BEATS

Look, we’re going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume, just by the fact that you’ve found yourself here, that you know your music. Now maybe your current playlist is heat, or maybe you’re packing one or 2 good tracks, but the rest of your library leaves you in a cold sweat when someone hands you the aux. What if we told you that we could end those anxious times at a braai when you can’t move away from the speakers, in case iTunes shuffle does you dirty. The days of having to hide in the next room because you don’t want to be around when some oke shouts, “Yerr, but this song is jut” and proceeds to throw your phone in the pool, while you watch it sink rather than claim responsibility for that mild nonsense that was coming out the speakers.

We like to keep it gangster, but we’ll have your back for any occasion. From the dirtiest Deep House and Drum n Bass to that red robot, low riding Hip-Hop. Of course all that tropical stuff with flutes and saxophones will find it’s way onto here aswell. So scroll down and enjoy, and beef up that pap playlist you’ve been spinning lately.
