The Windies are all Doped Out


This speaks for itself:

From: Steven Segerman

Subject: African Dope Duo Fail To Stop Windies Getting Krushed And Sorted By Proteas

A career-best spell from Ryan McLaren bowled South Africa to a 13-run victory in the first of two Twenty20 Internationals against the West Indies on Wednesday.

This despite the best efforts of the legendary Cape Town indie music duo, Fletcher and Roach, whose combined efforts were not sufficient to stop the Proteas grabbing a victory in the first of the Twenty20 internationals against the Caribbean criketers. Windies Wicketkeeper Fletcher was responsible for 4 dismissals, and bowler Roach took two wickets.

The African Dope duo then combined to get rid of the dangerous Proteas player Johan Botha - the scorecard reads:

J Botha - Caught Fletcher Bowled Roach - 0

NEW Mix n Blend EP


African Dope’s latest offering “Mix n Blend - Look Mom No Hands Remixes Volume 1” is available in the Dope Shop and online stores as of right now.

It’s a 4 track EP of collaborations with the bee’s knees of the South African electronic scene coming together to produce some bass-bin inspired remixes of tracks off of the original double-SAMA nominated debut album ‘Look Mom No Hands’ (also in online stores).

The aforementioned knees of the bee are:

Fletcher (co-founder of African Dope)
Liver (electronic entrepreneur)
Hyphen & SFR (at the heart and soul of local Drum n Bass and Dubstep)
Bioscope (Twelv and Richard the Third, a brotherly team of electronic experimenters)

Track 1 - Full Ahead (Fletcher’s Ragga Remix)
Track 2 - Outta Town (Hyphen & SFR’s Dubstep Remix)
Track 3 - Shall We Swing (Liver’s Electro Remix)
Track 4 - Sik Wid It (Bioscope’s Glitch/Dubstep Remix)

You can get ‘Look Mom No Hands Remixes Volume 1’ alone for R40 (aka 40 bones), or the remixes together with the SAMA nominated goodness ‘Look Mom No Hands’ for a discounted R130 (Excluding Postage). All of this available from our nifty online Dope Shop or from your own favourite online shop spot.

New Dope looks Fresh


We have finally completed our move from our old premises! Life is sure enough good with carpets under our feet and an air-conditioner gently flowing its goodness upon us all. Except Roach. If you’ve been trying to get in touch on our old number, we apologize (on behalf of our national telecommunications provider) that it has not been redirecting to our new number or leaving a message… In any case, here are our new details:

15 Glynville Terrace, Gardens, Cape Town is where we reside now.

Our postal address is still the same: PO BOX: 15681, Vlaeberg, 8018, Cape Town, South Africa

Our new phone number is 087 465 3013 (+2787 465 3013)

Nomination & Exclamation


African Dope Records and the South African Music Awards have crossed paths once before. That being the one sweet day when Roach lifted the Best Dance Album of the Year for African Dope Volume 1. What a moment, what a smile:)

In the 9 years since then, we’ve given up sending in nominations to the SAMA’s in the same way that we’ve given up trying to convince radio stations to play a variety of local music.

This year, it being our 10 years anniversary n all, we tried something new. We filled in the forms, paid the application money, crossed the fingers, waited for months with breath un-baited, and tie me down, Mix n Blend has been nominated in not one, but 2 categories! (Best Producer and Best Alternative English)

So, for you mathematicians out there, that means that we’ve been nominated every single time we’ve applied, and won one… so far. He he he;)

Slap me silly and call me Susanna, someone out there still knows quality when they hear it. Congratulations to Mix n Blend, and good luck for the swish awards ceremony. Leave the slops and boardshorts at home.

If you want to find out what all the hullaballoo is about, listen, download, or buy the original ‘Mix n Blend - Look Mom No Hands’ from our Dope Shop.
