Best Of: South African House #2

Best Of: South African House #2
Bottomline Kenya

Yes, it’s about that time we shared what was on our playlist as regards house and kwaito music from the Southern part of the Motherland. There have been quite a number of new msanzi tunes from the usual suspects casing a bit of a buzz. We also have a few interesting remixes to showcase and tracks from much earlier in the year. Let’s get into it then.

Mi Casa – Jika

Well, Mi Casa dropped their sophomore album (aptly named Su Casa) around a month ago. I think Jika is the first single off the album – it has some nice visuals to go along with the celebration of sound!

Mafikizolo ft. May-D – Happiness

Riding off the massive success of  Khona the duo are back with another offering from their Reunited album called Happiness. It features Nigerian artist May-D who adds a *bit* of an interesting touch. Looks like the collaboration really rubbed off on the Naija star because he went and dropped a house-ish track of his own called Get Down with the help of super-producer Oskido.

DJ Ganyani & FB – Xigubu

Another massive tune from DJ Ganyani that almost gives Khona a run for its money as for the hottest track this year.

Liquideep – Welcome Aboard

First single off the lads’ latest album, really smooth, really soulful.

DJ Cleo – Mbizo Rocker

Off his latest Eskhaleni 9 album, this is a remix of an old classic Imbizo by Phuzekhemisi. Kick ass job from DJ Cleo.

Big Nuz – Hawaii

Black Motion ft. Nape – That Lazy Song

Busiswa ft. Oskido & Uhuru – Ngoku

The names on that collabo alone should tell you the track is a guaranteed banger.

Black Coffee ft. Zakes Bantwini – Take It All Off

Black Coffee hooks up  with Zakes Bantwini (who graced July’s Blankets & Wine) and they have something soulful an sexy up their sleeves.

Rihanna – Stay (Uhuru Remix)

Rihanna’s Stay gets a nice reworking from none other than Uhuru himself.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo – Homeless (Chris Sen & Euphonik Bootleg)

Really good remix of a classic.
