SPOEK MATHAMBO (ZA)

Saturday 07.07.12 - 16:00 - Cosmopol

Imagine an acid trip in Soweto, Johannesburg after midnight, translated into music. That's just about the sound of Mathambo.

With a grimy mix of electro, rap, South African house and dystopian bass music –genreless 'township tech' he calls it himself – this dark hip hop prince will soon become a new name on the global guerilla pop scene, led especially by M.I.A.

Spoek Mathambo is claustrophobic but danceable midnight music, filled with robotic beats and rough ghetto sounds.

Label: Sub Pop / Target Distribution

Band schedule is ready in May

Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.

We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
