Rising South African Afrotech producer “Kates lé Café” is back with a new maxi-single to hit the dancefloors to. From founding the “Kapsule Boyz” to collaborating with upcoming underground artists such as TonicVolts, Mdeeh and Dr. Sekza, Kates lé Café’s stock has risen with the amount of work he’s done. With over a decade of experience in the emerging African electronic scene and releases on numerous labels/outlets, Kates now brings the beats to Afrocentric Records with “Magandula”.
This single/EP includes two mixes of the title track as well as a reworking of the Kapsule Boyz track “Cosmic Rays,” all of which showcase his style of dark jazzy Afrotech rife with acid synth stabs and mellow chord progressions. The original mix of “Magandula” is built on earthy organic percussion loops, while its updated twin conveys a cyberpunk aesthetic; both of them carry the potent energy of ever-evolving tech house bangers. Kates lé Café’s new single is a must-listen for partygoers and dance music enthusiasts alike.
