#OKAYAFRICADC South African House Fiesta Live Mix

Jamming to the latest tunes from the motherland in the #OKAYAFRICADC live African mix.


#OKAYAFRICADC was back at it again! This live African mix was recorded at club Tropicalia in Washington D.C, this past Wednesday. #OKAYAFRICADC was created in the name of promoting the latest music and culture coming from Africa and its diaspora. Our party commands the capital’s dancefloor with resident spinner DJ Underdog providing sounds that are mind-wide and foot-friendly and, for this installment, Jahsonic accompanying the mood of the night. The DJs painted the sonic wall with the best South African underground tracks from the motherland. If you love house music, this mix was dedicated to you! Spread love!

PS: Afrobeat, kwaito, kuduro, zouk, soukous, azonto, kukere, coupe decale and hip life were not exempt from this past Wednesdays festivities. What will be lacking are pretensions, commercial radio nonsense, and egos. Learn more about Okayafrica Wednesdays by following our Facebook and Twitter. No track list available......it was a long night!
