Download Brotha Onaci x DrewCool's African electronic music "Township Treats" mixtape


Kwaito-obsessed selectors Brotha Onaci and DrewCool combine forces in the South African-heavy Township Treats mixtape. The mix draws inspirations from DrewCool's "numerous trips to South Africa, [through which] he was drawn to house music and immersed... into the township sounds of Pretoria, Durban, and Soweto." For more from the artists, check out Brotha Onaci's Africa In Your Earbuds tape and DrewCool's Mzansi Unearthed mixes. Download the hour-long Township Treats below.
