Today we welcome our third guest mix selection - this time from DJ Okapi.
Taking the concept of digging to the next level, the DJ, journalist and collector has accumulated hundreds of rare South African records, sharing his bounty through his cult blog, Afro-Synth and wheeling them around the globe as a touring DJ.
Preserving material that is far from the country’s typically known fare, he’s uncovered everything from the lesser known sounds of maskandi to synth-fuelled 80s disco-funk known as ‘bubblegum’ and the unique house-inspired ‘kwaito’ grooves of the early 90s. An extensive UK tour is scheduled for November with an initial pit-stop here at Subcity Radio’s chOOn!! Towers!12:00 - 14:30
