Aguila is mad about vinyl. Over 1000 black covers are arranged in the best possible way in his private studio. He bought his first Technics at the age of 17 and hasn’t stopped to treat vinyls as rare oyster pearls.
As a boy of the late seventies, he is much influenced by disco, italo and wave. His mum however danced her ass off at the PopCorn so soulful gems are highly familiar to him. Add this to him being discotheque-born at the end of New Beat and start of House and Acid and you have a mixture of retro and new, from Aretha Franklin over The Hacienda to Inflagranti.
Currently playing in bars and basements, from private parties to events in metro stations.

Kinky Afro is a brand new music project by two Italian Disc Jockeys, paying a musical homage to late 70's, rare groove, the golden age of Disco together with Italo Disco and Hi NRG as a passionate extra.
The couple plays also an Electro/Crossover DJ sideproject which has been appearing throughout Europe and Italy of course, but when it comes to Kinky Afro they are for low key, this typical old school attitude helps explaining why this international couple of DJ's prefers not to reveal identities. Does it mean they should be struggling for visibility now? Who cares.
Nonetheless, they want to target a difference audience, being far from those shortlived wonders, blatantly transient as only some clear sunny hours in Ireland can be.
Kinky Afro Disc Jockeys will probably show you the obvious, that is the Chic got one of the most impressive rhythm bars on Earth, there is more to Disco Music than the embarassing Village People and the Bee Gees, the Soul music gave lineguides over the best output in late 70's, the Incredible Bongo Band had virtually written what Stone Roses later called Fool's Gold, the Kraftwek influenced almost all of what you've heard electronic in the 80's and Italo Disco is nothing to do with Sabrina Salerno or some new wave guitars over echoing voices and woeful machine drums.
Should we mention who nowadays could beat Grace Jones' impossible charisma?
