Naas Producers Daddy Warbucks & Andy Islands Premiere Mixes

Stream a pair of mixes from Cape Town-based naas producers Daddy Warbucks and Andy Islands.

Cape Town's naas is fast becoming a hub for left-of-field music and film in South Africa. The creative agency, who last year assisted in putting out Cape Town beatmaker Cutting Gems' excellent debut EP, started off the new year with perhaps their most ambitious effort yet, the stunning track and video for Card On Spokes' electronic head nodder "On The Low" featuring Boyzn Bucks rapper Okmalumkoolkat and vocalist Nonku Phiri. "We do management, bookings, publishing, distribution, marketing, PR, artistic development, organise touring, events, music videos, photoshoots, design," naas say. Today we're excited to premiere a pair of mixes from the agency's latest future-sounding producers Daddy Warbucks and Andy Islands. For more, keep up with all things naas on Facebook, SoundCloud, and Twitter, and download/listen to mixes from Daddy Warbucks and Andy Islands 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.
