Talented up and coming rapper Humphrxy is out with a new single. The Durban-based artist celebrates Steez Bonani’s birthday, his producer, by releasing Last Seen featuring label mate and fellow rapper, Trill.Gxd.
Last Seen is the 22 year olds first single off his rumoured upcoming debut project FOR THE FEAR OF GOD. When describing the single, Humphrxy says, “It’s a dedication to the youth… the kids who’ve been shun out because of how they act or behave.”
He further states that this is the song for the outlaws, the non conformists who make up their own rules, “I’ve been through some things that have made me realize that the world expects you to act a certain way and if you don’t you’ll get thrown outside. This is the song for all those outsiders. The kids who feel bad about themselves because they’ve been made to believe how they see the world is whack. F*** that.”
The joint is fresh and has a laid back about it. It is not trappy but has the exciting bass line and the weird percussion which make this a song that you can both vibe to while listening to. Last Seen is not too far a departure from what Humphrxy does which is dope because this sound is not only fresh but it’s different.
This isn’t Humphrxy’s first release, he rapper has released a few other singles this year, most notably Dragon and Phrxy Drugs which are both produced by SteezBonani. The two singles have made airwaves on radio, with DJ LèSoul praising Phrxy Drugs which currently sits on MoveHipHop SA’s 031 Top 10 chart.

Tresor collaborates with Beatenberg
Tresor collaborates with Beatenberg to create their Aphrodite!
TRESOR announces the track list and featured artists for his upcoming 3rd studio album, Nostalgia, along with the release of the album’s second single, “Aphrodite”, which is a collaboration with Cape Town trio Beatenberg.
The cleverly titled Nostalgia takes the listener on a journey through TRESOR’s musical upbringing, and the 13 track album also features some of the biggest names in the game such as Super Mega AKA; multi-award winning trio The Soil; Kenyan Pop group Sauti Sol; contemporary singer Msaki; Kwaito rapper Kwesta; DRC singer Lokua Kanza; Afro Pop group Mafikizolo and Beatenberg.
I am truly thrilled to share this collaboration with my Beatenberg brothers. The song was written and produced in Cape Town throughout summer last year. Matthew and I wanted to create a musical piece that reflects the sounds that we both grew up listening to. We both love Greek mythology and history, so we wanted to play with idea of falling deeply in love with Aphrodite, an ancient Greek goddess associated with love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. We had so much fun making this song and I think we created something truly magical. Excited to share it with the world
I am grateful to have been able to work with Tresor again; I’ve learned a lot from him and it’s always a pleasure to hang out and make music together. This song has been ‘in the works’ for a while and I’m very fond of it. I remember driving on the highway at night after a session listening to the rough version and feeling a particular way. I looked forward then to when other people would get to hear it – now that’s happening and I’m very glad
Nostalgia is set to drop in January 2019 on all music platforms.
