Audio: Cape Town Night Sweats [Mixtape DL] + Launch Party

Download a mixtape from Cape Town underground electronic label Wet Dreams Recordings.


Night Sweats Vol. 1 is the first in a series of mixtapes featuring South African underground remixes commissioned by (the boldly-named) Cape Town electronic label Wet Dreams Recordings. Volume 1 features the oft-blogged about Jumping Back Slash — who submits a sprawling rework of Lana Del Rey — as well as remixes from label brainchild Big Space (who tackles Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti), plus producers Ghigy Mabifhi, Lorenzo, Big Space and Marco Filby (who retouches Missy Elliot). In commemoration, the crew will be hosting a launch party this Friday, Dec. 14 in the basement of Senator Park in Cape Town — see all details for the event. Stream and download Night Sweats Vol. 1 below.
