Audio: BLK JKS + Athi-Patra Ruga’s Sound of Johannesburg Mix


Thanks to The Fader, we were hipped to this latest episode of DJ N-RON's Domus mixtape series.  Here he explores the sonic landscape of South Africa's Jo'burg with our indie-rocking friends BLK JKS and visual artist Athi-Patra Ruga.  When talking about living in an ever-changing and evolving city, the BLK JKS say "While some look to European cities and envy their long-established routines, venues, and structures, there are those of us who see a blank canvas and embrace it."  Listen below, and click here to download.  Tracklisting after the jump.
