Earlier this summer, South London production trio LV announced their forthcoming Sebenza LP — a collaborative effort with South African MCs Spoek Mathambo, Ruffest and Okmalumkoolkat of 5 Best New Artists bros Dirty Paraffin — by way of a stunning clip for its title track, shot in downtown Johannesburg and Orange Farm township. It felt like something of a star turn for Okmalumkoolkat in particular, the Durban-bred MC's charisma in frame and on record converging in spectacular fashion. For the Chris Saunders and Malcom Chen-shot "Spitting Cobra" clip below, he remains in rare, can't-take-your-eyes-away form, despite the less frenetic feel of the track itself. Sebenza is due September 4, 2012 via Hyperdub, Dirty Paraffin's DP EP is out now and can still be heard right here.
