Zanzibar Chanel

Formed in 2011, production partners Zac Segbedzi and Luis C.L. comprise the wild duo that has become a fixture of the underground scene in their hometown Melbourne, Australia. Originally performing in full drag. Zanzibar’s early live shows established the formula, with Zac fronting the group on the mic and Luis spinning their original productions at the decks. With no released material, 2012 and 2013 saw Zanzibar perform across every major festival stage and underground club throughout Australia, including an infamous spot on the first ever Boiler Room Australia broadcast and opening for Moodymann at Golden Plains Festival; all by reputation and word of mouth alone. Maintaining their DIY ethos and aesthetic, 2014 saw the release of their debut EP ‘Funky Junk’ on Ruff Records, a new label established by Zac; now sold out and in its second pressing. Relocating to Germany in 2014, Zac has been showing European audiences what Zanzibar Chanel is about. Working with the likes of Francis Inferno Orchestra and German DJ Arthur Rieger at the decks, taking the place of Luis C.L. The original duo are still working on new music with several releases in the wings for 2014/15. To cap it all the duo are planning a full European tour for spring 2015.
