Delicious Democracy (DC's Creative Advocacy Lab) and Dave Sampe (breathworker and mycologist) are collaborating on an interactive discussion and exploration of the power of mushrooms and fungi to heal our soil, nourish our stomachs, and transform our culture. This collaborative conversation will unpack culture consciousness, civic mutual aid, the power of entheogenic fungi, and how we can be partners with mushrooms to organize our community and build better systems.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS: 

DJ Tennis:

Founder and A&R of Life and Death, Manfredi Romano grew up tour-managing punk bands and organising left-field music events in Italy around the turn of the Millennium. Having completed his studies in computer science at the University of Pisa, Manfredi went on to form DAZE, Italy’s first booking agency solely devoted to electronic music. Drawing on two decades of experience behind the scenes, Romano shifted focus in 2010, establishing himself as a DJ in his own right. As a performer, Tennis valiantly showcases an astute ability to create intimacy in even the vastest of gatherings. As a respected producer, Romano consistently channels his past relationships with post-rock luminaries such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Tortoise and Fugazi into intricately-synthesised electronic constellations. Fine chef and restaurant owner, Tennis splits his time between Miami and Barcelona, where he enjoys riding motorbikes, collecting vintage action-figures and building upon his vinyl record collection - which now numbers over eleven-thousand strong.

Quixosis:

Quixosis  is the mental condition of Don Quixote, and the electronic alias of Ecuadorian DJ/Producer Daniel Lofredo Rota, who has created an aural universe based on analog machines, magnetic delays, and boxes and boxes of master tapes from a lost record label from the 1960s. In a process tied to nostalgia and narratives that are buried by time, Quixosis Transmutes their sound in a mesmerizing and dynamic space that is pure psychedelia, wide wide ambiences punctuated by acid, energetic percussion. 

As A DJ, Quixosis fuses electronic rhythms from the chill to the frenetic with latin american psychedelic music from various eras. From Downtempo to footwork, kuduro, electro, and afro disco, with no fear of dembow. It's an energy flow that seeks the sublime, through broken rhythms that integrate the root of latinamerican psychedelic. From 2020 He is a resident of the London based radio, Worldwide.fm.

As an Archivist and investigator, he has worked on the restoration of a reissue of the CAIFE Records catalog, which was founded by his grandfather and then buried under tonnes of newspaper in his office, where Daniel found them 45 years later. The catalog represents the best recordings of Ecuadorian music from what was called “the golden age” of Ecuadorian National Music. The catalog includes artists like Benitez y Valencia, Los Tres Aces, And the Hermanas Mendoza Suasti, and will be reissued on Honest Jon’s Records in 2021.

Joaquin Cornejo:

Hailing from Quito, Ecuador, producer DJ Joaquin Cornejo has established a proposal that continuously pushes the constraints of genre boundaries in a loose and fluid manner. Looking for soulfulness in machines and inspired by old school dub methods, Joaquin uses old magnetic tape recorders and analog music toys accompanied by acoustic instruments in an effort to create deep electronic music full of texture and emotion. His sonic explorations range between deep ambient works, latin folkloric and fast passed tribal rave music.

Having been active for only 4 years Joaquín has already established collaborations with globally recognized artists and labels such as El Buho, Quixosis, ZZK Records, YUKU Records, Wonderwheel Recordings and more. He has also been featured in magazines such as DJ Mag and XRL8R and has been interviewed on BBC Radio 6, Worldwide FM, and other platforms.
