Regional dance music the best dance music. New Orleans' bounce, Baltimore club, Argentinian cumbia villera, UK funky, Monterrey, Mexico's tribal guarachero and now, as Eddie Stats has so diligently been covering over at his Ghetto Palms column, we have Shangaan electro from South Africa. At about ten billion BPM, it's definitely made for the most lithe dancer, lots of nice little blunted hi-hat rolls and toy synth sounds. But don't take our word for it, take the word of the dude who worked on the compilation, Wills Glasspiegel and take a listen over at NPR.
