Stream Little Dragon's South African Mixtape

Stream Little Dragon's kwaito and SA house heavy South African mixtape.


You might remember Little Dragon visited South Africa last year, shooting some stripped-down live renditions of their singles, among other things. It seems the sounds of SA stayed with the Swedish group, as they've now released the 47-minute, kwaito-leaning Little Dragon Went To South Africa mixtape via Fader. Little Dragon's mix is heavily weighted with the don DJ Cleo tracks — a popular choice among several mixes we've covered — and features selections from DJ Tira, Oskido and Black Motion and others (Eddie STATS is claiming they jacked his old Township Palms playlist *shots*).  Stream Little Dragon's mix and watch them perform"Little Man" unplugged in SA below.

Killbeatz needs no introduction. The producer born Joseph Addison is one of the biggest hitmakers as far as afrobeats is concerned. From R2Bees to Sarkodie to FuseODG to M.anifest, Killbeatz has blessed your favorite singers and rappers alike with the soundtracks to their biggest hits. From the azonto era to the global spread of afrobeats, his contribution to African music as a whole cannot be overstated.

However, Killbeatz' influence doesn't stop at just music production. Behind the scenes, he's a complete industry player. The CEO of Ghanaian record label Legacy Life Entertainment, he's responsible for bringing star singer King Promise to the limelight.
