There is something of a electronic renaissance going on in South Africa
and okmalumkoolkat is one of the artists heavily involved. Not by any
means new to the game, his earlier stuff with dirty paraffin set a
pioneering sound in the electronic music scene in South Africa.
Okmalumkoolkat though is an even more exciting concept.His rap sound is conflated
with electronic music and kwaito topped with bizarre lyrics.
Over the last five years he’s been consistently displaying a certain
kind of innovation which i feel represents the future of Africa’s
electronic music scene. His most recent EP “Holy Ghost” is just excellent ; of course!
what more can you expect from producers like Cid Rim? Tracks like
“Allblackblackkat” and “Holy Oxygen” are worth checking out.
