Spoek Mathambo “Control”

March 18, 2011

If you, the readers, weren’t impressed by the last black and white music video masterpiece we posted by Tyler, The Creator then you’ll be tearing your own skin off to see this Spoek Mathambo video for “Control.” It’s a magnificent cover of the much-beloved Joy Division’s “She’s Lost Control.” The video is chock-full of religious (Christian & traditional African religions) imagery and an outfit ready for Puff Daddy’s or Yo Gotti’s all-white parties.

Spoek himself is dubbing the sounds of his electronic beats as “Township Tech.” Rightfully so, because as seen in this video, Townships (the notorious South African ghettos of Jo-Burg) and a dance troupe from them account for a large portion of the content. It really is beyond words, so we’ll let the visuals do the talking.
