18/05/16Daniel Haaksman Airs New Music Video Starring Spoek Mathambo

After receiving manifold global praise for his latest full-length album "African Fabrics", modern bass music tastemaker Daniel Haaksman (listen to our interview with him if you slept on it) just released the music video to his upcoming feel-good single "Akabongi", starring the prolific South African rapper Spoek Mathambo on a cover of the Soul Brothers' mid-90s classic pop hit. The clip, directed by Chris Kets features original pantsula dancing, popping, locking, hat-juggling and a whole bunch of second or possibly third hand electronics in a glitchy composition, offering a modern glimpse of the everyday 'Joburg' hustle as well as Zulu lyrics by Mr. Mathambo. Ch-ch-check it out!
