Spoek Mathambo's Future Sound Of Mzansi Mix Series: Aero Manyelo

Download the latest in Spoek Mathambo's 'Future Sound of Mzansi' documentary mixtape series, featuring music from Aero Manyelo.


Spoek Mathambo and filmmaker Lebogang Rasethaba's Future Sound of Mzansi has the potential to go down as South Africa's definitive electronic music documentary. With the film set to make its world premier in two weeks at the Durban International Film Festival (and with Johannesburg and Cape Town screenings to follow in August), Spoek has promised to roll out a series of Mzansi mixtapes dedicated to artists and genres featured in the doc. So far he's delivered with top notch tapes devoted to DJ Spoko, Okmalumkoolkat, and KZN's mysterious Qgom sub-genre. This week Spoek lets Herbal 3 Records' Limpopo-born founder Aero Manyelo take the reins with a supremely infectious, bouncy, house-influenced 50 minutes of "new, exclusive, unreleased tracks and some classics from himself and the herbal3 familia." Listen on below and grab a free download while you still have a chance.
