NGOMA 10 - Umlilo

NGOMA 10 - Umlilo

Playing tracks by

DJ Killer, Big Nuz, DJ Clock ft. Big Nuz, Tzozo & Sox, Zola, TKZee and more.

Umlilo is "fire" in Zulu, and this mix takes us back to the Dirty South for a scorching ride through raw township sound. Exchanging smooth for ruff, Umlilo focuses on the connection between Ghetto Rap and current Electro, between modern SA House and its Kwaito roots.

Futurism in Africa never disconnected from the body: sound design does not become a solipsistic end in itself (even though every timber and texture is perfection itslef); song form stays 100% intact in the electronic club music format; and the beats never bang on aimless and without purpose — robust machine groove reinterprets but absolutely incarnates the magic and essence of timeless rhythmic tradition.

well crafted mix, contains some serious bombs. check "kuyafiwa" after 53:00 and it is followed by one highlight after the other. powerful mandela speech samples and a sweet outro. thumbs up!
