  • Moxyland the Soundtrack almost ready...

    3 Jul 2008, 16:06 by djlarry

    The official Moxyland The Soundtrack is a creative collaboration, compiled and selekta’d by African Dope’s HoneyB and author Lauren Beukes to complement Lauren's futuristic urban thriller, Moxyland (Jacana 2008).

    The compilation works as a showcase of just some of the brilliant tracks in African Dope Publishing’s catalogue.

    Its an ill-bient mash with a distinctly flavour and a dark, gritty, futuristic edge to reflect the mood of the book, mastered by Dope’s Fletcher aka DJ Dope and featuring artists like The Tone Deaf Junkies, Taxi Violence, damn right, The Real Estate Agents, Mix n Blend, DANK, Mr Gelatine and Jacob Israel.

    The Album will be available on CD, and in digital and mobile forms from a variety of outlets around the planet, and will also be available from our online shop and selected outlets as a CD/Book bundle.

    Launch parties will be announced shortly in Cape Town and Jozi (and maybe other places if you beg convincingly enough!)

    Album release date set for 7th July 2008 - watch this space!
