Mlindo The vocalist finally unleashes the visuals for hit song Macala featuring Kwesta, Sfeesho & Thabsie
If ever there was a song for the festive season it is Macala and we have Mlindo The Vocalist to thank for that. The song has been trending since it dropped 3 months ago and it is fair to say that this is one of the favourites from his debut album, Emakhaya.
It has already garnered over 1 million streams on YouTube. And with the album reaching gold status, Mlindo is definitely the flavour for 2018.
Macala features the sizzling Thabsie, the award winning Kwesta and the fresh voice of Sfeesho, Mlindo’s younger brother. The video for the song dropped yesterday and it is already doing the most on YouTube.
On Macala he sings about good times and the vibe is actually transporting us all the way to December. This is the type of joint that has so much potential to be a wedding song- it’s crafted especially for the streets.
Kwesta brings his A game while Thabsie is always crisp and refined. Sfeesho is a refreshing voice on this joint and this is our first introduction to him.
The video for Macala does not disappoint. It is shot in the township and shows us what it means to have fun in the hood when you’re young, beautiful and black in South Africa. We see them get ready for a lit night out and getting picked up by Kwesta who takes them to an underground party.
December is officially here!
Peep the video below!
NEW MUSIC: Vitu Takes Us Into His Thoughts In Narcolepsy Part ii
Cape Town based Hip Hop artist, Vitu, drops new song titled Narcolepsy Part ii
It’s been a minute since we featured new music from the gents from Arcade Music. One third of the funky Hip Hop collective, Vitu, recently dropped new music. Titled Narcolepsy Part ii, the new single gives us a little glimpse into Vitu’s state of mind.
He states that he thinks this is right time to share this song. With the end of the year approaching, self reflection is key before we begin a new chapter.
“I thought it was the right time of year to put it out as its quite a introspective look into my thoughts on how the year has been ‘til this point and there’s no better time to reflect on it as opposed to now.”
Vitu is not a stranger to this platform as we have featured him a couple of times. And all of the projects that he has released to date have done more than impress us. Among the songs we loved from him were This Time Next Week, Tape Deck Side A and Papers.
All of these songs were not only well written and highly descriptive but they are have a factor that only Vitu provides in his music. And that is he is able to create a safe space in his music, so intimate and a little consuming.
This is the type of music that’s suitable for long drives to nowhere for no particular reason at all except to just be away. Narcolepsy Part II carries this exact same vibe.
He raps about wanting to find a balance in his life. The duality of dreaming of a life that is ideal but also battling his demons and navigating his way out of his misery. But his hunger and drive for this life he dreams about is what keeps him pushing and this is the sense of hope we get from the song. One day it will all make sense.
