Boity Wuzdat

No one knew what to expect when Boity revealed plans to release some music not so long ago.

And on Friday the media personality finally wore her rapper tag when she unveiled her first ever single, Wuzdat, with Nasty C. The song has already shot to #1 on iTunes SA, scoring her first chart-topping hit!

In it Boity declares her entrance into the South African Hip Hop ecosystem; spitting cold trill about not recognising the competition.

The banger first surfaced on Thursday following on DJ Fresh’s Metro FM breakfast show. The radio station later shared videos of Boity having a blast in the studio as the song played, garnering some pretty impressive pre-listen reviews from fans who’ve been awaiting the release.

 

The single is a strong introduction of Boity as a rapper as she splays clean bars with confidence and a badass vibe we are only now being made privy to! The song was as highly anticipated as it was already dismissed by some long before it saw the light of day, thanks to scepticism about her then-unknown rapping abilities.

Wuzdat blasts in with 808s and trap flavoured sonic vibes, a catchy chorus and one hell of a dynamite verse by Nasty C.

Mobi Dixon's freshest offering is rich with potential to achieve both purposes of filling dancefloors this coming summer, and living beyond the constraint of seasons with instant timeless classics

Mobi Dixon has seldom misfired when it comes to putting out a solid product, a fact which rings true to South African House music.

If you’ve tapped into this sound and the niche subculture, you’ll know that its considered “expensive music” by avid followers, who are constantly on the hunt for the freshest supreme but delightful productions.

Mobi Dixon 10 Steps Head album review

And since South Africa is known to be the world’s capital of House Music, the DJs normally take years to put out new work, which must leave a lasting impression.

The House music Dj and producer returns with a 10 track project which sees him enlisting sultry vocals from a select list of SA’s finest; including Shekhinah, Donald, Samthing Soweto, the inimitable Nokwazi and amongst others JSomething). The album also showcases Mobi Dixon’s apparent high roller status, as he has been able to get quite the line up of the hottest acts in the country, such as DJ Tira, Dladla Mshunqisi and Tamara Dey.

Strategically, the best thing any artist can do is position some of the strongest works at the beginning of the album. It sets the mood and tone, which in turn influences how the listener potentially perceives the rest of the project.

Though for me, this is also a trap. It took me a while to move past the album’s title track. Shekhinah’s soulful vocals anchor Mobi Dixon’s green and mint productions in the most magical way. Admittedly, I’ve enjoyed both Mobi Dixon and Shekhinah’s works through years, and this timely collaboration struck such a cord that I had to take it to the treadmill!

“Every lesson I learned, braced me for the worst”, sings Shekhinah ss beautifully as only she can. This track establishes this album as a bevy of richly vocalised house classics that will both animate partying sessions in the looming festive and sustain relevance that will live beyond seasons, as we’ve come to see House music do over the decades. When it comes to house music, the trick to longevity lies in songs that have more than nine lives.

Please You with J’Something comes in next, and immediately upticks the level of soul this record brings. It’s a pleasure listening to good ol’ authentic South African music, especially when the richness of the work is not open to debate. J’Something’s vocal harmonies are as blissful as ever here, and they allow you to bask in the supremacy of the marriage between the Dj and the soulful vocals on this track.

Samthing Soweto’s unmatched vocal acrobatics kick in on Abantu, the next bop in what is undoubtedly a timely session for this summer. “Abantu bajaiva nabantu ababathandayo”, he sings beautifully through electric synths and Dixon’s trademark organic sounds.

Nokwazi is one of the country’s most formidable vocalist, who honed her skills doing back up vocals for some of the biggest names in the South African music industry’s biggest names. She decided to move to spotlight recently; and embracing House music, she finds herself laying down her uniquely African sounding vocals on this jam. It’s yet another dancefloor filler.

Maybe Impilo will be the album’s biggest hit on the charts; it has all the right elements. There’s Dladla Mshunqisi – the hottest voice in the Durban music scene right now, as well as details of the popular Pretoria broken-beat sound. It could also be Visa, featuring heavyweights Kwesta, DJ Tira and Nichume. It could also be both!

There’s no doubt that Mobi Dixon’s mission is to distrupt and dominate. You’ve got look out for this album!

