Spoek Mathambo Signs to Sub Pop, Offers Free Download
Word has come that South African rapper/producer/DJ/all-around musical globetrotter Spoek Mathambo has penned a deal with the Sub Pop label and is readying a new digital-only EP, Put Some Red On It, slated to be the first release to result from the new partnership. Furthermore, the good folks at Sub Pop have offered up the EP's title track, a brimming slice of futuristic boom-bap co-produced with current Copenhagen resident CHLLNGR, for free download. You'll find that in the widget below, along with the full tracklist for the EP (scheduled for a late July release), which includes four remixes from some like-minded producers. Rumor also has it that Mathambo is in the midst of preparing a full-length to come out some time in the not-too-distant future on his new label, ensuring there's no need to worry about a shortage of Afro-futuristic raps anytime soon.
