On 'Sebenza', meaning ‘work’ in the Zulu language, South Africa meets South London as the LV trio of producers hook up with three of their favourite South African MCs, Okmalumkoolkat from Dirty Paraffin, Spoek Mathambo and MC / producer duo Ruffest!

Building on the South African Kwaito rhythms hinted at on their 'Routes" album for Keysounds, "Sebenza" launches head first into the vibrant bouncy club-ready riddims from the digital soca / kuduro of title track 'Sebenza', the afro-garage of ‘Animal Prints’, the scuttling triplets of ‘DL' and ‘Limb’, the half speed grime of ‘Zulu Compurar’, the old school electro hip hop of ‘International Pansula’ and the Prince-like synth melodies on closer 'Ultando Lwaka’.
