Core Wreckah - Ngoan'a Nts'oana [a teaser]

Peace to all! We've been holding onto this piece of music for a while, but finally decided to post if after Core Wreckah gave us the go-ahead.

The song is called 'Ngoan'a Nts'oana', produced by Dim Light. We have it on good authority that Core is working towards a fully-fledged project to be released towards the end of the year. We shall keep you updated.


This is not Sesotho funk. This is not mountain pop. This is hardcore hip-hop delivered with a gutteral growl akin to the style which has been perfected by the long-standing tradition of Basotho freestyle rappers (liroki), and replete with call-and-response chants which have become a staple of Basotho music.

Isosceles - The Untitled EP

Peace to all! We got the opportunity to work on an EP with a Lesotho-based emcee called Isosceles this past June, and it was quite an experience. The five-track compilation of songs was completed in little under a week, and features production from Cymptom, Nutz, as well as Raymo.


Isosceles is part of the new breed of Lesotho-based emcees who are driven by a desire to break the stereotype of their country always being over-looked in social and cultural circles on the global stage. Seeing themselves as equal to anyone else in the world, this breed is intent on making a mark that shall be felt way beyond the confines of their immediate environment.
Please head over to our bandcamp page to either stream and/or download the EP. In the meantime, you can just stream this tune, featuring Core Wreckah, and produced by Cymptom.
