Shangaan - Old and New




Sometimes i spend hours on youtube just burrowing through all of the videos, there are times when i stop and realise i have to stop and that i should have gone to bed two hours ago, but sometimes i find stuff like this









It seems as though Shangaan is really taking off, Eddie Stats has mentioned it not once but twice in recent weeks. Apparently Outside Music's Wills Glasspiegel plans to release some in the near future, that will sit very nicely next to all Kwaito comps which help us to actually hear decent versions of this and not to have to make do with youtube clips.


Vamanos' mate Mo, one of the Secousse Sound System, kindly sent over some old Shangaan mp3s, check this one by Nozinja below


Nozinja - N'wagezani



I'm really hoping somebody out there will create some supermix of sped up beats that takes in Juke, Funana, Bubu, Shangaan and a whole heap of other stuff. When Salem posted a Juke mix on XXJFG a while back they even managed to fit some Gabber in there...

Not to try and self-promote over here but my new mix is pretty much that. Kwaito, bubbling, kuduro juke, footwork, logobi, kawina all pretty fast.

Also, I wouldn't champion Salem for including gabber in that mix, but that's just my taste I hate that stuff!
