Card On Spokes
Card On Spokes blurs the lines between space-synth glitch, and future-step music, performing his live electronica sets with synths and an APC40.
Card On Spokes is steadily garnering a die hard fan base, and coupled with his unique take on Electronica with a strong local flavour, is definitely one of the rising stars in the cutting edge musical landscape.
Mahayabhuqe thinks he is a man. He thinks he is flesh and warm breath. That is only because he is still under the control of Nsikelelo Ndlovu, whose Mandeni/eNkandla upbringing prevents him from being anything but a calabash of humble. If it wasn’t for Nsikelelo, Mashayabhuqe would realise that he is not flesh and warm breath. He is incense and spirit-pressure.
