MMM, Old Apparatus Meet Tshetsha Boys And Shangaan Electro
Murderous MMM disco-house sharp and succinct, witty and hedonistic fore-grounding the soulfulness of the Tshetsha's singing. The OA is a cavernous, atmospheric, stately steppers.




Actress Meets Shangaan Electro
An immersive, slashing, ecstatic thumper, just about getting Mars on the radio; and a kind of unhinged marimba and thumb-piano variation, grubbing around manically in half-memories of African polyrhythm.



Rashad And Spinn, R.P. Boo Meet Tshetsha Boys And Shangaan Electro
Lethal footwork from three originators. The A is dancefloor murder, honed and nasty, vintage Chicago and Detroit gone clear across the SA border; the flip is a fierce, futuristic juke vocal collage, hard as nails. ...



Pinch And Shackleton Boracay Drift, with Morphosis Remix
Extra to the LP, with a magnificent, epic, head-scrambling remix, more spaced and spooked than the original. Shackleton's dream liturgy fully unfolds an eerie, garbled sublimity, a kind of black-magic plainsong.



Actress Rainy Dub
The implacable, alien Son Of Sleng Teng a beast of of a tune, lumbering and snuffling, one-of-a-kind bleeping, buzzing, knocking, dripping, reverberating... and unresolved in nine minutes.



Pinch And Shackleton
The two dubstep pioneers at the top of their game. Truly an album, the music is multi-levelled dark as anything at times, but engrossingly varied and emotionally shaded, always on the move.



Lee Perry The Return Of Pipecock Jackxon
Originally released in 1980: the final work to emerge from the Black Ark studio, before its permanent destruction, crossing the soundworld of Roast Fish Collie Weed And Cornbread into new hybrids.



Theo Parrish, Burnt Friedman Meet Mancingelani And Zinja Hlungwani
TP's is an uglier-than-ugly edit, with no let-up for thirteen minutes, layered and shot with synth washes, bleeps and alarms, galloping drums, clattering percussion; Burnt's mix is more chilled, lithe, dubwise.



Ricardo Villalobos - Max Loderbauer, Peverelist Meet Tshetsha Boys
A bobbing, minimal groover from the Berlin corner, dug-in and funked-up over ten minutes; and icily original, top-dog work from Pev, tethered between a kind of arrested Highlife and a Detroit breakout.



Oni Ayhun, Anthony Shake Shakir Meet Shangaan Electro And BBC
Fiercely brilliant, slashing, whooping dance music from Oni all-original, no samples and a stonking Detroit thumper from the master.



Mark Ernestus Meets BBC
The first in our series of Shangaan homages. A metronomic, clicking beat to drive you crazy; a kind of Motorik lash dubwise, midrange; moody strings. Wry, driving, one-of-a-kind genius from the Berliner.



Tiyiselani Vomaseve EP
Two EPs of storming, squinty Shangaan Electro to herald the European tour of Tiyiselani, the Tshetshas and producer Dog, in the summer of 2011.
