DJ Doom - Adelaide Deep

a challenger arises. DJ Doom from Adelaide, Australia criticized my selection on NGOMA2 for being too obvious and lazy, and in response, has made a short Afro and Africanized house mix, showing us his approach to this sound.

and it is indeed lush -- a different feel from NGOMA2 entirely.

[QUOTE]"Was gonna end it on 'Seasons' but I didn't wanna get accused of anthem bashing, I actually left the room to put the kettle on but changed my mind at the last minute as I wanted to end on a positive tip, cos Zhao - its all love out here

100% live - No Headphones, 100% unplanned / unrehearsed / unedited. Enjoy!"[/QUOTE]

bigup Doom for this great mix, and thanks for keeping me on my toes. it's true, music is not competitive sports; but none the less, the only thing left for me to do now is rise to the occasion, and deliver a response to the response... :D

Hey man, a friend posted your myspace link to me, haven't been able to download mixes yet because of poor bandwidth here is Cape Town. Anyway your tracklist sound awesome.

I do very similar stuff, and run a club in Scotland, although I am in South Africa for the summer. We should talk for sure about you coming to the UK.

Check this set i did in Gugulethu township, CT - kwaito, afro-house etc. Its heavilly edited to trim it down. Played it out at legendery sunday session Mzoli's.

Astroboy Live @ Mzoli's, Gugulethu, Capetown:

Looking forward to hearing your mixtapes.
