Spoek 'Escape From ’85'
South African genre mutant Spoek came through with a one of a kind project in Escape From '85 — a part-mixtape, part-video game release that celebrates the music and culture of the 1980s. While a celebration of the past, the tape is littered with Spoek's afro-futuristic aesthetic and features inventive originals, reworks and contributions from Yadi, Terri Walker, BB James, Seye, Cherry B, DJ Wool, Cerebral Vortex, Fannie Sosa and DJ Maddjazz. Make sure to play the 11-level video game accompaniment for a trip down memory lane to the time of Mr. T and Grace Jones.
