Bel’Yv – “Sensation”
Cameroonian songstress, Bel’Yv, welcomes us into her world of love on her new body of work, ‘Sensation‘. The record consists of eight tracks that explore multiple forms of love (from romance to familial). To celebrate the EP drop, the singer also unveils the visuals for the lead single ‘Je Te Suivrais‘.
KZN-born and bred DJ LeSoul has spun discs behind the decks for the past seven years. Ever since her current single, ‘Amabele’ (ft. Deep Narratives, TNS & BlaQRhythm) dropped, the radio personality has been causing quakes on the dancefloors. This qualifies it more than enough to provide a visual treat.
Straffitti & GCL3F – “ENDLESS“
Straffitti and longtime collaborator GCL3F drop their five-track collaborative EP, ‘ENDLESS‘. The mini-album is a product of trap soul and R&B influences centred around Straffitti’s situationships.
Sio – “FEATURES”
Sio set out the rollout of her album, ‘FEATURES‘ with a handful of enticing singles. Finally, the day to steep into the sonic waters of this work is here. ‘FEATURES’ switches the convention of vocalists being the featured artists on house tracks and instead producers are now following her lead.
The record’s billing includes the likes of Dwson, KidFonque, CharlesWebster and more.
Ghanaian rapper, Kweku Smoke, readies to present the visuals for ‘Let It Go’ (ft. Emtee). The joint is taken from his current album ‘Snoop Forever’ which is in memory of his late brother.
The clip premieres on YouTube on Monday, 26 April 2021 at 13:00 WAT.
Phantom Steeze – “Kuku”
With winter fast approaching, Phantom Steeze has a burner, ‘Kuku‘, to keep fans toasty throughout the season. The cut interpolates a Mzansi house classic.
MOJO – “LESSON TEACHER”
MOJO returns from his brief hiatus some goodies in the form of a two-pack track, ‘LESSON TEACHER‘. On the title track, the Chop Life Crew member borrows from drill influences while ‘WOWO‘ builds its foundation on afrobeats.
It’s a give-and-take situation around ‘Uyanginika‘. Afrikan Roots drops the official video for their latest single featuring DJ Buckz.
Muneyi – “Makhulu”
Reigning Afropunk Battle of the Bands champ, Muneyi delivers his debut album ‘Makhulu‘ – a labour of love for his grandmother. The album reflects on the lessons she has taught him.
Ahead of its official release on 7th May 2021, Muneyi presents ‘Tshifhiwa‘ as his latest single.
