Cheers. I spent a humungous amount of time on the mixing, so it's great to hear that it's pa**ed muster.

Nyambz not doing beats? I must be luckiest dude alive then. In fairness, his protege Arch made the beat, and Nyambz arranged it and polished it. Co-production then.

Awesome review of the album at Rhythm Circus:

"The album’s chief merit lies in its attention to detail and this is a highly accomplished effort from a self-confessed “skinny white South African Jew” who, as both an emcee and lyricist (not that the two are—or should be – separable) conveys the ability of a sharp wordsmith while lauding a humility and a measured sensibility that proves that you don’t have to emote into oblivion in a bid to sound real. It is an album that also shows a relentless ambition to produce something to the best of one’s ability; indeed African epitomises Rob’s commitment to hip-hop and proves that as well as being a dope commentator, he is an equally worthy contributor to the art form as well."
