Nothing makes one feel older than realising that the music they have enjoyed in their youth is turning two decades old. Think about all the music you enjoyed 15 years ago; don’t they sound like they were dropped yesterday? Today we are thrilled to announce that the princes of Kwaito music, Msawawa and Mzambiya bring us a new single titled iMoto Ka Shukela.
We fell in love with Msawawa and Mzambiya when they dropped their collaborative song, Wawungakanani back in 2001. The former child stars have not been silent since then; they have released music but failed to capture the nation. But now, iMoto Ka Shukela is looking to be their saving grace as they have managed to get us excited about what their next move is. Talent can’t be destroyed fam.
The Gqom influenced Kwaito song is a solid dance floor type of joint. The thumping baseline and screeching synchs keep the tune bouncy and current. Plus the hook is catchy AF. We have Solo Boys and O. Mlangeni to thank for that. They also threw in nostalgic lines to remind us who we are listening to.
The Gqom beat was a little distracting because we were expecting a little bit more Kwaito but that was just us. We can only hope that they will consider doing a few more songs together; joint Kwaito album anybody?
The song has not officially dropped but we’ll keep you updated as soon as it is available on digital platforms.
Peep the song below!
Umlazi Rapper, Robin Thirdfloor Shows Us A Glimpse Of Ethekwini
After the success of his EP, Bhotela that included charting on online streaming platforms, touring and great reception from both national and international publications, Robin Thirdfloor is back. The talented rapper has returned with visuals from his latest single, Ethekwini.
Robin Thirdfloor is not new in these streets and we have to say, we are digging homeboys vibe. This is because with each and every release, he comes out with a fresh perspective on his music.
One thing which remains constant though is his unique take on any song. On Ethekwini there are 80’s drums, Gqom basslines and a Trap edge which make it special.
In the video he explores the Durban scene and shows us a glimpse of a day in the life of a Durban superstar. We get to follow him around town as he takes us on his date as well as a photoshoot. The visuals are clean and dare we say, make us want to go to Durban just to hang out with him.
Peep the video below and tell us what you think!
