Capetown's music scene is still booming., abundantly stocked with producers, artists and most importantly kids who want to dance. 
Venture out on a fantastic European tour is Sweat.X's offshoot Playdoe. The group's philosophy is to keep their hip hop light, fun and fresh, inspired by early 80s legends in the field.

Playdoe perform their last of two London gigs tonight at Play it by Ear Club with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Brooklyn's Cubic Zirconia.

Enjoy these 3 downloads to get you in the mood!

A mix from Cubic Zirconia, tracklist as follows:

cubic zirconia- i wanna freebase you
cubic zirconia- dick for a day
chase and status- eastern jam
cubic zirconia- josephine
claw- jersey shore guidos
curses ft maggie horn- the deep end
bucketheads-the bomb instrumental
cubic zirconia- the phone
tyrees- acid crash
cubic zirconia- fuck work (proper villians/ jubilee remix)
dj class ft lil jon- i'm the ish
cubic zirconia- secret bonus track

And for a treat, another mix from Orlando Doom, the man who put me on track when it comes to South African Electro...

Sooo....where the fuck have I been?!

Chaz Jankel.
I'm really really really sorry I didn't find out about you earlier.
You've been around since the late 70's/80's, have been described as a "synthesizer auteur" and you are STILL in the public ear, getting remixed by dudes like Todd Terje (FAVE!) and releasing new material. You even did the soundtrack for Making Mr. Right.

I'm going to try and track down as much of the good stuff as I can Mr. Jankel.

Again, my apologies for not having addressed you sooner.

just felt right...

A smouldering jazzy tune from Food of the Gods, a little ensemble that is featuring the lead singer lady from Cibo Matto. Spooky sexy lady vocals over a splashy snare.

Just steamy....

Le Le is a project by the Dutch artists P. FabergĂ©, Piet Parra and Rimeroni Vumani. The number of creative side projects these guys are involved in is immense. Lele fall somewhere in the euro-pop porn electro experimental ghetto tech category. The deep bass and easy lyrics of tracks like Disco Vraiment lend well to dirty dancing and emphatic sing-alongs. Just wish I could add a little vocal interlude in the middle somewhere to make it a real winner. Remix please.

Lele - Disco Vraiment

As well, their most well known track caught the eye of Audioporno remixer Terry Lynn.  He gifted us with the BREAKFAST remix, which you probably already have. If not, enjoy!
