Christmas is coming this weekend and a lot of producers and dj’s are dropping freebies so here’s a little roundup of the things you MUST get before closing the 2011 chapter.

1. Bombaman – Some Swell view VIP [for the ravers]

dl link HERE

Bombaman drops some other free tracks on his soundcloud but this one is the most powerful, the original version was already sick but this vip version adds a little unexpected twist to it.

2. J-Wow – Diva (W.OW. mix) [for the kuduro heads]

J-Wow from Buraka som Sistema and founder ot the much loved Enchufada records share this bootleg of Beyonce he did a couple of years ago: for the kuduro heads!

3. The Weeknd – Echoes of Silence [for the lovers]

The über hyped future rnb outfit the Weeknd share a free album containing great refixes of tracks by Michael Jackson or even April March!

Get the free album on their site

4. Akwaaba – Sem Transporte compilation [another one for the kuduro heads]

Akwaaba’s manager was complaining yesterdayon twitter about the thing that 9 outta 10 tweets about kuduro were refering to Danza kuduro, and to fix this (but also for Christmas) they take us back to the roots of kuduro with some of the roughest tunes coming straight  from Angola on this great compilation. Name your price on bandcamp or get for free if you’re already broke 

5. Spoek Mathambo – Nombolo One

South-African stakhanovist/hyperactive dj/rapper/producer/fashion icon Spoek Mathambo shares with us his latest project Nombolo One. This project goes back to the original south-african kwaito sound.

Name your price or get for free:

6. Jumping Back Slash – 2 freebies [afrotronical kwaito]

To conclude this post we stay in South_Africa with one of my favorite producers around: jumping Back Slash. He shares with us two tracks to thank everyone who pushed his music forward in 2011. The first one is a dubby kwaito tune and the second pushes the bpm higher with a catchy kwaito bassline.

Soundcloud Roundup#2

This week we have kwaito, barefoot dancehall and deep dubstep.

From South-Africa, Sibot, the dj from Sweat.x (project with Spoek Mathambo) shares 5 unreleased kwaito riddims:

One of our favorites producers of South-Africa, Jumping Back Slash, made a remix of this rnb classic from Dru-Hill. Witness the afrotronic freshness!

We go over Austria to find the barefoot king Stereotyp aka Ku Bo. He teams up this time with the multi-format MC Coppa to make a barefoot/dancehall track called Big Flows:

Last but not least, UK producer Simbad remixes Burial’s Fostercare. This track is geting massive support from Kode9 and the Hyperdub family, they can’t be wrong… Witness the deepness!


South-African Bangers

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on February 20, 2010 by thezombiesnakecharmer

It seems that South-Africa has been a kind of goldmine lately. Last year we had the amazing Township Funk from Mujava, awesome kwaito tunes from Dj Cleo, all the work from Spoek Mathambo and his other projects (Slush Puppy Kids, Sweat.x, Playdoe,…)  and more recently with dj Sdunkero

While the blogosphere is staring at the zef (redneck) side of South Africa with Die Antwoord, i have to say that i was kinda turned off when i heard them dissin Spoek in their track Fish Paste… I know it’s the rap game and shit but anyways  i wanted to share some other upcoming artists from S-A who aren’t hype (yet).

First of all i wanted to introduce you Jumping Back Slash. That guy has a kind of unique way to mix classic kwaito with cosmic, futuristic sounds and melodies. So catchy and full of emotions… He has just signed on Pollinate Records so don’t forget to check his future releases!

In the meantime you can download these two afrotronical bangers on his soundcloud page:

On a rougher note we have the great mc Baka who recently teamed up with his mate Soundproof to make the Jam Jar project. They did an amazing dubstep/rap track called Neck Low that you can download/listen here:

And last but not least, the Cape Town based imprint African Dope records is giving away a shitload of goodies for free on his soundcloud page (god i love that site). The mixtape Cape Town is dope by Fletcher, that i shared a few months ago is still there, and still sounds dope (in case you missed it earlier)…
