DJ Spoko – Batauweng

Dispatch from South Africa today. Atteridgeville (a township west of Pretoria to you uneducated lot) native DJ Spoko was one of the geniuses (genii?) behind DJ Mujava’s ‘Township Funk’ and he’s now making the crossover journey himself with his upcoming EP on True Panther, ‘Ghost Town’.

Two tracks have seen the light of YouTube recently, and they showcase different shades of his self-proclaimed ‘bacardi house’. ‘Cucumba’ is a catchy, percussion-led foot shuffler, whilst ‘Batauweng’ is a more layered house track with vocals and horn stabs thrown into the mix. We love ‘em both.

And we could NEVER pass up an opportunity to post South African house’s breakout anthem. Such an ear-worm.
