Sauti Sol – Sura Yako

We all know Sauti Sol can make great dope records. We also know that through their musical journey we voiced strong “No’s No’s” with some of their releases. “Sura Yako” is their latest offering and with releases like this one with great production, cool subject and smooth vocals makes me feel like they are back.

The songwriting is great and while there’s still no word on whether all this new music is part of a larger project, we will keep everyone out there updated on the groups next release.

MixMasterL – The Mix Lounge [ Every Praise ]

The Mix Lounge [ Every Praise ]

I try and find the out of the box dj mixes out there since it seems most of the djs out there have similar playlists on their mixes. So when I get such mixes they go straight to my playlist. Mix Master Lenny goes out of the box with this recently released Gospel mix that spans hits from Ron Kenoly, Micah Stampley, Daddy Owen, Bahati, Kaberere, Piston and many more. According to Lenny, “I’ve had requests for a gospel mix and I decided to enlist their help on this mix, I hope you’re uplifted and blessed.

This mix is a must download mix for for all ages and any music fan out there. Lenny goes seamlessly through the various records in the mix while maintaining a nice balance of variety. For the complete tracklisting and more mixes from him check out his soundcloud page here.

Mumalala Feat Octopizzo – Paper Chasing

10520652_474123746024266_4220678021270724290_n

With so many artists out there, we always have to introduce some of them to everyone out there the way they would prefer. From her Facebook page, Mumala Maloba is a singer songwriter who has begun to cause a stir within the crop of young musicians in Nairobi. Having come from a musical background , she started her musical journey very young. By age 6 she was participating in Christmas musicals and carols begun writing songs at the age of 10. Her 2nd grade teacher called her a young ‘Miriam Makeba’, but Mumala had never heard of her until she discovered her music and fell in love:Currently studying Law at Middlesex University, Mumala is also definitely one of the female vocalists to look out for in the coming months.

Joining Mumalala over Fancy Fingers(Polycarp) Sol Ent production is added guest Octopizzo who in my opinion dropped a lazy uninspired verse. However, “Paper Chasing” is a smooth laid-back song that deserves a few spins.

Feel free to disagree in the comments below.

Spacio – Moyo Wangu

spacio_img

It’s funny Spacio is actually the name of a really small Toyota car in Africa, so I am hoping Spacio is not really looking at himself as a small fish. I got this track from Spacio a few months ago but truthfully there is just too much music to go through these days. I’ve eventually found a formula to sample and listen to all these tracks and behold Spacio made it through to my ears. Spacio is a new artists from Tanzania and from the sounds of it, he is on the right track to be competing with the big boys.

To me this is a feel good mellow record that content-wise seemed to resonate well with me.

Enjoy.

K NEL feat Jae Rich – Vera Shindika

KNEL is on it again with some new track killing it on this wordplay using Vera sindika. I was so tempted to put up a picture or Vera Sindika but I am going to struggle and be PG 13 as GetMziki is a family website lol. Anyway there is some good content here and good message for some folks to take into account. I really like the wordplay on VERA SHINDIKA LMFAO – ha ha ha Uso nyeupe, shingo nyekundu. Bottom line is stay true to who you are!

Stella Mwangi F/ Kristoff & Khaligraph Jones – Biashara (Remix)

wpid-1405669511_5631_b

We first featured the original “Biashara” record from STL a few years ago. On this remix she enlists Kristoff & Khaligraph Jones to lay down a few 16’s on their take on the whole “biashara” wave.

The remix is a good record but the timing on releasing the remix and video was poorly executed.

GetMziki – Breaking Records Promo Only August 2014 Edition

Promo_Only_600

With so many artists and tons of records being released on a weekly basis, it’s sometimes so hard to fully enjoy and digest records. Added with the hundred of records we receive from artists, we started having a monthly showcase of songs that we sifted through to find the cream of the crop that we believe deserve a few spins. The result is a 18-track compilation with a few bonus tracks.

That is an excerpt of the last time we had the last breaking records edition. “We showcase tons of records on a weekly basis and with everyone being busy with their daily lives, we decided to start showcasing records that are exclusive releases, chart setters, songs that will be future hits, present hits and everything else in between. Consider this as a music playlist to keep you abreast on what’s popping especially in the East African music scene.”

Mic Lon feat Ben Pol – Nitarudi

Anyone who knows me, knows I follow producers more than i follow artists. I think there is a big art in how music is compiled, presented and essentially mastered. I’ve spent endless hours with producers in studios and in person, so when I hear new music, initially I steer towards the sound. When Mike sent me this track the first thing I was thinking was damn thats a sick beat, so the fact that he delivered on the vocal/lyrics I think the production is timam!

Enjoy this brand new music from Tanzania, with a projected album release date around December 2014

Daddy V – Wine for me

Daddy_V_Wine_For_Me_Img
