Awesome Tapes from Africa have a real treat in store for the next re-issue on thei in-house label (excuse the pun), and it’s due for a November release. Originally known (by his real name) as Eric Kobane, ‘Penny Penny’ was apparently one of 68 children from a family with 17 wives who went on to be a South African House legend. You can read more about him either in this fantastic introduction to the release by Fact magazine, or over at the ’27 Leggies’ Tsonga Disco blog.
You can now hear another track from the forthcoming LP. Entitled ‘Dance Khomela’, it’s bringing a much higher tempo than ‘Shichangani’ whilst ensuring the excessive positivity associated with 90’s house music remains.
