Audio: Spoek Mathambo's #APARTHEIDAFTERPARTY #JUNE16 Mix


Spoek Mathambo crams 60+ tracks (!) into a mix that aims to showcase snippets of exciting South African youth culture from the last 40 years. Released with Thiis Magazine, #APARTHEIDAFTERPARTY #JUNE16 mix cycles through kwaito, Mzansi house, glitch-hop and a number of other styles. Spoek tells Thiis Mag:

My #APARTHEIDAFTERPARTY mix describes a South Africa blooming and bursting at the seams with youth energy and talent. The youth of South Africa have come a long way from that generation of brave June 16 1976 kids, who mobilised their entire communities and started a tide of change that would result in a free South Africa. That was one very special kind of youth energy…one that’s allowed us (the youth now) many freedoms that were unfathomable then (for better or worse).

How Technology Is Playing a Crucial Role in the #EndSARS Protests

Young people in Nigeria have successfully managed to use technological innovations to organize and make the #EndSARS protests run incredibly efficiently and easily. This moment will go down in history as a revolution that was birthed via technology.

It has been more than a week since young people in Nigeria took to the streets to demand that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, infamously known as SARS, be scrapped for good. Created in 1992, this police unit was originally set up to beat back armed robbery, the use of firearms and rising cases of kidnappings that grew in the late eighties. However, the unit went rogue, becoming more notorious for its savagery than actual crime-fighting. With a rap sheet ranging from profiling, harassment and assault to, in more extreme cases, slaughtering innocent citizens, these quasi-officers have unleashed terror on the nation for more than two decades.

Their victims are predominantly young Nigerians profiled on appearance—whether they drive exotic vehicles, use the latest gadgets, have their hair dyed or locked, or have piercings. In some cases, working in tech often gets conflated with financial fraud. For people who don't meet the absurd criteria, the mood of the officer can often become the difference between life and death.
