In Johannesburg in 1985, a baby was born. In the midst of violent oppression and early hip hop, purple reigns and Artists United Against Apartheid, 2D video games and desperate hopes, Spoek Mathambo came into the world. Today, he is a rapper, singer, designer and producer with two solid-gold albums behind him and a clutch of co-signs. His newest project, Escape from ‘85 is a letter to the year and its culture, from day-glo to despair, and comes as a computer click-em-up and a mixtape – which is co-premiering below. It’s ahead of his third album and his debut feature film: a documentary about South African electronic music, titled ‘Future Sound of Mzansi’.
