With artists like Black Coffee, labels like Chocolate City, events like Africa Rising Music Conference and the explosion of amapiano onto the international scene, the future of electronic music in Africa looks increasingly. This feature will look at the opportunities that abound plus the pitfalls to be mindful of in this rapidly growing scene. And how can the nascent electronic music economy be informed by the best (and worst) practices of the mature anglo-american industry structures so that Africa can ‘build better’?
