Notes

Highlife throws a curveball for it’s next release with a piece of Kwaito from South Africa’s DJ Call Me.

A track sweeter than Irn Bru, we first stumbled across ‘Marry Me’ on the radio by the New York DJ, Sadaf. After a quick search, we found it on YouTube with over a million views, only to discover it had been “track of the summer(s)” back in South Africa at the start of the decade. Almost a ‘Searching for Sugarman’ moment... The track wasn’t available to buy in any kind of format, and so began an elaborate quest to track down the artist via his defunct Facebook page. After many an unanswered email and a couple of years persistence, we finally managed to track down a manager still in touch with DJ Call Me, and we’re now involved in some regular Whatsapp exchanges with the man himself.

After showing it to a select group of DJ pals, it began to show up on the ID of music Facebook group, courtesy of plays by the likes of Axel Boman, Hunee & Kornél Kovács. Last summer, Auntie Flo and Andrew played at a wedding in Beirut and this track got such a massive reaction that we’ve been dying to share it with you ever since. DJ Call Me’s ‘Marry Me’ is out via Highlife on Fri, 20th April 2018

    If anyone wants to sell their copy at a reasonable price from UK/Europe give me a shout.

    This could do with a repress really, paying £55 plus shipping for a 2 track record released a couple years ago is heavy.
