Formed around 2008 in Cape Town with Laz cutting cakes, no, breaks and Sakie playing computer, guitar, keyboards and vocals over microchops of electronic dub Xhosa as part of the collective Tapedeck Circuitry.

Johnny Cradle started off with complex glitch rhythms over deep basslines and 90s era scratch samples playing in places like Obz Cafe and surrounding Cape varsities and colleges.

Fast forward a few years, add bluesy/rock guitarist Chris Lombard in the masala. Take him out. Straighten up the riddim and add Tebza in the mix, original scratch samples for kicks, live bass on the Moog and a more focused lyric reflecting the township rooted/ suburb routed landscape for the fix and you have a debut album that sounds like what you’ll hear next time you see one of their live shows in their home-base Johannesburg.
Promoters across the world hit the link in the bio. Love.
