WHY ARE YOU BLOWING MY MIND?
That’s both the name of this playlist and the feeling we get when we listen to it. Put together by Zamrock guru Calum McNaughton of SHARP-FLAT – a Cape Town-based label specialising in vinyl releases of vintage Southern African vibes and modern classics – (www.sharp-flat.com). From Zambia with the Ngozi Family, Crossbones and Mike Nyoni to Zimbabwe with Wells Fargo, Otis Waygood and New Tutenkhamen and even some SA representation care of Hugh Masekela, Xoliso and more, this fuzz funk mixtape will blow your mind.
