Via Tom Devriendt: In case you haven’t seen this yet, Shook Magazine (the Wax Poetics of  the British cultural set) has a feature on postapartheid music culture in its latest issues. A mix of the usual suspects with some history and breakthrough artists and performers thrown: These include house and kwaito’s top producers, Spoek Mathambo, Chimurenga Magazine and the Pan African Space Station festival. In some ways it overlaps with the Dazed&Confused issue on South Africa that came out two months ago but with a less Johannesburg-centric focus, no obligatory Die Antwoord spread, and this bonus: BLK JKS hangs out with guitar giant Dr. Phillip ‘Malombo’ Tabane. You can also read an interview with the writer Sandile Dikeni as well as listen to some new South African house and kwaito sounds on the Snook website.
