Audio: Indidginus "Babylon King ft. Teba"


South African producer Indidginus' tunes lean towards the very bass-heavy, post dancehall realm. In "Babylon King," he's joined by Cape Town reggae singer Teba Shumba for a blown-out electro riddim that touches on topics like Marcus Garvey, biblical stories and (necessary) high-grade spliffs. The thick rumbling bass grabs the ear immediately as Teba lays out race divisions: "Blacker than the Panther them whiter than cocaine." Indidginus' Sofa Surfer LP is out now.
