CCCADI and Society HAE have gone looking for the next wave of African music makers where they’re sure to be found: in the club. Blitz the Ambassador is a rapper from Ghana whose speedy delivery matches rhymes to a number of motherland pulses. South Africa's Spoek Mathambo swings it electro, drawing inspiration from Jamaican dancehall, UK dubstep and postpunks like Joy Division. Iyadede is the girl who fell to Earth in Rwanda with a head full of alterna-pop hooks.
