Free New Track & Live UK Spot (best before end: 3/10/11) )
Sub Pop recently signed this funky fresh South African rapper called Spoek Mathombo, and are offering his first EP "put some red on it" (featuring a Shabazz Palaces remix with ish's trademark tasteful handclaps) as a free download for one week only so visit The Fader's website to get yours. The whole LP is class - the originals were produced by this Danish producer called CHLLNGR from my new home Copenhagen.
as part of their uk visit, sp also turned up at the bbc studios for lauren laverne's show on bbc 6 music (a radio station) where they performed live versions of free press and curl and are you... can you... were you.. felt interspersed with banal questions from the host. check it here, noting that if you're outside the uk you can't listen to the 10 minute sp clip but can always just listen to the whole 3 hour show and skip to the 1 hour 40 min mark. it's only available for 6 days longer.
