Christian Tiger School Preview Unreleased Beats In Sonar 2014 Cape Town Mix

Cape Town production duo Christian Tiger School preview unreleased material in a new mix ahead of Sonar 2014 in Cape Town.


It's been more than two years since Luc Vermeer and Sebastian Zanasi's Cape Town production duo Christian Tiger School released their outstanding hip-hop beat zen debut album, Third Floor. Since then the guys have gone on to play SXSW in Austin, Texas (with our very own Okayplayer family), Primavera in Spain, and most recently CMJ in New York City, where Seb and Luc were selected to participate in a recording session with NYU music students.

We're still awaiting news of a proper release for their sophomore LP, Chrome Tapes, but until then CTS are previewing their new experimental electronica-influenced material ahead of Sonar December 15th-16th in Cape Town, where the guys are set to perform alongside Pet Shop Boys, Fantasma, Fever Trails, PHfat, Jon Hopkins and others. The 25-minute mix includes 9 tracks of b-sides, works-in-progress and "general ideas." Listen on below, and check the group's Sonar profile here. For more on Christian Tiger School, watch them record a track with Bilal and World's Fair for our Player Xchange series in the Okayafrica TV episode below.

Dying Lagoons Reveal Mexico’s Environmental Racism

In the heart of a traditionally Black and Indigenous use area in Southwest Mexico, decades of environmental destruction now threatens the existence of these communities.

On an early morning in September 2017, in a little fishing village in the Pacific coast of Oaxaca, called Zapotalito, thousands of dead fish floated on the surface of the Chacahua-Pastoría lagoons. A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
