Benguela's double album Sui/Chop Sui is 20 years old. Recorded as a live improvisation in front of 30 guests at Sui Studios in Cape Town, the tracks were then sent to artists such as Felix Laband and Burnt Friedman to remix. It was released on Open Record in 2003 to critical acclaim. Now beautifully remastered by Dirk Hugo, both Sui and Chop Sui are finally available on streaming services for the first time. Chop Sui includes four bonus remixes we couldn't fit on the CD :)
