Dladla Mshunqisi To Drop New Album Titled uMshunqu Next Week



Dladla Mshunqisi has featured on some of the biggest and hottest songs for the past two years and a couple of days ago, he announced that he will be dropping his debut album. Titled uMshunqu, the album is set to drop on the 19th of October which he has already put up on pre-order on Apple Music. He has already dropped 2 tracks along with the pre-order.

We first got wind of Dladla Mshunqisi when he featured on Benny Maverick’s Memeza back in 2017 and since then, he has made sure that which ever song he is featured on, he kills.

He has worked with Tipcee, Distruction Boyz on Omunye and DJ Tira on Pakisha to name a few. If all of these contributions are to go by, then his debut album, uMshunqu, is going to be straight fire. 

uMshunqu is a 13 track project which is a healthy number of tracks for a debut album. The project features plenty of talented artists, both known and unknown.

Busiswa, Prince Kaybee, Nokwazi and Tipcee are some of the more familiar names we see on the track list. Cruel Boyz, Target and Ndile as well as DJ Mphyd are some of the names that we are not familiar with. 

Although Dladla does not have a joint where he is on his own, which makes us a little concerned, as we need to be sure of what kind of a solo artist he is. We have no doubt that every single joint on this album is designed for the dance floor! We can’t wait for it to drop. 

Pre-order the album here.

#TrapTuesday: Darse Mayne Drops New EP Titled Vacation



Tuesdays are our faves because we dedicate it to the wonderful genre of Trap Music. Although the genre has evolved over the last couple of years with the popular approach mellowed down, it still kicks. Today we profile talented young rapper, Darse Mayne who recently dropped his EP.

Derrick Oliver is young, hungry and making music that not only resonated but that is well suited for his scope of talent. The young rapper was born on the 17th of April 2001 which means he is barely out of his teens.

He is better known by his stage name, Darse Mayne, is a Nigerian recording hip hop artist, producer, songwriter born in Nigeria and raised in South Africa. Darse is originally a rapper but due to his versatile art and raw talent, he has tapped into different genres such as Afro pop, Rnb and Dance hall.

In May he dropped his single titled Whole Life followed by a music video which got so much support from his listeners and the single earned him an interview on Vow fm and UJ FM. To follopw that success up, Darse Mayne dropped his first solo project titled Vacation with 7 tracks that are self produced.

Did he name his EP Vacation because of the sound? 

The EP itself is such a breath of fresh air. There is a seamless fusion of Trap Soul, RnB and Dance Hall which makes Vacation a literal vacation for the ears. 

The beats are not too intrusive, they are laidback enough for the listener to be able to enjoy the actual content of the song. It’s also comforting to know that he produced this entire project by himself. 

He raps mostly about the current state of his mind, his hustles, what he struggles with. His flow, cadence and sensible approach to making music is impressive, especially for an artist as young as he is. He shows incredible maturity and honesty in this project. 

Darse feels that it’s in his hands to get South African music recognized beyond that which is already set by our current reigning artists. If he carries on making this type of music then we have no doubt that his vision will be realized. 

Link up with the kid on his Twitter and Instagram for more updates on the music.
