Mix n Blend 3

Operating out of idyllic Cape Town, Mix n Blend is an eclectic trio that are fast gaining attention on the back of their bass-heavy DJ sets and a great debut album for influential South African electronic label African Dope, formerly home to Waddy Jones’ (aka Die Antwoord’s) previous act The Constructus Corporation, The Real Estate Agents and Felix Laband (who also released an acclaimed album on Compost Records).

Mix n Blend’s first long-player ‘Look Mom, No Hands’ (Soundcloud preview here) features an array of guests and a variety of styles – from dub and dubstep to electronica and jazz – and it’s a fairly decent reflection of South Africa’s unique multi-culturalism. This fact no doubt helped it garner two South African Music Award nominations (in the Best Alternative Album and Best Producer categories) – we’ll know this Saturday night whether they won or not.

The act’s diverse output (plenty of which is available on their Soundcloud page) also includes some terrific remixes, re-edits and bootlegs, a few of which I’ve made available for you below.
