LSTN: BLK JKS Craft a New Mixtape – “Africa In Your Earbuds #20″

It’s a mixtape folks! BLK JKS bring us the sounds that have been on rotation as they begin pre-production for their follow up LP to 2009’s After Robots. The mix has a unique blend of tracks ranging from the deep-bass remix of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” to the classic Talking Heads track, “This Must Be The Place.” Guitarist Mpumi Mcata, the mastermind behind the mixtape says, “It’s a kind of mix between the music one vibes to socially and the intensely personal, i.e the stuff that contributes to a human being who they are — new and old, stuff well worth visiting and revisiting, sometimes sharing isn’t overbearing.”

This mix comes to us via okayafrica. Check out the track listing below and then listen and download for FREE!
