Special 15: 3rd Ear Experience by Tune Me What? on Mixcloud

In this the first of an occasional series of short special 15 minute episodes, we put the spotlight on veteran South African cosmic rocker, Robbi Robb who is heading from his new home in the Mojave Desert across the Atlantic for a European Tour. Robbi has put up some tickets and merch for our lucky EU listeners so check out the SWEEPSTAKE on our Facebook page!

So enjoy this mini-Tune Me What? as we do a quick retrospective of Robbi’s iconic SA bands the Asylum Kids and Tribe After Tribe and give you a taste of his new ‘space rock’ album with his the cosmic 3rd Ear Experience.

Hits The World Missed by Tune Me What? on Mixcloud

It’s an obvious point that South African artists have produced unique sounds and field-leading music across most genres, but even today few SA musicians manage to trouble the charts overseas. Needless to say, there are a great many tunes which really should be up there with the classics of the pop cannon. They should have been global smash hits!

In this episode we barely scratch the surface with our pick of a dozen tracks the world missed out on… or is missing out on!

In this show, we knock out:

  • The Anti Retro Vinyls
  • Clout
  • The Dealians
  • Ella Mental
  • éVoid
  • The Helecopters
  • Hotline & Steve Kekana
  • Joy
  • Nakhane Toure
  • Robin Auld
  • Sipho ‘Hotstix’ Mabuse
  • Tim Parr
