About the show
Playing tracks by
Mr Gelatine , Mr Glide , Maga Bo, The Middle East, Mix n Blend and more.
Continuing our coverage from South Africa, GS023 takes in Cape Town and the finest label in the city, African Dope.
We spoke to co-founder Roach in his office (complete with enviable view of Table Mountain), as well as the latest signing to the label, Mix n Blend, in their studio on top of the excellent Fiction bar and club.
Roach discusses the development of the label in conjuction with the development of the music scene in Cape Town as we play tracks from the labels back catalogue. Mix n Blend tell us about how they approached recording their debut album on a label they have grown up with.
To end the show this week we have a contender for Tom's favourite track of the year, 'Blood' by Australia's The Middle East.
