available now!


Finally - it’s here!
The long-awaited second album from that half-man-half-turntable, wizard of the wickety wickety wickety wickety wickety wickety wickety wickety wick - Sibot!

‘In With The Old’ is a testimony to the universal skills of Sibot and an exploration in new disciplines like keys and drums. With collaborations from top artists like Teba, Spoek Mathambo and Chromoscience, this here is an album so rich and so musically full that it leaves no doubt in ones mind that Sibot has found what he was born to do!

It’s large, it’s phat, it’s heavy, it’s fun, its lemon scented! It’s dope as all hell!
Proudly pressed and released independently by our brothers at Sshadoworkss!

We must warn you: this album is available in a limited edition of 500 copies only, and they’re selling like cream cakes at a fat camp!

For a little sneak-peak, a taster, a teaspoon full, a mere appetizer, follow the link for a free mp3 preview of Sibot’s ‘Strhaff Tak’ tune.


Once you’ve finished listening, pick yourselves up off the floor, wipe up the drool and get the whole album now from our ONLINE SHOP
(all major credit cards/debit cards from anywhere accepted).

Get the album at a once-off, special act-now price for only R95!!!

rolling all over the world

Since its release late last year, our very famous bunker-busting DJ mix album has been circulating the world wildly and is doing dancefloor damage wherever it lands! One Australian club owner was heard to remark recently : “Jeepers mate, if this album was a fish I’d have thrown it back in!” Back home, even mainstream radio hasn’t been able to ignore us (a first for Dope!) and listeners to 5FM’s Vinyl Frontier show in December will remember our bass-busting episode with a wry smile. (And Michelle Constant - you rock!)

Quelling rumours about our main man

Quelling rumours that our man DJ Dope has a previously unknown about, shorter-haired twin brother in town, we wish to inform his fans that nay, they are one and the same man!

It is true; DJ Dope parted ways with his now legendary serpentine head-nest and opted for an altogether more socially acceptable ‘do’. Exact reasons why he made the drastic change have not been forthcoming from the dexterous DJ, although we do know it had something to do with a hair clipper set at Christmas time, a post Christmas lunch family dare and maybe too much light beer!

Either way, if you see DJ Dope out on the town or behind the decks, do compliment him on his dashing new do!

Want a pic of the all-new-coiffured DJ Dope:  email us
