A few weeks ago we had a face to face interview with one of the country’s most talented producers, SPeeKa. This interview was meant to profile artists who are doing the most in their own circles and who are actually bringing a change to the industry in their own profound way.
SPeeKa has been producing music for the longest time and has the impressive resume to prove it. He primarily focuses on Kasi Rap but has produced other genres of music including Hip Hop and House music.
SPeeKa is also a geek when it comes to making music and it’s clear that the Protea Glen native lives for his craft. He has released countless projects, including Organized Grime which dropped last year and has produced for a number of artists with The Soweto Tshepiso EP being one of the latest projects he produced.
He also founded and produces a series called Sotra Cyphers which sees a variety of rappers come through every week and drop the hardest bars on even harder beats. The series showcases raw talent with most of the emcees on the series showing real skill and a genuine love for the artistry of rapping. If anything, Sotra Cyphers is a way to keep the art and culture of rap alive and hopefully bring it to the mainstream, little by little.
SPeeKa has completed work on his latest project, SPeeKa Presents: Ten Tuesdays Vol. 1, where he plans on dropping 1 track every Tuesday from today, 30 Jan until 03 April. The first track from the project is titled Gcwala and it features Infektist, Etcetera Inkunzi Emnyama and Jef. Peep it here.
