Some photos from last weekend’s amazing London show by the Shangaan electro allstars at Rich Mix, easily the best show I’ve seen this year and it was an honour to warm up for Nozinja, The Tshetsha Boys & Tiyiselani Vomaseve. Pics by Jérémie Korenfeld.

Been a huge fan of Afrikan Boy ever since I heard kids on the bus in Brixton playing LIDL on their phones. At the same time as doing a uni degree he’s come a long way, dropping some some big tunes like Lagos Town as well as supporting M.I.A. on tour, even smashing it at […]

Occasional Ghetto Bassquake blogger, allround berserker but brilliant tropical animal, Sumsin is back. To promote his new EP dropping on our London amigo’s label, Pollinate records they say, ‘There’s nothing out there like him, he’s a twisted and excitable young artist bending the rules of carnival culture to bring a new fucked up sound to […]
To soundtrack the UK’s actual current heatwave, here’s the brand new mix from London’s The Heatwave. As usual, an onslaught of jump up bashment vibes, dancehall and a few classics that we’re loving. Woooiii !! The Heatwave – Energy Bashment Mix Sendspace / Mediafire * Rihanna & Vybz Kartel – What’s My Name (Federation Remix) […]
