12 years ago, Mr. Lif & Akrobatik’s group The Perceptionists were set to release their debut album on the now legendary label Def Jux. The Boston trio (which included DJ Fakts One at the time) had dropped the single “Memorial Day” outlining the politics of the day that were not so dissimilar to today’s climate. Their debut album “Black Dialogue” hit and earned acclaim across the board from XLR8R to Entertainment Weekly, and landed in the Top 50 on Billboard’s Heatseeker’s Charts.
From those expectant beginnings, The Perceptionists launched their commercial career. But just before the first tour DJ Fakts One left the group to focus on family. Lif & Ak went out on the road performing at Paid Dues alongside their peers Murs, and Atmosphere.

Akrobatik was suddenly hit with emergency surgery that required an aortic dissection to save his life.

So we've got a new podcast show/segment starting 18th June 2017 - Mzansi Pulses. This hour podcast showcases the rich musical heritage within South Africa. Not just limited by traditional or jazz - this podcast also showcases hints of South African electronica in it's infancy stages, roots/reggea and off course some vintage South African HipHop.
Though our focus is HipHop music here on Beat Bangaz Radio we also feel that it's imperative to share our rich musical history with the world - we are proudly South African and African by nature. Hope ya'll tune in and give us feedback. Connect with us via Twitter, Facebook @BeatBangazRadio or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
