Spoek Mathambo – Mixtape + Video Game
Back to the future with South African Rapper Spoek Mathambo! As a tribute to his birth year he presents us a full album mixtape called “Escape from ’85″ homaging Madonna, Prince, Queen, to name a few. The free download is accompanied by a trashy arcade inspired 2D video game – don’t miss the chance to shoot David Hasselhoff! Big fun!
“I picked some of my favourite pop and dance songs from ’85… mostly western ones with some gems from South Africa… to see how far we could go whilst retaining the glitter and cowbell fun of the 80s. In general it was a great time for the beginnings of house and techno, innovations in hip-hop, pop… I definitely spent a loooooot of time as a kid playing games from Commodore68, to Golden China, Nintendo, Sega… we put in a lot of shifts. That was probably my first link to all night partying… staying up all night with my cousin a bunch of sweets trying to finish a game. Game rave.”
The video game is crafted byRamJam guys from Brighton. One level for each song, so grab a big bag of sweets and play it down.
