I never knew Matthew Africa, but I listened to his mixes for years. And chances are, you’ve heard some of them too.
As told by his sister, Julia Africa:
My brother, Matthew Africa, was killed in a car accident on Monday afternoon. He and his beloved wife, Ha Le, were returning from a trip to Yosemite when their car collided with a big rig on a highway near Modesto. They tell us he died instantly; miraculously, she survived with multiple fractures. His absence is unbearable. Please keep our families in your thoughts and prayers.
As long as his page stays active, you can get some of his mixes HERE.
Sorry, I couldn’t figure out how to embed the podmatic player, but here are a few of my favorite mixes from Matthew Africa.
RIP Matthew Africa.
