Featuring Live Performances by:
AFTA-1 featuring Nikko Gray
You can find AFTA-1 eight hours in the future. He’s sitting on a supernova, shooting down Pluto moons with love; then running back and laying the track in your lap. Brush the moon dust off your clothes and plug in your speakers for a shape-shifting, time-collapsing, body-breaking, heart-merging experience.
With an amazing debut titled Aftathoughts Vol. 1 already under his belt along with impressive remixes of Esthero, Little Dragon, and Jessie Boykins, as well as the ravenously downloaded LOVE IS REAL mixtape series in circulation, Afta-1 is set to blow your mind with his intergalactic beats and ethereal vibes.

She blew minds in 2009 by tackling Aaliyah's classic "4-Page Letter" with Afta-1 on the beats. Be prepared for her debut performance with Afta-1 only at Strictly Social.
