Earlier this month, Get Physical released an all-South African compilation, both produced and mixed by South African artists. This release not only showcases many talented artists in the country, but also brings a sense of perspective of how much attention South Africa is garnering around the world.
The compilation features the likes of Crazy White Boy, Blanka Mazimela, Ryan Murgatroyd, Thor Rixon, Bruce Loko and Jazzuelle, and this month, they will be taking this star studded lineup—as well as German artist Roland Leesker—across the country to play four exclusive Get Physical Music Africa showcases.
Taking place on March 11th, 12th, 18th and 19th, the tour will feature at Rands and We Love Summer in Cape Town, It’s Personal Picnic in Johannesburg and Disoufeng Pub in Soweto—covering four unique scenes within South Africa.
Off the back of what is already being hailed as one of the most important dance music compilations to have come out of South Africa in the last 5 years, this tour stands as a new benchmark for local producers. With one of the biggest dance music labels in the world behind this project, it is an exciting time for SA acts and a sign of things to come in the 2017/2018 season.
Africa Gets Physical Vol. 1 is available from Beatport.
