Our South African “correspondent” ( sounds good don’t Dexterity just did this great post on some more South African music.

The problem though was that he buried some awesome shiit deep inside the post where it’s likely to escape your attention.

So I thought it was begging to be brought out more into the limelight ands so here it is, thanks to Dexterity a.k.a Greg 😉

This is Shangaan Electro and IMHO it’s shiiit hot.  We heard about this in SA but did not get to actually hear any until now!
