It’s a festival weekend in South Africa and if you’re heading out to Rocking the Daisies or In The City to see your favourite international artists, be safe and have the best time.
Keep in mind that we have incredible homegrown talent too and every Friday you can experience a selection of the newest and freshest music right here. Support local, enjoy everything.
Mnqobi Yazo – Igolide
A beautiful and radio-friendly new single from the KwaZulu-Natal singer-songwriter. You don’t need to understand what he is saying in order to relate to the beauty and emotion in his performance. A soothing and well-constructed composition that kicks off today’s selection with the correct mood and energy.
LuBOY – Hoekom Kyk Jy So Na My? feat Vito
A single pulled from LuBOY’s (Louis Minaar) new project that explores various genres of electronic music. When he did a call out for rappers to work with, Vito was one of the artists that responded positively to the search. The beats and the style are reminiscent of mid-2000s South African releases that took a lot of inspiration from the golden era of African Dope records while discovering the newest DAW plug-ins and tricks.
Andrew Sutton – Hands Up
I’m not a fan of comparing local artists to international artists but everything about this song and artist screams Justin Bieber. And I by no means intend that to be an insult. I happen to be wearing my JB t-shirt while typing this. It is just so undeniable, and the more you delve into his catalog the more you hear it. Prepare yourself for that experience and you’ll be able to enjoy this single and more.
Nasty C – God Flow ft, crownedYung
You really cannot fault Nasty C and this song has the perfect title because he does possess a God Flow. And giving a platform to up-and-coming artists makes me respect him even more. Acknowledging the next generation and taking young talent on his journey exhibits his integrity and substance. More life to Nasty C.
