Das Kapital calling Potch producers and artists to contribute to new album

The DJ, producer and co-founder of Do Work Records, Das Kapital, is calling on music producers and artists across South Africa, whether they hold amateur or veteran status, to submit tracks for possible inclusion on his upcoming album, Das Kapital Presents Overtime Volume 2, due to be released in October 2017.

In 2016, Do Work Records released Das Kapital Presents Overtime Volume 1: a compilation of 15 of the best recordings under the label that featured a cross-section of styles and sounds across the spectrum of South African dance music and electronic artists and producers at the time.
‘Volume 2 will take that concept to the next level; bringing together all of South Africa’s dance music scenes, putting them into one album and creating a holistic overview of what’s really kicking proverbial ass in the local, burgeoning scene,’ he says.

Das Kapital has already started seeding the first component of Volume 2; sourcing tracks from local artists that he, himself, has collaborated or worked with in the past, and that have made an impact both locally and internationally within their respective genres. These include house, techno, Gqom, beats and half-time and their sub-genres.
The second component will be seeded via submissions from up-and-coming South African producers and artists. Das Kapital will collate both procured and seeded submissions and will set about poring over the album; directing and adjusting each submission until a coherent project is realised from inception to completion. ‘The result will stand as a time capsule of what South African dance music sounded like in 2017,’ he adds.

Potchefstroomers can submit their tracks via email to info@doworkrecords.com in MP3 format by no later than 4 August. Each submission must be original and should be accompanied by the producer’s full name, DJ name and a contact number. No DataFileHost links will be accepted and private, downloadable SoundCloud links are preferred. Samples that have not been cleared, remixes or tracks previously featured or released on streaming sites will not be eligible.

The final album, which will include around 20 original and remixed tracks, is scheduled for release by Do Work Records in October 2017.
