MIDWEEK MIXXXTAPES: KWAITEK / MAMA TESTA / SPOEK MATHAMBO

Two big helpings of South African beats this week from Kwaitek & Spoek Mathambo plus some Mexican FutureRetroRaveHouse from Mama Testa.

Kwaitek

One of those mixes in which every new track coming in has me reaching for google. Absolutely love Kwaito but it requires a lot of time investment to get deep into it, and as someone who is also obsessed with every single other genre, I’m glad there’s others out there like Kwaitek to do the digging for me…

Spoek Mathambo

The ‘bbq mix’ of his own Mshini Wam near the start lulled me into thinking here was Spoek in mellow mode, but it doesn’t take long to realise this mix is bonkers. That much is pretty clear from the track list but as well as the amount that’s crammed in there’s quite a lot of jarring transitions here – but the overall effect of kwaito, hip hop, soul, punk & jazz all rubbing up together is well worth a listen. Tune of the mix for me, given my recent Disco issues, was Sipho Mabuse’s ‘Breakdance’… SUBLIME
