naasMUSIC's 'Laaitie' Compilation With DJ Spoko, Cutting Gems, The Watermark High & More

Cape Town creative agency naasMUSIC drops the 'Laaitie' Compilation featuring new music from DJ Spoko, Cutting Gems and more.


Exactly a year ago today we ran an interview with South African left-of-center media powerhouse naas and its co-founders Thor Rixon and Ian McNair. Since then the Cape Town-based "creative collaborative agency" has proven itself a key player on SA's creative landscape, from championing CT beatmaker Cutting Gems and his debut EP to curating a series of free and exclusive compilations (which have included original material from Card On Spokes, Maramza, Bateleur, Wildebeats, Christian Tiger School's DESERT_HE∆D, and Hawkword). This week naasMUSIC unveiled their fourth and final compilation of the year. The 33-minute Laaitie features new and exclusive (mostly left field electronic) tracks from bacardi house mastermind DJ Spoko, deep house-head THIBO TAZZ, JHB beatsmith The Watermark High, Cutting Gems and more. Listen and download the full compilation below.
