During the summer of 2013, we highlighted some of the brightest electronic acts in South Africa, and Cape Town's own Das Kapital graced the list in style. He's something of a tour de force for electronic everymen in that scene, knocking out official remixes, owning his own imprint (Do Work Records), being featured all over South Africa's festival circuit and radio airwaves, and even knocking out official sounds for Nokia and adidas campaigns. Basically, his stock is rising, and if you're not already up on Das Kapital, you need to get to know.
In support of his latest release, a remix of Corderoy's "Dark Disco," Das Kapital felt the itch to run through some of his favorite dark discos. Looks like he has an affinity for the more sinister way of life when it comes to clubland:
"I’m glad that most of the parties I play at take a dark turn when I’m playing, because “uplifting” is really overrated. Here are my five favorite dark discos that I’ve played at."
