The role Richard 'Nozinja' Mthetwa has played in the emergence of Sowetan music Shangaan Electro was first documented on that superb Honest Jon's compilation back in 2011. He is by all accounts a bit of a star so a round of applause to Warp for securing a fine album from Nozinja in the shape of Nozinja Lodge. Arriving soon after Mthewa collaborated with Tessela, this ten track album comes across as a slightly more polished take on the frenetic sound of Shangaan Electro, yet the core elements remain intact. High pitched vocals sourced from the community of Shangaan artists meet skipping lo-fi drum constructions and deliciously sweet melodies. An album to document and dominate the sunshine months.
