Jackpot Jive is a genuine introduction to the sound of a rhythmical resistance in South Africa.
With an oppressive regime spinning out of control it urged the natives into catharsis where song and dance became peaceful mediums for protest against the madness. This compilation is a unique flame of raw power in contrast to the heartless hustle of the apartheid - a rare and compelling selection of 45’s from the crates of Johannesburg sharing underground labels such as Chocolate City, Mumsie, Beat City, Six Mabone and Ring Records.
Limited to 300 copies - this is for the digger, ethnomusicologist and beat junkie. A combination of Sax Jive, Zulu Soul, Xhosa, Zulu Disco, Kwela, Bump Jive, and Sotho Soul.
Throughout these sub genres, determination is forever shielding the soul powered vocals and melodic liberation fusing together the pride and passion belonging to a community built on resilience. Local guitar riffs, fruity organ runs and the cry of the fearless penny whistle weaves indigenous roots throughout the body, creating an infectious boogie. Disco, Funk, Soul and Jazz are definitely in the mix. And naturally, Punk bubbles to the surface.
Regarding the conservation of these recordings, the listener can be assured that they survive true to the fundamental essence of South African culture. Restored by means of pure analogue and custom built equipment at Masterlabs in Dublin City. We’re proud to deliver a fragment of history exclusive to a society gifted in transforming extreme levels of injustice into such sonically joyous movements!
Let the contour and pulse bump us into positive elevation.
