African YouTube

Ach!

That kwaito track is great. It kinda points to the idea that the London house stuff at the moment has a real massive African influence to it.

:) more coming soon. i know I keep saying that, it takes a while but I get there eventually.

Yeah that Cleo mix and the Brickz track are amazing, ooh hadn't heard that DJ Mujava before (the last one), might have to pick that up

CD sounds wicked

nice one.

On the money with the regaaeton stuff, I tried picking up some reggaeton cos the beats are so similar (you might like DJ NG http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mk3LjhpOKd0 Gavin, it's what the UK house scene has been doing for the past year, v similar) but didn't really concentrate on it long enough, got distracted! Would love to hear a mix of that and some kwaito

that mafikizolo in your links reminded me so much of spiritual life music, beautiful african-tinged u.s. house, this is like a perfect mirror image. nice!

Is spiritual life music like Blaze and Ten City and that sort of house?

Darned cockwombles.
That last youtube clip is amazing! As you said, Gavin, some sick dance moves too.... When you're talkign about "most coked-out Dominican reggaeton", what artists do you mean? Sounds just up my street...I have a bachaton compilation, but maybe that's not what you're talking about...?

Mistersloane - thank you again for your ceaseless dropping of knowledge on this stuff. Would download that mix if only my computer wasn't shite...:confused:

hopefully this will make me proud to be african-right now i am not. Maybe i should be, maybe im not supposed to be, but i am not. All I see are these people wielding machetes, corruption, AIDS poor babies, churchies :eek: on some fanatic shit..and i think that Africa has lost the battle, completly. Maybe there is some stuff to be proud of in Africa, Im sure Africa has been responsible for some ill ass shit, but i dont see that shit..maybe theres some cool subversive Africans laying in the cut and them motherfuckers dont wanna be televised..maybe thers some people like me..but when the cameras is out them motherfuckers aint nowhere to be found. I feel like- the west or something has done some shit to africa-like wheres your shit- thats some shit from the west-wheres your shit? Its cool to be African - Let DEad Prez tell you, then rewind that shit and let them tell you again, but that shit wears off. I dont see some cool AFRICAN shit..not some bleeding african savage shit, corrupt fucking lawless, nasty child sacrafice , 50cent wanna be, maybe i can be down in the west , genocide, oil rich but people poor shit....anyways, thank you for permitting me this rant..Im actually from JA, but you know how they say we all from the motherland and shit, I aint even to proud to be from JA...unless you wanna talk about some bob marley shit, for the most part Im wit some SUNRA i aint from this shit shit, anlantic things could be better mind set, that aint real but its nice to imagine. Im actually proud to be british, I keep my passport in a special place, its pretty sacred isnt it-yes it is-yes it is..ahhhhhhhh....anyway, this was fun...AFRICA gimmie somthing...

DJ Mjava sounds great.
Where can I get this?
Is it on vinyl? (I am old)
or can i buy a CD and then cut my own vinyl?
or is it strickly downloads?

Marvellous Mavusana : Double M

This is more laid-back, urban kwaito with rapping in a great rasping brogue. He's rapping in I think Sotho but if anyone knows the language for sure I'd love to know, I still can't quite tell sometimes between Sotho, Khosa and Zulu (embarrassing). Mavusana also appears to have worked with DJ Mujava (see above). I love this album.

House Prescriptions

2007

Funky, deep house. Tracks 6-9 are my favourites if you're put off at first, which go into much more minimal, funky, tech based work which pisses all over the stuff Londoners are trying to do at the moment under the term 'funky house'.
They've had a bit of recognition outside of Africa and the second track from the CD, Latin Soul, is available on 12 from here
