Wildebeats - Lynx Vapours EP [A+T002]

Press statement for Art + Techno

Wildebeats / Mohato Lekena‘s debut on Art + Techno.

Lynx is a constellation known for holding the largest body of water in the known universe. This water floats in vapour form around a highly active, massive black hole. Looking at space, fluidity and immersion, Lynx Vapours is a pair of bangers inspired by these themes.”

Computer Scientist and producer Mohato Lekena is the alter ego of South African bass/hip-hop producer Wildebeats.

Having been involved with rap since before the word pimping was a compliment, Wildebeats aims to create morphed, future versions of the instrumentals he grew up on.

Operating with the glowLDB collective, he hopes soon to bring more jiggle beats to our local scene.
