Anyway, if you’re still up for going out, beat smith Tenderlonious is playing the Wigwam basement later tonight. Word is it’s the last ever Sim Simma in that space, they’re hooking up with the All City gang on it. More on Tenderlonious and the 22a camp here.

Listen To Anno Stamm.

Fresh goods from the All City camp, who are keeping up a relentless release schedule.  This time it’s a Berlin based artist that knocked out a cerebral set of IDM, grime and whatever you can jam in between (including Venetian Snares…) in the Turk’s Head several months ago. This round sees them hawking a 12-inch called No One Else containing a preview of album tracks by the man behind the alias.  Lars … Read More

Bastards. They sent us this power-soca anthem with a note saying its playing somewhere every ten minutes in Tobago at the moment. Today and tomorrow are the two biggest days of the season, leading … Read More

Listen To DJ Spoko.

In Blog by DiscotagLeave a Comment

Special Edition EP by DJ Spoko Remember a millions years ago, there was an absolute blow up track called Township Funk by DJ Mujava? One that riddled dancefloors with a propulsive pitched up hum and carnival drum patterns. And then no more? Well, DJ Spoko is one of the earliest exponents of this hyped up South African kwaito sound and has been putting out a steady stream of releases over the … Read More
