We have to admit we find it hard not to like any of the of the bass heavy, mechanically monstrous beats and rhymes that fire out way from the Cape Town direction. A seriously big and dutty sound combined with seriously good rhymes, yet there's something light hearted about everything that keeps it from being too... well, serious. Not that this has any reflection on the quality, not by a long shot but there seems to be a consistent characteristic of really enjoying making music. None outline this more perhaps than the trio of Narch, Mark Z and Disco Izrael who make up P.H. Fat. We've included a couple of their tracks in the past, plus one or two solo pieces and now they've hit us up with some new tasty tunes to share with you all.

We also have some tracks from a crew who are new to us here but that fit perfectly into our already high estimations of the Cape Town scene. Jam Jar is the combination of producer Soundproof and Bakaman on rhyme duty, who sounds similar to Michael Franti at times with a deep laid back delivery, but then switches up and fires flames on Neck Low, one of the more Dubstep influenced tracks. Here's a couple of examples but there's plenty more on Baka's Soundcloud account.

Plus finally we have an instrumental from a man who's no stranger to this page and who has worked with members of P.H. Fat and Baka in his time. If any emcees are feeling this beat enough to ride it then Liver would be most pleased.
