Compilation of the month
Various 'Africa Gets Physical' (Get Physical)
The South African house scene has been growing in stature recently, thanks to the unique spin it puts on the house sound we love. Is it the climate that gives their productions a distinctive airy feel? Mixed by Ryan Murgatroyd, this comp for Get Physical contains some freshly commissioned tracks as well as older gems. Murgatroyd’s ‘Kanna’ has joyous piano, sweeping pads and grounded bass, while the sturdy Loco Dice remix of Black Coffee (one of the leading lights of South African house) is also included. The second half of the mix, meanwhile, features impressive contributions from new names such as Floyd Lavine, Bruce Loko and Gumzscene, proving that the scene’s future is in safe hands.
