Hey man I really like that pic, it’s kinda like Tom Waitsian!
Our mate Greg/Dexterity previously covered this dude back HERE.
I’m covering him this time because African Dope Records just told me that they are giving away a new free track.
Here’s what they say:
The free track is a taster of his upcoming debut album (which will be available in the African Dope Store in good time :-)
If you don’t know Mr.Sakitumi, here’s the name drop :-)
Mr. Sakitumi has played a whole-wide-world of instruments, (from drums, through guitar, past double-bass, and far beyond) in some of the most reputable acts in South Africa, including Krushed & Sorted, Max Normal, LARK, Goldfish, Freshly Ground, Battery 9, Closet Snare, Godessa, Gazelle and Teba. He’s played at festivals like: Pukkelpop (Belgium), Lowlands (Netherlands), Face fest (Finland) and Oppikoppi (South Africa). Basically.. He’s the sh*t :)
His music is in the style of beats and breaks, having been influenced by the likes of Ninja Tune, DJ Krush, Bonobo, RJD2 and DJ Shadow. The man recently returned from a European tour alongside EJ von Lyrik, and he’s planning another one for next August.
We’ll let you know the progress on the full album, till then, if you need evidence of the extent of his mad, mad skillys; make sure to check out this video of the man himself performing his track Franklinstein.
