Zoo City Soundtrack (Compiled in Ape Town :-)


Honey B has teamed up with esteemed South African novelist Lauren Beukes once again to create the soundtrack for Lauren’s latest and craziest offering, “Zoo City”. This follows the international success of their first novel / soundtrack collaboration on the book “Moxyland”.

The fact that Lauren has chosen to collaborate with African Dope on her two latest projects speaks to the left-field, adventurous and unshackled nature of her writing. Check out the Zoo City soundtrack in our freshly upgraded online Dope Store, and get the novel by clicking this link.

Shipping the Dopeness to Korea


African Dope is now on sale in Asia!

At long last we’ve made a deal with Feel Music, a renowned independent label/distributor based in Seoul, Korea.

All the Dopeness that we’ve released during our 10 years in business are being distributed by Feel Music in a deal encompassing digital distribution to all major and indie Korean online and mobile stores, sync licensing and sub-publishing for the Korean territory.

Click below to find out how to spell ‘Mix n Blend - Look Mom No Hands’ in Korean!!


This deal comes after we met Feel Music at Midem 2010, following a long search for the right partner in Korea.

Says Roach – “We are delighted to finally have some action in the Far East, and with such a cool partner as Feel Music. Korea is a really interesting market – almost completely digital with high levels of legal consumption [of music, of course], an open-minded population and a vibrant local industry”.

We be a movin’ on up… to the Far East side.

Dopeness at the Grahastown Festival - Sound Kiln II


The country is slipping into a festival frame of mind at a dizzying pace as the World Cup rears its bitter-sweet head. As much as we are all looking forward to the feast of football that awaits us, having a soccer ball bounce across the screen during a TV ad for cheap blankets is a sight that few of us will miss once this sincerely glorious month has passed us by.

As such, African Dope has no intention of including any soccer balls or football references in the branding of our second visit to the Sound Kiln at 3 Chimneys Farm during this year’s Grahamstown Arts Festival. (Thurdsday 24th - Sunday 27th June)

Yes, the party at which the steady breakdown of DJ’s and MC’s physical and mental health was documented on film last year is back for another three nights of electronic eye-gouging! Nothing soccer-ish about that is there?

Acts playing at Sound Kiln include: Fletcher, Mix n Blend, Sibot, Spekta, Jam Jar, Biorythm, The Skragg and many, many more over the three nights!

Check out the event page on Facebook to get the run down and the directions. You can buy your tickets now from Computicket (They go from R80 for one day to R240 for the full three days).

If you’re not around there during the time.. then Get There!

Peace to ya,
African Dope
