Two electronic mixtapes in one day. Time for a think piece on over saturation? Not quite yet. Beauty and the Beats Vol. 1 is the mixtape form DRK&LVLY Records that we reported about yesterday. It has now dropped and it boasts an exceptional roster from all around the country: The Watermark High, Seafood, Veranda Panda, Maramza, Phizicist, Card on Spokes, Hawkword, Cutting Gems, Wildebeats, Slabofmisuse and Dank.
That’s quite a line-up.
These compilations are important for the obvious exposure it gives to local artists, but also to showcase the abundance of talent that exists in our country. There is a serious crop of talented and exciting electronic musicians in South Africa who together form a vibrant and hugely exciting scene unto themselves, and who are genuinely worth making noise about and supporting.
You can download for free and listen to the compilation below. The first event in this series takes place at Radar advertising agency tonight, starting at 7PM, with entrance free before 9PM. There after it will cost R50 to get in. Card On Spokes will be headlining and it’s sure to be an unmissable event.
