Spoek Mathambo - Mshini Wam (BBE)

Spoek Mathambo’s brand of South African club music provides disturbing yet reassuring grooves for mind and body. Fusing incisive lyricism with skewed electronic rhythms and a preponderance of bass, Mathambo has created a distinctive broth that he terms Township Tech. Highlights on the album include the bassy title track, carefree Let Them Talk and nasty Thunder. South Africa has a recent rich electronic music history and Spoek Mathambo provides the next chapter in the story.
