Mixtape #015: Africa

Download: sendspace

Africa is the disco alter ego of Scottish-born producer Graham Peel. He spends most of his time trawling through the plethora of obscure Russian tinyurls in slim hope to scavenge a rare 320kpbs rip of an unheard disco classic. He’s true to the avid hunter aesthetic, echoing the plethora of disco purists that came before him, but his record stores have been replaced by dead links and rapidshare search engines. Everything found ends up on mixes (such as the one you can download here) or on his new blog Witty Banter — soon to be essential reading — where he soundtracks his twenty-something apathy perfectly with a particular “Song du jour”.
