Das Kapital’s Do Work Records releases first compilation
Do Work Records have released their first ever label compilation titled “Das Kapital Presents Overtime” on the 2nd of September 2016. The album features fifteen of the most exciting electronic music across the South African scene.
Do Work Records label owner, Das Kapital shares that this compilation has been in the works over the last few years…
“This project has been years in the making. Over those years, I’ve been fortunate enough to be surrounded by some of the most interesting and talented young producers in South Africa, and am proud to call a large part of them a part of the Do Work Records family. This album marks a rebirth in the label, with a bigger drive for cross-pollination between the many sounds and styles coming out of the camp, as well as a push for more frequent releases.”
Do Work Records is also scheduled to launch a new sub-label. The objective of the ‘Overtime’ album is to spotlight the some of the genius and lesser known sounds coming out of local studios.
All about the artists
He also made it a point to ensure that the compilation was all about the other artists being featured and not about him…
“This compilation is a slice of what South African club music is about – diversity, and authenticity, no matter the style. A lot of A&Ring, and weeks of tweaks later, we have something here that represents both the breadth of the label, and the quality of our artists. With a lot of the boys now writing and producing and signing to major labels and international cult labels alike, it’s time to release this beast. Do Work 2.0 is here, and we’re working Overtime.”
The title of the Do Work Records compilation album is named after the club night that takes place once a month at Fiction in Cape Town. The ‘Overtime’ compilation is unapologetic cross section of electronic dance music in SA without being stuck in any sort of purist category.
