The album is richly steeped in traditional isiZulu music and oration while also borrowing influences from hip hop and afrosoul.
‘Amahora‘ by Anzo & Mzukulu (ft. Bongane Sax) receives the distinction of the label’s inaugural track before the full project drops on the 28th of August 2020.
Inspired by the soundscape of a pair of African cities, DJ Lambo prepares to release ‘A Tale of Two Cities’. The 7-tracker is quite literally a trip from Lagos to Johannesburg as she exuberantly expresses in the title opener.
The appetiser for this journey is, ‘Bella‘ a collaboration alongside Lady Donli and Iyanya. Catch the full story unfold on the 21st of August 2020.
For his third release with Stay True Sounds, Radic the Myth calls on Scarless Monnie for the hilariously titled ‘Tall Man Can’t Dance EP‘.

Xplosive DJ – “Plan B”
Xplosive DJ is done and dusted with his debut EP, ‘Plan B‘. The ironically titled project is set around the premise of not having a back-up plan because of the faith you have in building something you have poured yourself into.

The full package will be unveiled on the 14th of August 2020.
