When futuristic Namibian rap trio Black Vulcanite burst onto the southern African hip-hop scene in 2013, they brought with them an air of consciousness that had been missing for some time. Despite the distance now between them – Ali is in Namibia, Mark has been traveling throughout Europe and Niko is in Beijing – the trio is back this month with another thought-provoking catalogue. Black Colonialists, their 22-track sophomore effort, is gutsy, sincere and insightful, peppered with intergalactic fiction and time travel. The first track they recorded for the album, “Jupiter’s Love,” is an ode to the ever-elusive “woman of their dreams”. Enjoy!
