Future Sounds Of Mzansi is a documentary by Spoek Mathambo and Lebogang Rasethaba about South African electronic music, how it has developed and where it is headed.
We’ve been keeping our eye on it, having seen the trailer a while ago, and a couple of screening dates (mostly in other countries), but with no solid, accessible destination to actually watch it. That is, until now.
Yesterday, Thump, (a sub-brand of Noisey and Vice) premiered the the first part of the documentary, which will be released through their platform in 3 instalments.
Have a look at the first part, which features absolute heavyweights of South African electronic music Black Coffee, DJ Spoko, Mujava, Culoe De Song, Felix Laband, Aero Manyelo, Okmalumkoolkat, the founders of African Dope and a whole lot more.
