Sandy B - Amajovi Jovi / 12"
Durban producer Sandy B is a giant of the Kwaito scene. Even so, his post-Apartheid set Amajovi Jovi - considered by many diggers to be one of the defining releases in the history of the distinctively South African style - has long been impossible to find. Rumour has it that even Sandy B doesn't own a copy of the original cassette. Happily, the team behind Invisible City Editions managed to find one and here give the set its first official vinyl issue. It's a brilliant set, all told, full of "township party music" that joins the dots between rolling U.S house, bottom-end heavy hip-hop, native zulu rap and the kind of sparkling, colourful synths that were once a hallmark of South African bubblegum pop.
