Description

Glitterbeat presents: BLK JKS - Abantu / Before Humans

BLK JKS are a seminal force in the South African underground.

After an extended hiatus the Johannesburg foursome, championed by The Mars Volta and TV On The Radio (amongst many others), return with a groundbreaking new album.

Monster grooves meet guitar and brass driven afro-rock.

Echoes of spiritual jazz, post-apocalyptic funk, renegade dub and kwaito.

Features Malian guitarist Vieux Farka Touré and Beastie Boys accomplice Money Mark on the track "Maiga.

This South African art-rock band traffics in complexity, cross-hatching not only rhythms and textures but also the signifiers of genre - The New York Times
