Mark van Dijk I had only listened to this album on crappy computerspeakers. I recieved the vinyl today and played it on a proper stereo. What a joy! I truely love this album. The beats are heavy but more importantly creative! I reminds me of some of Tricky's best work, but with a twist that a suspect is uniquely south african. Favorite track: The Son's Raise.

about

At a time when the frontiers between hip hop, IDM, EDM and bass music are dissolving into a musical magma where new directions constantly emerge, Cape Town Effects presents a vision of the sound of tomorrow, a true mash-up of hip hop, dub, electronica, dubstep, trap and other influences.

The project aims to create an original sound on to which the best emcees from Cape Town - who have nothing to envy from their European or American counterparts - will lay down uncompromising rhymes that contain sharp observations with local and global resonance.

Also contains 'Mother City Blues', a documentary by Arno Bitschy that is a portrait of Cape Town, South Africa's Mother City. It shows the perspective of three men, three rappers and their city. Three perspectives full of anger, love, disillusion and hope. The blues of those who carry the heavy burden of the past.
