AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #35: DJ NEPTUNE

Stream a mixtape of African club bangers from Nigeria's DJ Neptune.


DJ Neptune is one of Nigeria's most popular and well-renowned spinners. He's released bangers with the likes of M.I., Ice Prince, Jesse Jagz, and Lynxx; and previously put in work as Naeto C's official DJ. For Africa In You Earbuds #35 Neptune teleports us to the Naija club scene for an 77-minute mixtape of dance floor scorchers from a West, East, and South Africa

Stream and download AIYE #35: DJ Neptune "The Africa Unite Mix" below — featuring a continent-wide roster of tracks from Burna Boy, Sarkodie, Brymo, Ajebutter22, R2Bees, J Martins, AKA, D'banj and more. For more tunes follow DJ Neptune on his Twitter/Facebook. Big up to Underdog for the cover artwork. Get past the (un)intentional Uranus-joke in the intro and you'll get a solid mix of bangers.
