Even before South Africa's monstrous apartheid system was abolished in favor of multiracial democracy, Cape Town was a popular nightspot for many European travelers. The new political system has enlivened the country's youth culture, as evidenced by the proliferation of clubs and bars, especially around the capital. Counter Strike are a product of this renaissance, and their searing drum and bass has been seized upon by
Dune's Aaron Siegner and Oliver Sasse for their latest label, Allied Recordings. "Pressure" and "Zentradi" are just the tip of the iceberg for this talented and forward-thinking duo.
