Streets Raps & Us - Rattex EP Cover

Rattex is back with a banging EP that cements his place as one of South Africa’s foremost hip hop talents. With production by Hipe and Dplanet, DJ Raiko on cuts and a special remix by Swiss electro-dub band Filewile, expect more kasi fire straight from the dusty streets of Khayelitsha. 7784 is definitely in the house!

This is Rattex’s first release since his debut solo album, Bread and Butter. He has just returned from an extensive European tour that saw him tear up stages at an impressive list of Festivals including Paleo Festival (CH), Electron Festival (CH), Fusion Festival (DE), B-Sides Festival (CH) and JazzParade (CH). Most of the EP was recorded at Red Bull Studios in Cape Town – big up Ivan, Steve, Richard and Jake. Sikubo was recorded at Wankdorf Studios in Berne, Switzerland while Rattex was on tour – big up Daniel, Andreas and the whole Filewile crew.

The digital EP comes with an extended artwork pack (PDF) designed by spo0ky. It also includes 2 acapellas for all the DJs and remixers out there. Although this is primarily a digital release, a limited number of CDs will be available at The African Music Store in Cape Town and via mail order in the coming days. Contact us to pre-order a copy now.
