Crammed has released over 250 albums and 250 singles by artists from all over the world, ranging from Aksak Maboul to Bel Canto, Carl Craig, DJ Morpheus (& the Freezone series), Eddie Fowlkes, Flat Earth Society, The Gruesome Twosome, The Honeymoon Killers (let's skip some letters) ... to Snooze, Suba, Tek 9 & 4hero, Zap Mama, Hector Zazou and Zuco 103 ...

Crammed's sub-labels have included the Made To Measure composers' series, world music collection Cramworld, electronic music imprints SSR, Language & Selector, and Ziriguiboom, a collection devoted to new Brazilian music. Nowadays, Crammed would like to believe that borders between genres are no longer indispensable, so most releases tend to come out under the simple "Crammed" banner.

Crammed's current roster includes Konono N°1, Cibelle, Koçani Orkestar, Taraf de Haidouks, Bebel Gilberto, Balkan Beat Box, DJ Dolores, Tuxedomoon, Shantel, Kasai Allstars, Think Of One, Mahala Rai Banda, newcomers Lonely Drifter Karen & Allá, and more.



Ahead of their debut album, "Kaloli"(out June 12th), Kampala’s afro-electro outfit present the latest blistering music video

The music video for Black Kaveera is like an optical fever dream. A dizzying collage of incidental tour footage smashed together by drummer Spooky-J harnesses the band’s brutal live energy.   

In typical lockdown fashion, Spooky looks to the past for inspiration for this piece. Elaborating the sentiments of their DIY, strobe-filled video for Kadodi, he condenses a range of footage captured by the band in their few years on the road across Europe and Uganda into a hallucinatory five minute evocation of the band’s entrancing multi-cultural energy. But Black Kaveera is much more than a just a pummelling groove: Black Kaveera is an ode to the Ugandan way, a wordless story of use and refuse.
An immediacy is apparent in its structure, an urgent call to act, to move. Nihiloxica put two traditions in conversation, and the topic of discussion is getting heated.
