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.
THE SURVIVALS - The Big Mechanics (1989)
Producer: AT 'Rubber' Khoza
Quality bubblegum tunes from the former backing band of Ntombi Ndaba, (together known as Ntombi & Survival) on the Soweto label Anneko. Funky basslines hold it all together, best on tracks like 'Izimpukane' (flies) and 'Hot Stuff'.
