AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #8: DJ SABINE - 'MZANSI'


In the latest installment of Africa In Your Earbuds, Brooklyn's own DJ Sabine takes us on a foray into modern South African jams. Mzansi sees Sabine running through an exclusively SA set featuring cuts from genre heavy-hitters like Culoe De Song, as well as Lemon & Herb, Black Motion, and Siso K with Tumi.

You can peep more of DJ Sabine from her Oyasound production and at her monthly "grassroots dance culture" Brooklyn Mecca parties. A big up to Underdog for the crafty hands on the artwork. Stream and download the endless percussive loops and house tinges of AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #8: MZANSI below!

Let Jojo Abot's New Afrofuturistic Video Hypnotize You

The Ghanaian artist releases the new video for "Nye VeVe SeSe," an entirely iPhone-recorded track.

Jojo Abot is rounding out a strong year which has seen her tour South Africa, release the NGIWUNKULUNKULU EP and work with institutions like the New Museum, Red Bull Sound Select and MoMA on her art and performances.

Jojo is now sharing her latest music video for "Nye VeVe SeSe," a song featured on her iPhone-only production project, Diary Of A Traveler.

"Nye Veve Sese is an invitation to let go of the burden of pain and suffering that keeps us from becoming our best and greatest selves," a statement from Jojo's team reads. "Asking the question of why pain is pleasurable to both the one in pain and the source of the pain. Often time the two being one and the same."

Watch her new "meditative piece," which was shot in Bedstuy, Brooklyn, below.

Jojo Abot will be playing her final US show of the year in New York City alongside Oshun on October 26 at Nublu 151. Grab your tickets here.
