Spoek 'Hit The Floor' Ft. Cassper Nyovest

Spoek's latest 'Hit The Floor' featuring Cassper Nyovest is a heavy-hitting ode to kwaito flavour.


Spoek just blessed us cold suckas in NYC with an early holiday present– a taste of Joburg summer through the internet. A month removed from his standout joint venture with Shamon Cassette, Sub Pop's afro-futurist hero returns with a kwaito flavourful reminder to "Hit The Floor" as things warm up– which he recorded a few months back with Joburg blazemaker Cassper Nyovest. The Silver Bullit-produced track sees official drop today. Listen to Spoek's welcome letter to SA's hot and heavy-hitting days below.
