into the record’s progression.
A sinister sonic aggression of feral intensity with disregard for styles, Duma promises to impact the burgeoning African metal scene moving it into totally new, boundary-challenging experimental territories.

Tatiana Heuman aka QEEI works on music and sound creation between Argentina and Europe. She plays drums, likes loops, repetitions and surprises. Her approach to musical production was founded essentially in a collaborative, free, intuitive and experimental territory where genres and tags are fluid and in permanent mutation. With her solo electronic music project, Tatiana Heuman since 2014 comprises impulse, empowerment, chaos and sensitivity as elements that are deeply influenced by her musical upbringing as trumpet player and drummer with the free improvisation band Ricarda Cometa.
After two EPs released in 2014 and 2016, her first album ›QEEI‹ was out in August 2018 on the New Yorker label Astro Nautico. She has toured Europe, USA and Latin America playing in festivals such as Tauron Nowa Muzyka, CTM and Heroines of Sound. Understanding sounding and listening as a means of manifestation and empowerment, she develops music production and Deep Listening® laboratories and workshops.
She is part of the collectives #VIVAS (female* sounds archive) and TRRUENO both based in Buenos Aires, AR.
