Guest Mix: Will Press - Dance Afrique II

Will Press
  • On June 18, 2013

As a contributor to this here blog, I will be from time to time dropping mixes compiled by DJs and other jokers (myself included) that deserve some extra exposure. There is no better way to start than with myself. I don’t consider myself a guest here though. Anyway,  Dance Afrique II is part of my on-going Afrique series where I hunt down different sounds from around Africa and try to make a cohesive compilation, For Dance Afrique II I decided to concentrate on some more current and popular azonto, kwaito house and afrobeats with some interesting remixes to add flavour to the usual stuff we are used to listening to.Towards the end  there are some interesting derivative soukous/lingala-style tracks from P Unit and Skeat, pointing to how the genre could evolve in future… Listen out for some tracks from the  Best Of: South African House #1 post. The weird intro is from a documentary about spoken word poetry in Uganda called Somebody Clap For Me.
