Lauren Beukes’ unparalleled Zoo City is now out everywhere, and attracting much love. To enhance your reading experience, a wonderful soundtrack to accompany the book has been created too, in conjunction with acclaimed South African production house African Dope.
Compiled by Lauren and African Dope producer HoneyB, it features an eclectic line-up, ranging from old school kwaito from Ishmael and Brown Dash to gritty electronica from 37 MPH and Markus Wormstorm. It’s the perfect mood-setter to join Zinzi December and Sloth in their extraordinary trek through the shattered city in search of their missing pop starlet.
You can listen to the whole thing over at African Dope’s site or go straight to their store to snap it up for yourself – and here’s a code to get it with 50% off, courtesy of Lauren herself: Marabou&malt3s3
