Jumping Back Slash has a new single on Swak Catalog, taken from the album 'A Map of the Hills I Chose to Die On': eight tracks of experimental tones themed around "loss and quixotic battles against giant enemies".
The track, 'Wotuno', which the British-born South Africa-based producer self-describes as "weirdo amapiano/bacardi something or other hybrid", has been unveiled online with its own animated video. The full record is also out now, and available digitally via Bandcamp.

Amapiano artists Mpura and Killer Kau have died after being involved in a car accident while travelling en route to a concert in Rustenburg, South Africa on 7th August.
Early reports from the incident claimed another of the scene's brightest stars, Kabza De Small, had also been killed, but the artist took to Twitter to confirm this was inaccurate.
