Card On Spokes 'On The Low' ft. Okmalumkoolkat & Nonku Phiri

Watch SA producer Card On Spokes lyric video for "On The Low," with Okmalumkoolkat and Nonku Phiri.


Here's a new electronic head nodder from three promising South Africans to get you through the first work/school week of the year. Producer Card On Spokes teams up with one of our favorite wordsmiths Okmalumkoolkat and vocalist Nonku Phiri (aka JungFreud) for this underground tale that follows the birth of a relationship. The track & music video for "On The Low," put together by Cape Town creative collective naas, show Okmalumkoolkat & Nonku trading rhymes & choruses over Card On Spokes' rumbling bass line and spiraling synthesizers. The producer told Noisey about how the song came about, “Okamalumkoolkat had written his verses on top of an old unreleased track of mine... that night while partying downstairs at a club, I found Nonku and we went to the studio upstairs and she came up with the chorus. Months later I decided the instrumental wasn't sexy enough for the vocals so I wrote a new track to better fit their lyrics and mood.” Watch it below.
