Dahl Hates Disco, the Gauteng based collective that bought us the breakout single Endless Motion off their debut EP Some People in 2017, have now released their sophomore EP titled Tell Me.

Tell Me is a four track EP of feel good summer tinged pop-house vocal tracks. These also includes a single released mid 2018 titled I’ll Never Be with it’s catchy saxophone hook and sultry female vocal.

I’ll Never Be received official new Music Friday support by Spotify when it dropped. It also has received multiple radio play listing in SA in 2018. 

As a mostly anonymous collective, Dahl Hates Disco first burst into the scene in 2016 with their debut single Endless Motion that, without social media presence or major label support, managed to obtain nationwide play-listing on top 10 charting positions on multiple radio stations.

This was followed by the four track EP Some People in 2017 that was also featured on the front page of both iTunes SA and iTunes Israel. This in addition to Endless Motion, yielded an indie house favorite among deep house DJ’s titled So Long. and remixes by Cuebur, UPZ and Abicah Soul.

The collective explores and produces a scope of music styles covering house, pop and indie-dance.

Could 2019 Finally Be The Year For Mzekekeze’s Big Come Back?

Published

on

If you were alive in the early 2000’s then you may remember how huge Kwaito music was. TS Records, owned by DJ Sbu and Thembinkosi Nciza produced some of the most stellar artists who dominated the charts and won countless awards. This was a major deal because TS Records was an independent label. Artists who we consider the cream of the crop at the time included Brown Dash, Brickz, Mafikizolo and the balaclava-wearing Mzekezeke.

The Mzekezeke and DJ Sbu situation being the one in the same is long so we won’t get into that. But in October of last year the duo announced that they are forming a new record label together. This was after TS records closed down due to both DJ Sbu and TK Nciza decided to focus on their individual business ventures.

Mzekezeke’s come back has been warmly received so far

The new label is called Mzekezeke Music and the first release was DJ Sbu’s soulful house joint titled Beautiful featuring Portia Monique. The second being Mzekekzeke’s first official come back single Gqom single, Nay Lento which was surprisingly warmly received. 

So this begs the question, is this the year that Mzekekzeke will finally be making an official and unrelenting come back? We think so.

Mzekezeke has always been illusive and a little of an enigma. Even though we have always suspected that he is DJ Sbu, there was never a slip up or a confirmation of this. This may work to keep his relevance up to a younger audience. Plus if he is already working on new music which appeals to people who haven’t heard of him, this may be advantageous for him.

At the moment there is an interest in authentic South African sounds from the global audience and from within the country. We are beginning to appreciate the beautiful influence that Kwaito has had on our music. Cassper Nyovest, Okmalumkoolkat and Kwesta have been incorporating elements of the genre into their sound and creating a fusion of Hip Hop and Kwaito. If Mzekezeke hops on this trend and brings back that essence of the sound he had in his glory days, this could work.

The charm of the Mzekezeke persona has always been his authenticity and singing about issues that we laugh at in our private corners. The world never gets tired on genuine energy so this may be one thing that works in his favour.

What do you think? Is 2019 the year  Mzekezeke comes back in a huge way?
