I’m still recovering from ten days in Austin. Before it’s out of sight, out of mind catch some pics from Austin. The-Dream. Rick Ross. Danny Brown. Spoek Mathambo. Friends.
I met Spoek Mathambo for the first time in South Africa during the World Cup. After numerous emails about an amazing mix he created for the NSW X FADER ‘Pitch Perfect’ series, he quickly became one of my favorite people. After quite the mix up with a car service to get him and his band to FTC Soweto for a performance on the roof, he showed up cheerful and excited after catching his own cab. I was sold.
Blood Orange just might be my favorite act of SXSW. I’ve listened to his album, ‘Coastal Grooves’ on repeat ever since.
