blasthaus and Another Planet presents the return of THE VERY BEST (Radioclit & Esau Mwamwaya) Live! -Ghettopop Records. These guys put out what Pitchfork called "just about the most listenable and flat-out enjoyable record of the last year" (8.6 rating). We couldn't agree more and after a long time trying to get them back, its finally on with a capital O.

Born out of the love of hip hop's ethos to consistently push the boundaries forward by extrapolating what was unique about the past and what is radically refreshing about the future, Radioclit's Etienne Tron and Johan Karlberg have teamed up with Malawian songsmith Esau Mwamwaya to form The Very Best, an epic global partnership with the sole aim to re-write western pop rules in a language which is not English. It's the birth of a great partnership! Their recent release, Mixtape, has garnered rave reviews from across the planet, and their upcoming debut album will feature the likes of Vampire Weekend, M.I.A. and Marina Vellow (formerly of Brazilian three-piece Bonde do Role.) This will be another party to remember, so get ready!
