    Awesome Tapes From Africa releases another shining example (following Teno Afrika's 'Amapiano Selections') of 'amapiano' music from South Africa from young star, DJ Black Low. The past five years have seen this rapidly expanding dance music movement born in the townships of the country’s Gauteng province, that's evolved from an underground sound to a nationwide mainstream staple. Essential release!
