Yugen Blakrok – Pedestal

Gorgeously moody new music from the Eastern Cape’s Yugen Blakrok and new single Pedestal.


She’s a veteran of the South African scene who saw greater international recognition with spots on Kendrick’s Black Panther soundtrack and the Cyberpunk 2077 soundtrack – her debut album from 2013, Return Of The Astro-Goth (a collaboration with producer Kanif the Jhatmaster), was picked up on by the likes of Chuck D and Sage Francis.

Yugen’s follow-up, 2019’s Anima Mysterium, received critical acclaim and even hit the Bandcamp Top 100. Check this COLORS performance of Morbid Abakus:
