The awesome South African dance track that ruined my weekend

A friend introduced me to South Africa's DJ Mujava last August, but I had all but forgotten him until I heard "Township Funk" playing at Trophy Bar a few nights ago. I momentarily mistook him for Crystal Castles (which I tend to think of as the gold standard of electronic music, so I can give no better endorsement). I was happy to get reacquainted, and to revisit the slithering dance moves in the song's video.

And then I listened to it one too many times, and had that infectuous synth hook stuck in my head for the rest of the weekend. Handle with care, people -- if I start whistling the refrain one more time, I won't have a single friend left.
