Moroka ‘Bad Fun’

After the release of his debut EP on Pollinate, Hackney’s Moroka continues his onslaught of jacking South African house with a grimey London bass sound. This new jam has got to be my favourite yet sounding like DJ Cleo rinsing it out at Night Slugs. Moroka – Bad Fun

Shake it nah

Got my head too stuck in the books, and I missed this tune by Naeto C. But, DJ Blu Dragon (what up Steve!) of Little Baobab got me caught up to speed when I played there this past Halloween weekend. Had the crowd going mad, singing and shaking along!
