Multi-Racial Records | Record Store

Multi-Racial Records

Address: 1204 Prospect St, Hatfield, Pretoria, 0083, South Africa
This started as an events company in 1999 and turned into a record store in 2003. It is the brainchild of DJ Sisco Ribeiro and his friend Art Jones, who passed away in 2009. Out of their shared passion for House music, it grew into a favourite spot for House vinyl collectors. The shop is also home to a record label of the same name, which famously championed a first-on-vinyl release strategy at a time when CDs had taken over the industry. They now boast a DJ school.

Afrosynth Records | Record Store

Afrosynth Records

Address: 25 Albrecht St, Jeppestown, Johannesburg, 2043, South Africa
Afrosynth Records is a Johannesburg-based record label specialising in South African bubblegum and kwaito from the 1980s and ‘90s. It began in 2009 as a blog dedicated to preserving SA pop music from the 1980s and early 1990s, the vast majority of which was never digitised and remains largely inaccessible. Beyond bubblegum, the Afrosynth online archive also covers other genres from the same time and place, including jazz and traditional music, as well as vinyl releases from other Southern African countries such Zimbabwe and DR Congo. Curated from the collection of DJ Okapi, the aim of the blog has been to provide an online presence to the music and musicians of a vibrant yet largely forgotten era before their legacy is lost forever. Increasing interest in recent years has led to the Afrosynth record store and label. Selling online since 2015, in 2016 a physical store was opened in Maboneng, downtown Johannesburg. In 2017 the label was born with the reissue of Burnin’ Beat (AFS034).
