Podcast — Ghost Man: DJ Spoko’s Bacardi House

DJ Spoko, the South African producer behind some of the country’s (and maybe the continent’s) wildest electronic sounds, has long been something of a mystery. Aside from a few scattered production credits, a handful of YouTube videos, and one solitary EP, it was pretty much impossible to hear the guy. That’s why we jumped at the chance to interview Spoko about his new album, War God, which features a full 20 tracks of “pure disease–and pure love.” Spoko told us his story, everything from taxi-driving gangsters and clubs filled with Bacardi to the presence of the divine via Fruity Loops 1.1. We’ll hear that, plus some massive cuts from his discography.
