Words by Zach Weg & Alyssa Klein

Prolific beat collective Soulection just turned four-years-old, and now the Los Angeles-based record label/radio show/platform is headed to South Africa for a series of events in Cape Town and Johannesburg this month. First up, Honolulu-based producer Mr. Carmack hits Cape Town Electronic Music Festival on Saturday, February 7th (22:00-23:00 at the Audiotorium). Then, on Tuesday, February 10th, Soulection's The Sound of Tomorrow at The Side Show will feature DJ sets by Soulection co-founder Joe Kay and The Whooligan (aka San Francisco's Julio Galvez), alongside Cape Town's own SLABOFMISUSE, global future bass producer Maramza, White Nite, and a few special guests. Lastly, Joe Kay and The Whooligan will head to Johannesburg for an event co-hosted by SA beat platform Weheartbeat (who are also bringing down Young Fathers later this month) at The Poolside in Maboneng, featuring sets from Raiko, JustThembaSymaticsY∆NO$$, and Polyestervelcro.