Black Coffee, Cassper Nyovest & Shane Eagle Drop New Bops

Black Coffee, Cassper Nyovest and Shane Eagle all premiered new singles on Friday morning, and we have a lot of joy.

Black Coffee, Cassper Nyovest and Shane Eagle all premiered new singles on Friday morning, and we have a lot of joy.

Coffee bolsters his global footprint with a brand new collaborative joint with David Guetta. Entitled Drive, the midtempo dance outfit features the breezy vocals of a Delilah Montagu. It’s a chilled vibe that will come to amplify many sunsets.

Sonically, the track beams with both Black Coffee and David Guetta’s production MOs, and registers as the biggest original international collaboration for Black Coffee, whose highly anticipated album is slated for release before the end of 2018.

The We Dance Again award winning DJ and record producer has been spending much of the past two years or so working global dancefloors; a list of the world’s top stages which has included sets at Coachella and Tomorrowland. Most of the time though, Black Coffee has been based in Ibiza, Spain.

Drive is a fresh and lush prelude of the looming summer, which we’ve waited for the entire winter, thanks.

Cassper Nyovest returns with a brand new single, Gets Getsa 2.0. The Kwaito flavoured bop finds the rapper fiddling with the kwaito strings that he often messes with, as he has on a list of previous success dancefloor stories like Tsibip, Nyuku and Skelm. Spitting vast bars in vernacular always allows him to enlarge the pools he must dive into for references, resulting always in something that feels as fresh as it does nostalgic.

Gets Getsa 2.0 is the first single from Nyovest’s upcoming album; a follow up to 2017’s Thuto. It also marks yet another moment in his career when he puts his appreciation of Doc Shebeleza on display. Not only is his biggest hit of the same name, but Get Getsa is a remake of a Doc Shebeleza mid 90s kwaito classic.

Shane Eagle is preparing for his Yellow Tour. And on Friday he gave fans something new to look forward to when he premiered a new single called Gustavo.

The single comes just days after he promised fans he would be unveiling something ‘special’ at one of his shows on condition that they sold out the venue. The single artwork dabbles in some pretty dark visual themes, and has the words “Only going to talk about this one time, then going to leave in the past’ strewn above an illustration of a coffin with a visible corpse. Say something if you don’t like where this is going…

Gustavo finds Eagle seething at an unnamed rapper, many who believe is AKA. The two have had a few hardened word exchanges on social media, with word being that their mentor-student type dynamic came to a cold end when the mentor gave Yellow less than favourable reviews prior to its critically acclaimed, gold-selling and SAMA award-winning release.

Fifi Cooper Debuts Take Me Back Album; And It’s Honest

Published

on

Fifi Cooper new album 2018

Fifi Cooper on Friday liberated her first studio album since her highly publicised and explosive departure from Ambitiouz Entertainment.

Fifi Cooper Take Me Back

Aptly entitled Take Me Back, the 21 track Motswako project finds Fifi spitting cold trill about trust and betrayal, wicked schemes from people she once trusted, and the confidence gained from her victorious – albeit rough – journey back to the charts. Cooper also pitches her tent as a Motswakolista ready to be welcomed back into the scene.

She had been with the controversial label since its inception when she decided to jump ship, setting in a motion a devastating legal battle between the parties that once threatened to exhaust her very ability to access her discography.

It’s one that she lost initially; famously losing the rights to perform the music she recorded with the label, which basically consisted of her entire catalogue. A political party, the EFF, would later come to her rescue.

RELATED: OUR 2016 INTERVIEW WITH FIFI COOPER 

The last time I met Fifi Cooper her was in a control of a studio where she was to be doing a television interview about the case she had just lost against her former record label, Ambitiouz Entertainment.

I expected her to look deflated and sombre.

Yet the girl who walked in for makeup was triumphant and bubbly. She greeted everyone cheerfully and continued taking pictures.

This was mid-2016, and it seemed the rapper’s world had come crashing down. Not only was she no longer allowed to perform any of her commercial work, she was also reportedly ordered to pay all the legal fees.

Two years later we’ve got Take Me Back. In it, Fifi Cooper blends some bonafide vocals with smooth Motswako raps that she transitions back and forth between English and Setswana without losing control of her flows. The album tackles various themes; with romance and related drama adding to some of the reflections on her career.
