African "Rave" Music

Man it's been a while since I posted something.....
School. Bills. Rent. You know how it is lol.

Anyways, over the past few years many new genres of "rave" music have started from all over Africa including Kuduro, Hiplife, Coupe Decale, Kwaito and so on.
They all have something in common. It's about freedom of expression. It's about youth spilling onto the dance-floor and experimenting with a wave of old and new sounds and of freedom of association. It's all about escape from the hardships of life. Life is tough in the motherland, sh*t it's not easy being a youth in general wherever you live.
Y'all know when you're sick of life and you HIT the dance-floor, all your problems just melt away (Well it's true for me..I don't know about you lol). If you know me very well... I DANCE my problems away lol.
Here's a collection of some of my favourite tunes right now that I blast in my speakers...whether i'm in the library gettin' my learn on, or in my room bored as hell.
