Fact Mix 789: Afrodeutsche

“Henrietta Smith-Rolla’s musical journey started as a child growing up in Devon, where she took violin lessons at a young age and would dance along to Soul II Soul’s ‘Back to Life’ on Top of the Pops. In 2007 she moved to Manchester, where she began to make her own electronic music inspired by Drexciya, Underground Resistance, Afrofuturism, and Detroit’s rich legacy under the name of Afrodeutsche.

In 2018, Smith-Rolla released her debut album Break Before Make on the legendary Manchester label Skam Records, home of early releases from Autechre and Boards of Canada. Last year she provided the first release on Eclair Fifi’s River Rapid label, and scored a BAFTA-nominated documentary, Kamali, which was released this year on SA Recordings alongside a sample library.”
