Internationally renowned producer UPZ who brought us Mzansi classics Pure Surprise, Uzongilinda, Believing & What’s The Point plus collabs with Black Motion, Cuebur, Black Coffee and more, returns with a brand new single taken from his recently release album. The new single is titled A Dream Away and it includes the sultry vocals of Sió.
Drop It, the new album by UPZ, marks a step forward in the music direction of the South African/Israeli producer and DJ. Not content with the tried & trusted, UPZ experiments and ventures into new sonic avenues whilst continuously extending his collaboration tentacles. He features a mixture of talented artists and Sió is one of them.
Sió was voted no. 9 Top Vocalist for 2017 as per Traxsource and they said about her: A Dream Away’ teamed warm synths and sophisticated Afro percussion to provide a perfect backing for Sió’s voice, resulting in a deep and classy track. We cannot agree more with those sentiments as that
The track has seen support from prominent and celebrated DJ’s such as DJ Kent, Oscar P, D-Malice, Ian Friday, Afrowarrioirs, Madorasindahouse (youtube), YFM Hot99 Dance Charts to name a few.
Beyond the mere exploration of universal themes of love, relationships and the “feel-good”, Drop It finds UPZ and co lyrically tap into topics of social relevance and mystique specifically with tracks like Drop It (feat Thantaswa), Sangoma’s Theme (feat Lifford), And In Time (with BlackwHole) and A Dream Away (with Siò, award winning vocalist of 1000 memories with Julian Gomes).
