This 10 track album from South African producer and DJ, Richard the Third, imagines a sonic landscape where the beats and rhythms of kwaito, dubstep, house, hip-hop and everything in between, get thrown down in a mix of celebration, ego and pensive identity crisis.

South African producer and DJ, Richard the Third, has earned his beats and bass stripes over the years. Having started as a hip-hop producer for emcees such as Tumi (from the Volume) and Hymphatic Tabs, he began his adventures through the rise of local electronic music in South Africa.

This culminated in his work with Spoek Mathambo, touring the States, Europe and South America playing with Spoek’s live band, after producing the bulk of the album Mshini Wam released by BBE.

His current project is a solo album that features collaborations with kwaito acts such as the Ruffest, femme-fatale singers such as Zaki Ibrahim and Nonku Phiri, and experimental hip-hop crew Voicetag, alongside a gang of other local artists.
