KSMBA Releases Debut Single ‘Emwe’

Australian DJ KSMBA released their debut single ‘Emwe’ on June 14th via Happy Wax Records. This track blends hypnotic grooves with deep percussive rhythms, creating a dynamic and captivating sound.

‘Emwe,’ the first single from their upcoming EP, takes its name from the Runyankole dialect spoken in Western Uganda. KSMBA explains, “My Ugandan heritage, with its strong traditions in drumming and dancing, heavily influenced me. The early Detroit techno scene, rooted in political resistance, Blackness, and Queerness, also inspired me. Additionally, I’m grateful to be part of a scene with Black queer artists working in Naarm.”
