P Unit feat Collo – You Guy (***GetMziki Exclusive)

The Kenyan trio P-Unit are slowly builds anticipation for thier second official album Wagenge Hao Tena with the release of a brand single 'You Guy”. Missing from our pages since we last posted the club anthem Fresh with Klear Kut, the trio return with a bang. The trio's style and wordplay combined with a feature from Collo and a Decimal records beat bring us a track fused with some dancehall, hip-hop and Genge.

According to their press release ” Bon eye said, “Our music prowess and choice to pursue musical career was influenced a lot by the musical trends of the 90s and so with this track we want to take our fans back into that era through a clever blend of ‘Ragamuffin’ and our ‘Genge’ style of music.” P Unit is set to drop their second album “Wagenge Hao Tena” in October this year. “To launch our second albu

m, we plan to have select local and international tours to engage with our fans who have continued to support our music over the years” concludes Frasha.

Why lie, P-Unit and Collo are creating some of the most diverse, dope and most most innovative work the music industry has seen in a minute. To the whole team, I hope there is much much more where this came from.

To all the music fans out there, I wanna see if people know their music. What song has been sampled in the new P-Unit track.

Certified hit single, no doubt about it. I can see djs all over adding this to their Serato playlist like yesterday:). We have the instrumental and acapella, so for all the producers and re-mixers out there hit us up for the exclusives.

Collo Ft. Sauti Sol- Dreamer (Tawala) (**GetMziki Exclusive)

The best thing about Collo is that you never know what to expect from him. He’s always pushing the boundaries and is never afraid to show his different musical and human personas. Listening to “Dreamer” a personal dedication to his daughter, Collo proves that being heavy in the streets and making hit records still leaves space for letting fans into his personal life.

Collo had this to say whe he sent the GetMziki team the track. ” It’s been approximately 1 year since God blessed me with my Daughter Tawala. Attached is a song I have done dedicated to her and I have to share it with you.”

Sauti Sol lend their vocals on this tribute track that was produced by Ulopa Ngoma. On a side note, Collo can we get the “King wa Rap” album.

Collo – Hodi Hodi (GetMziki Exclusive ***)

There is something dramatic happening in the music industry across the board, some artists are catching a hissy fit because other artists who claim to be rappers are now singing. This phenomenon has been sweeping the world in one form or another and with this track I think Collo is no exception to the rule.

Here is the thing, I think personally most people who dont like rappers who sing, are probably more upset at the fact that they actually sound good. Its not that rappers never sang in the past, its just that it took one damn good rapper to make the singing stand out on his own tracks. DRAKE is a perfect example of this phenomenon.

When I listen to this track, Collo is singing throughout the whole track, essentially this is territory that folks like Nameless, Mr. Lenny used to occupy – its new territory for him but to be honest its FRESH. The track is solid. Production wise Alex Mugenda aka BIG SOUL did enough justice to the track. Additional vocals were blessed by a soulful sexy chile called Ammelina Mwenesi if y’all recall she was one of the TPF (Tusker Project Fame) contestants a while back.

Anyway am happy with artists who want to challenge the NORM.. But Collo lets put this album together its long over due…

Collo – Huduma ya Kwanza (GetMziki Exclusive ***)

Collo & DJ Edu

I am probably going to be in trouble for posting this song here – but F*&k it this is a CRAZY joint needs to be loved. I had a previous version of the same track but the quality was pathetic so there was no need to post it up here. However when this CDQ landed on my laps – I knew I had to push it regardless of a few minor details here and there.

So here are the facts – Track is produced by ULOPA NGOMA, blessed by the one and only Collo (King wa rap) from Kleptomaniacs. I am still trying to figure out who blessed the hook/vocals coz that cat is off the chains. But honestly this song is FIRE – it doesn’t matter how many ways you dissect it and digest it. This is a banger in more ways than one. Ulopa is on fire – the arrangement of this track sits very well with the crazy new sound coming from the East Coast in the US currently. The drums the beat maps. All so familiar sound, once you add a little genge/sheng and English its just a classic.

