VF Live: Budino #2 with drummer Enrico Perez



Afrobeat, funk, and reggae records accompanied by live drumming.

In VF Live, our favourite artists take you inside their homes and record shops, for intimate mixes and performances.

For Italian born, Berlin-based DJ Budino’s latest VF Live appearance, she plays records alongside drumming from Enrico Perez:

“I had the pleasure to invite Enrico Perez, an Afro-Cuban percussionist, to join me for this set. We used to do this a lot a few years back when he’d come to my place to teach me how to play congas. At the end, I’d play some records, and he’d play congas till late at night. We haven’t seen each other for several years, and it was a lot of fun to jam with Enrico again – he is an amazing percussionist, and it’s impossible not to move your ass while he is playing.”
