Get to Know: South African Soul Singer Ayanda Jiya

Sounds like: the voice people struggled to hear over the chorus of those condemning South African R&B/soul to a premature death (side-eyes SAMA committee). The low-down: Ayanda Jiya is a young soulstress (with dimples) from a relatively unknown town called Klerksdorp in South Africa’s North West province. Over the last few years, she and her label TinismDotC0m have been gradually and precociously shaping the soulstress’ sound and her overall career. […]


Listen to Nyanda's 'Slippery When Wet' Remix featuring Stanley Enow

Before his nomination and eventual victory at the MTV African Music Awards, Stanley Enow had been steadily taking over the Cameroonian hip hop charts with hits such as Hein Père and TumbuBoss (Deluxe). Enow joins Nyanda of Brick N Lace fame on the remix of her debut hit Slippery When Wet. An earlier remix featured Ugandan musician Cindy Sanyu whom she likely met during a recent trip to the country.

AfriPOP it or Drop it? Major Lazer and Wiwek Remix Davido's 'Skelewu'

It’s very clear that Davido is single-mindedly chasing world domination. His trump card is the monster single Skelewu. I have it on good authority that some dance music heavies were called on to submit remixes for the track. Presumably this was the first result, a collaboration from Holland’s Wiwek and Major Lazer. It’s a fairly tame EDM’d version that’s frizz head smell… Outside “site” I little hair paper t […]

Watch 'Lagos Lullabye', Siji's New Video

Lagos Lullabye is Siji’s first single off his album Homegrown. I just got word from him that the video is out. In his own words: I’d always loved Scorsese’s Taxi Driver particularly the scene in which the protagonist, Travis Bickle drives his cab around the mean and seedy streets of New York city’s Times Square. Taking a cue from this timeless classic, I sought to take in and showcase the […]

Watch Cut_’s Translated Remix of Stromae’s 'Papaoutai'

Dutch group Cut_ has done a minimalist and more sombre English rendition of Stromae’s Papaoutai. Stromae himself posted their remake on his Facebook page with a smiley face and that we interpret as a thumbs-up. Cut_ are a live-electro or electro-live duo based in Amsterdam whose songs are “inspired by the moment”. The music nerds combine live performance (with much visual elements) and electro sounds. Sebastiaan Dutilh is the producer […]


Listen to Kwabs' New Single 'Something Right' Produced by SOHN

By this account from the Guardian, the world is ready to receive Kwabs on stage, after being repeatedly bowled over by the mixtape, EP and songs we’ve heard, mostly produced by Venice-based producer SOHN, his usual partner in soulful devastation. Their latest pairing makes one feel like apocalypse is at hand and the only refuge is Kwabs’ towering baritone as a fortress. Save us!


Listen to MNEK's 'Every Little Word'

Loyal as ever to the golden era that shaped him, my fave MNEK hovers around the 90s on this almost-single with production inspired by Teddy Riley and Rodney Jerkins. He wrote it while on tour with Rudimental, and premiered it on BBC 1Xtra on Mista Jam’s show. It’s another assured stride enroute to the album from the Virgin/EMI signee on whose every word I have been hanging since his early […]
