'Watergate 27' will be out on Watergate Records on 19 October

Afro-house mystery man Hyenah has been chosen as the next selector in the long-running Watergate mix album series from the club of the same name.

Watergate 27 will be released via Watergate Records on 19 October, and finds Hyenah – who, as the picture shows, DJs shrouded in a mask and scarf to keep his true identity hidden – dropping bombs from the likes of Kerri Chandler, Henrik Schwarz, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Pablo Fierro and more. 

"When creating this mix," says Hyenah, "I wanted to take people on a journey that represents what I do and what I stand for. I am building bridges. So I wanted to create a mix that does exactly that. For me, the beauty in music is when different styles and cultures meet and become something new. I like the backbone to be grooves rooted in African rhythms. These grooves grow in different directions. I wanted to combine all of them in a mix that tells its own story, that evolves and explores the diverse branches of the music I love so much."
