“Amantombazane” hitmakers, MFR Souls, are the sort of DJ duo you need on your radar at all times.
“Love You Tonight” is their third single of 2019 and the deep-house DJs have joined forces once again with the lauded DJ Maphorisa, Kabza De Small and even reeled in the talents of Akulaleki vocalist Sha Sha to ramp things up just a little more.
Hot off the press, the duo has been navigating the vaguely uncharted waters of amapiano – the new wave of house music which is crashing on the shores of SA’s dancefloors. It’s an experimental kwaito-esque style. Oozing synth, chiming jive, and a rhythm driven percussive beat drives the cruising track home.
The video is desaturated and diversive. Broad, expansive shots of their performance in a flat desert landscape counter retro-style footage of interpretive dance, and highway quarrels between lovers. It slips from an easy and pleasing juxtaposition of imagery from wild expanse to a club performance scene – all flashing lights and moving bodies.
These guys have their debut EP dropping in early November and it couldn’t come at a better time because ke summer boss.
