To celebrate the release of his debut EP Free Trades, Das Kapital is offering fans a free download from the EP: Brainbang. Like the American Deep South’s twisted South African cousin, BrainBang’s looping vocal hook from Louis Blaise will get your neck snapping till your head hurts. Distorted 808s, warm synths and twisted drums make this track a full-blown dancefloor problem.
Out Jan 27th, the Free Trades EP is a solid showcase of his influences, featuring three driving cuts of dance music. Drawing on his knowledge as a DJ to work the dancefloor, it’s typically indefinable to those who know Das Kapital and makes a journey across electro to trap and into a sound solely his own. Already tearing up the dancefloors, the EP has support from Nick Thayer (OWSLA), HeavyFeet (UK), OWWWLS, Moska (Mixmash / Mad Decent), Revero (Mixmash), Eddy TM (XFM), 5FM (South Africa), SonicC (Dim Mak), Taiki and Nulight (Benga Beats / Cheap Thrills) and is will be released via Do Work Records on January 27th.

“We’ve seen some good edits of Bon Iver tracks, but none have come close to touching Das Kapital’s brilliant masterpiece… it’s the kind of tune that sticks to your soul” – DANCING ASTRONAUGHT
“I’m a huge fan of Cape Town’s Das Kapital – he really makes an amazing track even better.” – SUNSET IN THE REARVIEW
“Das Kapital is an excellent DJ – his sets match his productions; moulding intricate percussion, brooding melodies and dark bass into something wholly his own.” – KISS FM
