Little Dragon Went To South Africa

It goes without saying that House music in South Africa is a big deal. It has featured on these very pages a few times – Drew Cool’s Mzansi Unearthed series being perhaps the most comprehensive example, and the forthcoming Awesome Tapes from Africa release is a highly anticipated re-issue of Penny Penny’s ‘Shaka Bundu’ LP.

The latest exponent of the countries fascination with all things house are Little Dragon. As well as working on some new material, they have found the time to put together this selection of kwaito, SA house, and 90’s jams. There is a track list below, but that might not mean much to most people. The best thing to do is press play, and enjoy this interpretation of a hugely underrated scene.
