V.O, Mashisa Dub, 1990

Looking ahead to the get together this Saturday, I’m picking tunes this week that will definitely be aired at Ray’s Bar on the 17th…

This record marks a crossover from the bubblegum pop that was big in S.A in the late 80s, and the beginnings of what would become Kwaito - a slo-mo and tougher house sound. The fusion in this case combines an unstoppable bouncy bassline and shouted vocal chants to devastating effect.
