October 2008 - Steppin it up again with three new international recordings as well as a new weekly slot on Dutch national radio! Cape Verde, Angola, Tanzania and the rest of the continent are well served in this episode.

In this show, we introduce new member to the African hip hop radio family, dj Dona from Kenya, currently dwelling in the States. Revoltod invites Cabo-Dutch artists Black Wolture and Concept to his studio for an interview and exclusive freestyles and Cavera serves up a platter of hand-picked Angolan real school tracks.

Meanwhile, GMB, J4 & Threesixty are back with their regular show. After doing a monthly show for public radio channel NPS Lijn5, they have been 'bought out' together with the other Lijn5 shows to do their weekly programs on a different station! From October 2008, their show will be live on Fun-X (cable radio and internet stream, in Dutch language) every thursday from 20 to 23 hrs (GMT+1). If you wish to listen on a weekly basis, tune in live on thursdays at or listen to archived shows at

Dj Dona from Kenya has acquired quite some fame through his non-stop series of mixtapes of East African hip hop. Apart from Kenyan genge and other local genres he's also schooled in Bongo flava, the Tanzanian poppy hip hop that has ruled the East African charts in the past five years and continues to do so. This set is strictly TZ bongo flava & hip hop!
