SPOEK MATHAMBO

SOUTH AFRICA |

.

We caved in yesterday and bought this album just because of the following song!!…
Control is  a “darkwave township house” cover of the Joy Division classic She’s Lost Control.

Its the fourth single to be taken from South African producer/DJ Spoek Mathambo‘s album, Mshini Wam.

The excellent video was directed by the uber-talented photographer Pieter Hugo. Shot entirely in Langa (Cape Town), this video features a cast made up mainly of kids from the local dance troupe calledHappy Feet.

We think this is the coolest, most exciting, most awesome thing to come out of South Africa yet!!! – Check it out!
