Get yourselves over to Spoek Mathambo’s website where the producer / singer-songwriter /rapper we all know and love has released Escape From ‘85 – a mixtape of 12 tracks inspired by the year of his birth – as a FREE download.
If you’re trying to download this at the office, you can listen on the soundcloud til you get home.
... but wait. Escape From ’85 isn’t just a mixtape – the man who brought you THIS video would never do anything so simple. It’s also a 1980s style video game – featuring the tracks across eleven levels and encounters with iconic favourites Mr T, Grace Jones and Ghostbuster’s Stay Puft Marshmallow Man among others.
An immersive experience, Escape From ‘85 celebrates the music and culture of the 1980s. Of course there are appearances by fellow Africa Express train passengers Terri Walker and Seye, and the off-the-wall ‘is this really real?’ stylings of the inimitable Remi Kabaka.