I will spare you with my praises please put your headphones on if you are listening to this at work – play it loud. Collo you did it again on this one. Big ups. Big ups to all the cats at Msanii Records also…

Madtraxx feat Porgie, DJ Stylez, Frasha, Prezzo, Sanaa, Collo, Bamzigi, Nameless, Amp.. – Big Shot (Remix) (GetMziki Exclusive ***)

Let me make a few things clear – there is a track thats being held hostage by me called GET DOWN by MADTRAXX that track is fire. I was given to sample the goodness and honestly my hands and fingers are itchy to release it. Madtraxx composed this track sometime last year but its part of his upcoming album so he asked as to “please” hold it for a moment while they wrap up the album – but that NGOMA is FIYAAAAH.

SIDE NOTE: Madtraxx, I heard that track on a mix DJ Joe put together, am beginning to feel very un-exclusive George, and thats not a good thing ..*smiles* // I thought GetMziki was a “Big Deal”

Moving right along – it seems this is the month of the mega remixes. It may appear everyone is trying to out do the other with how many artists you can get on a remix. Rumor has it this track had so many heavy weights that the original song was actually TEN minutes long. CodeRed then decided to cut the track down in order to keep it radio worthy. If this is true I would like to get my hands on the original ten minute song, real talk FRANCO and akina LES WANYIKA performed tracks for 13 minutes so whats 10 minutes. Lets sample the goodness and let us make the decisions of who should have stayed and who didnt deserve to be on the track.

My take on this remix – FRASHAAAAAAA!!! He killed it – everyone else wasn’t really necessary, especially Sanaa and Nameless, I mean I get it but nah…these vocalist should have been on their own. Like an R&B version of BIG SHOT… However that FRASHA guy.. WAAA!!… FRASHA killed it, PREZZ came out okay not as powerful as he did in the Chapaa remix. Collo was just okay… BUT BAMZY ha ha ha ha … I cant lie actually if it wasn’t for the fact that I haven’t heard anything from Bamzy for a while I really woulda been like this cat sounds like Bamzy. Getting Bamzy on this track was probably the highlight of the track (and the highlight of my year). I mean I just miss the whole NAZ, Bamzy, Wyre – ama its just me??? I appreciate the fact that he just bared his all, he gets real on the track ” took too much coke now am clean.. I want my old spot” I love that … Bamzy.. congratulations on the recovery.. looking forward to the supermans return…

Anyway listen to this BIG SHOT. THIS IS INDEED A BIG SHOT REMIX –

Brand New: P-Unit feat Collo and Blavion – Rush hour

punit_rushhour

The perfectionist he is – Musyoka sent this song last week, however over the weekend he was listening to the track at a popular nightclub and somehow heard some mixing that was off. So he pulled the song off the record pool list in order to rectify the sound and certain portions of the track. To me the song sounded the same – I honestly can’t tell the difference but I guess thats what makes him good at what he does.

P-Unit collaborated with Collo and Blavion to pull off this exhilirating track. Immediately I heard this track I called Lovy (down in Los Angeles) and told him Lovy real talk you need to be weary – this Logombas ship is about to be rattled a little. You see to me I think there are artists who have been comfortable somewhere in a corner because no one has challenged their style. Logombas to me got bored of their style and technique – hence released the well recieved QUEEN – which has been an instant hit all over the world.

This RUSH HOUR track is pure testament that the talent in Kenya is multi versed, multi levelled and very easily replicated (I am not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing). I think also Nameless needs to watch out 🙂 First because it seems Musyoka can hack Kapuka beat anyday, but more importantly because to me P-Unit seems like one of those groups that can do anything – Right now I am definately watching out for anything they will be doing. Their debut album is definately going to be a must have…

Chap Chap ….. Kila mtu avuke na wake – RUSHHHH HOUR!!

Brand New Music : Big Pin feat Collo – Kadem


image courtesy of Homeboyz Blog

The Beast from the East – Big Pin, probably one of Kenya’s culturally diverse sensations, he always delivers the right hooks and tracks to make the mood right. After he released Terra Moss, I was done! The whole Indian flavor mixed with Ogopa kapuka sounds and youthful flutes was so engaging. And then he delivered another track called Bentemba (ps. am looking for a good quality version of this track if anyone has it please send it through mailto : leo@getmziki.com)

For me Big Pin is part of the overall Ogopa crew, style and delivery so I wouldnt expect anything less. I am still very conflicted about this song – maybe I need to listen to it a few more times, but for now enjoy it. Collo always does his job right, probably one of my top five lyricists in Kenya (i’ve watched Collo freestyle and the boy/man is sick, although his new track Mschana high class was a little off)
