We’ve been championing DJ Spoko ever since we heard his top-notch percussion craft on DJ Mujava‘s massive hit “Township Funk.” The South African producer, who honed his African dance music production skills under shangaan electro mastermind Nozinja, has been churning out his own “bacardi house” production style for years now. He’s now released the Ghost Town EP on indie boutique label True Panther. Hear DJ Spoko’s “Azange,” the lead track off that EP below — it features Spoko’s pals Magaula and Puzuzu on the mic. For more from DJ Spoko check out his previously featured music video for “Cucumba,” remix of Sun Airway and Grave Mix. Check out DJ Spoko’s “Azange!”
