Every time Focalistic and Major League DJz join forces it’s always a glorious occasion. In the past they have dropped a few joints together including 19 Tobetsa and Skhaftin. But now, they have given the fans what they want which is a full Amapiano project titled Ase Trap Ke Pina Tsa Ko Kasi.
Major League DJz are known for their exploration of various sounds including Hip Hop, Kwaito and Afro Beats. Their interest in Amapiano is a new path that they are trying out and it looks like they are onto something.
We have spoken in detail about how fascinated we are in Focalistic’s sound and what he can do with it. The young rapper has defined his own lane and proves that he is worth his salt in this project. While we have experienced his mind state in his latest solo offering titled 18 Area, in Ase Trap Ke Pina Tsa Ko Kasi we get a whole new vibe when he is paired with other artists.
The new EP is an interesting play on different genres and sounds
Ase Trap Ke Pina Tsa Ko Kasi translates to “it’s not Trap, it’s songs from the hood” and the fusion of sounds is interesting. The EP finds a way to bring together elements of trap and low tempo dance music which has not been done before. The lyrical content is not dense but it definitely has some Kwaito influences in its delivery.
What’s fun about this EP is not only the sound but also how playful it is. It doesn’t take itself too seriously. And has an attitude of a typical guy from kasi- raw and has a laid back swagger about it.
The project is a dainty 6 tracks and features exciting artists among them Makwa, Gobibeast, Lowkeyz, Cassper Nyovest, L Techk and Skamza. Some of these artists were a refreshing surprise and we should definitely be looking forward to.
