Mpharanyana & The Peddler's




Freak Out (with Botsotso)

Disco (Jamie 3:26 extended edit)

First ever official re-release of these 1979 South African disco / funk recordings backed by a devastating extended edit of ‘Disco’ courtesy of Amsterdam-based DJ and producer Jamie 3:26. Jacob ‘Mpharanyana’ Radebe was one of South Africa’s greatest ever musicians, releasing a canon of legendary soul, jazz and disco albums before his untimely death in August 1979 at the age of just twenty-nine.

Here, Kalita select his highly sought-after disco and funk recordings both selected from his 1979 invisible final album, ‘Hela Ngwanana’, re-releasing them for the first time in forty years. Including Paul Simon and Herbie Hancock session musician Bakithi Kumalo on bass and Themba Mokena of Dick Khoza ‘Chapita’ fame on lead guitar, the recordings feature some of the country’s top contemporary musicians joining forces to glorious effect.
