AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #25: JAKOBSNAKE

Download a 55-minute African In Your Earbuds mixtape from Cape Town-based producer/DJ JakobSnake.


JakobSnake's a man of many trades: producer, Spoek Mathambo drummer, rapper in Cape Town's Voicetag , DJ for BTEAM and organizer of the Cape Town Electronic Music Festival. Like his projects, JakobSnake's selections in Africa In Your Earbuds #25 hover closely to the Cape Town scene; his mixtape features electronic bliss from Jumping Back Slash, Richard The Third, Ruffest and others.

"This mix is an extension of a series of parties I started called AfroClap!" writes JakobSnake via e-mail, "A platform to expose Tropical, African and South African culture to a market who love it, but who also are inundated with sounds from the rest of the world." Stream/grab AIYE #25: JakobSnake below! Shouts out to Underdog for the cover art.
