Hola mpinji! This is AFROSYNTH, the realest African selection . . . We're ending 2013 with a special mix - REGGAE MANIA - and some fresh releases by the likes of DJ NATANO, PETER PADI, SISTER COOL and plenty more. Last month we brought you Zimbabwean act CALTON SOUNDS, bubblegum from MAFIKA and DENNIS & THE WHIZZ KIDS, traditional grooves from IHASHE ELIMHLOPHE and SHOES LACES, Afro-grooves from Malian griot KASSE MADY, keyboard fiend REX RABANYE and more.
MarcAlex took the local scene by storm with their fresh Eurobeat-inspired sound. Following the massive Boys Be Boys (1990) and their self-titled 1988 debut, Yeah features the hit 'Never Never', backed by Vicky Sampson, Caroline Fassie and Dolly Setiloane, while 'Positive' features the voice of their father. The brothers Rantseli's other albums were Waking Up (1992) and Enjoy (1995) (Mojapelo 2008:131). The duo recently came back with a double-album greatest hits compilation.
