It’s time again to praise another DJ/Producer I have been very honoured to work with, smoke with and just get to grips with. Fletcher Beadon, known by many as one of the original members of Cape Town’s Krushed & Sorted crew and African Dope Records executives. From big beats and basslines, to locking himself in the studio for 3 months to unearth the African Dope Soundsystem album, Fletcher or DJ Dope as he has been called in the past, deserves a shout out from the Blunted one.
Cape Town has been pushing itself into a more visible spot regarding its musical talents and after the Red Bull Music Academy paid them a visit in 2003, this seemed to be a good progression; A Taste of Sonar.
Fletcher has toned down his beat and bass lifestyle and ventured into his much-loved appreciation for dub and ambient sounds. This is his live set from the Sonar event, which got to see him open for Modeselektor and the Massive Attack DJs. Respect Dude!!!
