It's your boys Esau Mwamwaya and Radiocliquot in Pitchfork with an 8.6!!!
Along with boldface names like MIA, Santogold, Vampire Weekend and Architecture In Helsinki, BLK JKS get a shout too:
Once you get through the indie-guarded gates, Mwamwaya and Radioclit are open here to everything from South Africa's marabi and kwaito music to Hans Zimmer scores to French and American hip-hop to Michael Jackson-- and in most cases, it's the tracks that lean furthest away from the familiar that work best. The regal "Sister Betina", BLK JKS collaboration "Salota", and Radioclit productions "Funa Funa" and "Kada Manja" are as immediately likable as the rest of the mix.Check out for more TVB x BLK JKS collabs in 2009...and 2010 as Malawi and South Africa make their way to the World Cup!
For now, well done gents and respect for sharing "the best new music" with the world
for free. Here's "Salota" on reload. And REWIND!!!
