Spoek Mathambo's South African Rap Mix

Spoek Mathambo assembles 52 minutes of the heaviest hitting rap joints to come out of South Africa on 'Cava The Combo (South African Rap Mix).'


Last week was another one for the books for Spoek Mathambo. First there was a surprise Sunday revelation that Spoek had teamed up with Josiah WiseChllngr, and other musician friends for their worldwide CosmaCosmica dropbox project. Next up came a percussive remix of Migos and Drake's "Trophies," followed by the 36 minute "Swedish Rap Mix." The cherry on top came on Friday with a "bacardi house" Pegasus Warning remix collab (which you can download here) with DJ Spoko and DJ Mujava. Yesterday Spoek followed up his storybook week with one of the most solid mixtapes to come to light in 2014– 52 minutes of the heaviest hitting rap joints to come out of South Africa in recent years with music from Riky Rick, Okmalumkoolkat, Cassper Nyovest, The TeMple, BIG FKN GUN, PHFat, falsetto soulsmith Samthing Soweto, and more.

Interview

This Compilation Shines a Light On East African Underground Music

We talk to a few of the artists featured on the Music For the Eagles compilation from Uganda's Nyege Nyege.

Nyege Nyege, a label in Kampala, Uganda is channelling the confidence brimming over a whole continent. Africa is no longer the future. For dance music, its time is right now.

Music For the Eagles is a compilation released in conjunction with Soundcloud to showcase the best new acts that East Africa has to offer outside the mainstream. A new wave of artists firmly blasting non-conformist energy for you to spasm to. Music that takes you places. Otim Alpha's high BPM wedding frenzy of incessant rasping vocals accompanied by feverous violin will have you clawing the walls to oblivion. Anti Vairas' dancehall from a battleship with super galactic intentions doesn't even break a sweat as it ruins you. FLO's beautiful sirens call, is a skittish and detuned nursery rhyme that hints at a yearning for love but reveals something far more unnerving. Ecko Bazz's tough spiralling vocal over sub-bass and devil trap energy is an anthem that can only be bewailed. And Kidane Fighter's tune is more trance-like prayer. These are only some of the highlights for you to shake it out to.

We got to chat with a few of the artists featured on the Music For the Eagles compilation as they took a break from the studio below.
