Electroni Kongo DJ Set Electroni Kongo are a Kongolese Techno band comprising arranger, bassist and guitarist Mulele Matondo and electronic musician Ben Eyes. Mulele fled a war torn Kongo to West Yorkshire and met Ben in an attic studio in Leeds. The pair formed a strong bond based on an appreciation of each other’s musical heritage. Mulele’s experience of playing guitar and bass in top AfroBeat bands across Nigeria and Kongo met with Ben’s love of the rhythms and fluid synths of acid techno and avant bleeps from the North of England. The resulting music combines the energy, melody and rhythmic intensity of Mulele’s Kongolese music combined with the future-facing sound of Ben’s driving electronics.
