WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In Turn Up): Spoek Mathambo “Control”

Slapping eerie upon eerie, Spoek Mathambo’s take on Joy Division’s “She’s Lost Control” (reworked and re-titled simply “Control”), utilizes house beats and distorted synths to up the feelings of paranoia the song so easily conjures. The young South Africa utilizes his prowess in hip hop and knowledge of electronic beats to create a fierce sound that is at once both aware and one to lose oneself into. Spoek releases a brand new EP today, Put Some Red On It [Sub Pop], which features remixes by Telepathe and Shabazz Palaces.
