Maraza aka Mr Spillion has called his latest single, Phansi Phezulu, a summer smash. Only he knows why he chose to drop it when Winter is Coming (Shout out, Game of Thrones)
Tribal is also on this number, laying down the hook & the first verse. Maraza enters after & has on an auto-tune drawl telling us that he’s getting his by any means.
The beat sounds like it was made in a beach cottage in the summertime with a Mimosa in hand. Nice one, Fennesse Beats, nice one.
This is an unconventional “get that money” track, due to the laid backness of the song.…Read More

Mondo Dusk is no stranger to this here website. We reviewed his Born Again EP one time. Now he has come back with a bass heavy number.
G2G has got Mondo on a global state of mind. So much that he needs to tell his girl that he gotta go.

Formed in 2013 in Alberton, Defy Theory is a rock band from Johannesburg, South Africa. Consisting of 5 members; Gareth Cairncross on lead vocals, Franna Nel and Daniel Bronkhorst on guitars, Renier Lillie on drums, and Justin Visagie on the bass guitar.
Defy Theory want to offer something unique and different to what is currently out there, specifically in the rock genre. The name Defy Theory is inspired by them not wanting to be tied down to a certain style within the genre itself. DT say they also don’t deliberately try to make every song they write and record sound “different” but rather they let the song evolve and take on its’ own identity.…Read More
It does not take long for one to turn up to Thixo Onofefe. As soon as Anatii goes “Hayi hayi hayi hayi!”, it’s game over chief.
The music video for Thixo Onofefe was directed by Anatii himself with Jitten Ramlal handling the picture duties & the art direction is credited to Tamzyn Botha.
If you were not familiar with the concept of Thixo Onofefe (translated to God of Grace in Xhosa) you would think the theme of this video is witchcraft. That would be an unfair judgement to make even though the witchcraft elements do pop up more than once.…Read More

SARZ, being the dope ass producer that he is, provides a upbeat Afrobeats soundbed.
