"Pangani took over the SOLAS Stage with little more than a sound deck and his own ingenuity and turned it into a huge party. The Austrian DJ created immersive soundscapes that turned the forest into faraway and unreachable places. From bubbling, pressurized sounds that created imagery of being under water, to flowing, muffled tracks that – if we can take a bit of creative license – can be described as the sounds of your own body, if you were nestled underneath your rib cage and listening to your own heart and pulse." Latitude Festival

In kiswahili, the word “Pangani” describes a place of spirits, where energy can be felt and vibrations make you move.
As a sonic storyteller, Pangani fuses otherworldly soundscapes and deep basslines into adventurous psychedelic dub. Detailed synth work and crisp complex beat constructions are braided with flashes of vocals and acoustic instruments, to create bubbling and pressurized imaginary sound worlds.


Pangani is an austrian psychedelic music project formed by Sebastian Frisch in 2014.
His musical journey guided him through reggae bands, street-music in kenyan hoods, sound-art installations and various electronic music explorations all around the world. During his master studies, he started to develop his performance setup. Instruments like the foleyboard enable the artist to freely play in the moment and let his audience experience the magic of electronic live music.
Pangani self-released his debut Album ‘In The Moment’ through a crowdfunding campaign in 2016. His release tour brought him to many beautiful festivals like BOOM Festival (Chillout Gardens) [PT], TodaysArt Festival [NL] and Latitude Festival (Solas) [UK].
