AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #7: BROTHA ONACI


Brotha Onaci is the kwaito obsessed co-founder of People’s DJs Collective and past host of Chi-town’s frantic Sonic Diaspora parties. For the seventh installment of our Africa In Your Earbuds series, the now Philly-residing DJ sent over a truly continental 52-minute mix, featuring cuts from SA's TKZee, Congolese word-sorcerer Baloji, and makossa master Sam Fan Thomas, among others.

Africa In Your Earbuds #7 is all about sonic and geographical range, as Brotha Onaci manages to seamlessly swerve from South African kwaito-house to sparkly Equatorial Guinea pop and back with a single vinyl scratch. Stream and grab AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #7: BROTHA ONACI — 'SONIC DIASPORA' below! It's a good 'un.
