Fresh Flex Friday #27

Your weekly dose of must-hear tracks from SA artists.

15 Dec 2017 / Opinion / written by Angela Weickl

If you’re out in the street you can feel the electricity of December, everyone has major gees and for most, the end of the work year is so close they can almost taste it.

I’ll be doing my utmost to populate your playlist with the jams to keep you feeling great through the silly season, but be warned, the heat is a little on the big bass side this week.

Linkris The Genius – Gazi’Lam

The first single off the new Linkris KhoiSan Tzu project, touted as Afrikaap Grime, is an excursion into future grimier sounds that the artist will exploring throughout the Summer 2018 full release. While laid-back, it packs a punch. Just how we like it.

Fernando feat Raiko – Hlobo’s Lament

An homage to South African artist Nicholas Hlobo, featuring one of SA’s hip hop original dons in combination with a rising talent in the beat scene. Hlobo’s sculptures have been described as oozey, voluptuous and highly structured and this track is the perfect accompaniment.

Chee – Eddy Morphine

Fresh off a multi-city tour of the United States, with another release of dark bass magic that is receiving support from the likes of Noisia and countless other massive industry stalwarts. Chee is making waves and taking names, if only more people in SA would pay attention!

Disco – Hey Fearful Thing EP

Disco appeared back in our lives in June 2017 after a long hiatus, and has been ridiculously prolific since then. His latest release, out this past week, feature Push Push and Pasta and was released in combination with three music videos.

Dunn Kidda – Used To EP

A more soulful, thoughtful and downtempo interpretation of his signature sound, recorded at Red Bull Studios in Cape Town. Dunn Kidda has enlisted heavy weight support on the three track beauty from KYMAC and YoungstCPT. Definitely a highlight on the December release list.
