Featuring Vusi Nova, Veezo View ft. Gemini Major, Serati and more…
South African soul songstress, Serati, switches up the tempo with a list of remixes for “Why Do You Tempt Me” – the lead single from her “Rapture EP“.
The set features reworks from Medsoul, Lancaster, DJ Romain and Giorgio Bassetti.
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of.Botswana’s own Veezo View drops the visuals for his collabo with super producer Gemini Major titled “The Most”.
Lyrically, the song is about coming to the big city to live your dreams. In this case, the big city is Johannesburg.
The city is the star of the video as it provides the perfect backdrop for a collision of contrast; from the affluent, new highrise buildings of Sandton to the decaying inner city.
Through the use of CCTV and dash-cam footage sourced online, director Nate Thomas, depicts some of the criminal activities committed in the dog-eat-dog city in the name of survival.
Grounded by the roots.
Saint Frederick lets us know how far he has come and how far he is going to go in “Represent“.
On this song, the rapper pays homage to his Congolese roots – including a reference to Fally Ipupa – over a heavy bass.
Summertime in the sun.Quata Budukusu drops his latest video entitled “Sangolo“, featuring Wyre.
Directed by Deska Torres, the video is a pool party filled with fun and games.
Road trip Vybz!
Indie-pop band, Sutherland, present their brand new EP – “Rainmaker“.
The EP comes at just the right time as many people will be embarking on road trips in the warm summer air and this EP is the perfect addition for any travel or beachfront playlist.
Standout tracks include the title track as well as “Moon”.
It is FINALLY HERE!For a while now on social media, we’ve been hinting on a new project that we have been working on called Level Up and now we are proud to bring you the very first episode of the series.
In the pilot we touched based with the platinum-selling artist, Vusi Nova, who gave us some insights into his latest album “Manyan ‘Nyan” and some of the worst advice he has ever received among other things.
As the youngest contestant on season 14 of Idols South Africa, Yanga had to fight hardest for her place on the show and the 16-year-old pupil has done pretty well for herself.
All her hard work through the competition has led to her first single, “Scars (All Over Me)” as well as a place in the grand finale.
“Scars” is a tour de force power ballad that showcases her vocal ability.
Yanga has proven to be dedicated to both her craft and education to the extent that she arranged long-distance learning with her school from the time of her audition.
A fight for love.
One travels long distances on the journey towards their dreams. One case in point would be Thato who travelled 1 250 km from his hometown of Postmasburg to Cape Town for the Idols South Africa auditions
and 10 months later he drops his debut single “Blow by Blow“.
The song is an upbeat house track with spit-fiery verses.
Thato’s journey and nice-guy charm have inspired many, leading him to be voted as one of the Top 2 finalists for the title of season 14 winner which will be announced at the grand finale this Sunday night on Mzansi Magic.
Dynamite comes in small packages.
As cliché as the statement may ring, it really is true and Thando proves this through in her debut single “Wasting Time“.
The song starts off on a mellow tip with the backing of an acoustic guitar before blasting off with some tropical house flavours.
The 19-year-old powerhouse vocalist has come a long way since her audition on Idols South Africa.
Viewers have tuned in weekly to watch her evolve from a timid singer to a more confident performer who made it to season 14’s top 3.
The ones that got away…
