We’ve covered Spoek Mathambo a few times before, but now, the rapper/producer who hails from South Africa has taken on another project. Joining forces with DJ Spoko, André Heldenhuys, Michael Buchanan, and Bhekisenzo Cele, Mathambo and friends have created a new supergroup called Fantasma.
Together, they’ve made a smooth and intriguing song in “Sefty Belt,” featuring vocals from New York-based artist, JOSIAHWISE IS THE SERPENTWITHFEET. The group crafts music that, according to their label, “pulls inspiration from all corners of South Africa: the sounds and spirits of townships and cities as well as the rural countryside,” and this new single is a robust reflection of that idea.
Fantasma will be releasing their debut EP, Eye of the Sun, on November 3 via Soundway Records. Listen to “Sefty Belt” below.
