"Kaang "

Kaang is the newly christened duo comprised of SA-based artist Hlasko and his Reunion co-conspirateur, producer/deejay, Labelle. "[I had] popped up as a search result [on Soundcloud]," says Hlasko about how the initial meeting happened. The next evening, the two were in studio recording music – fusing traditional Lesotho sounds from Africa and traditional Moloya music from Reunion Island with futuristic electro…

"Kaang is the name of the Creator in the Animist Bushman Myths; He represents all the elements and is present in all things," continues Hlasko, adding that both of them were drawn to the mythology through their shared San ancestry. "In a way this is us getting in touch and attempting to keep the ancient culture alive by reintroducing it to a whole new generation," he says.

Kaang's self-titled debut single precedes their EP, also self-titled, which is already due for release on Eumolpe Records in May.
