Spoek Mathambo's 'Escape From '85' Mixtape

Check out Spoek Mathambo's latest project "Escape From '85," featuring a twelve track mixtape and an interactive video game.


The incredible Spoek Mathambo is out here once again, this time dropping his newest mixtape titled Escape from ’85. This one of a kind project is said to be a culmination of inspirations from his birth year, putting us in the passenger seat of the DeLorean as the old intertwines with the future. As if the mixtape wasn’t enough, Spoek goes in even further, adding a VIDEO GAME to give life to his already lively set of tracks. The game includes eleven levels featuring some of our favorite characters of the 80’s, reviving old school icons like Mr. T and Grace Jones amongst others. With selected songs from the mixtape playing behind each level, this video game is sure to be nothing short of a dope experience for both gamers and audiophiles alike. Peep the ‘cloud below to hear and download the mix tape! Play the game over at Spoek's site.
