British-born, Ghanaian/Russian/German Henrietta Smith-Rolla, goes by Afrodeutsche as an ode to her rare roots. She has recently exploded on the UK scene with her Afrofuturistic electro, techno, Detroit house, and classical sound. It may seem like quite the mix, but it works. Her first-ever live gig, she opened for Carl Craig in Ibiza in 2016. Now, she hosts a monthly radio show on NTS where she keeps listeners coming back to hear her unexpected mixes of dark techno, jacking house, and footwork. 2019 was a big year for her. Publications like The Guardian and Dummy Mag sang her praises after her 2018 release of her debut album “Break Before Make” on Skam. She has since released an EP on River Rapid and hit the decks at Dekmantel, Sónar, Berghain, and Printworks.
