Jimmy Gait – Huratete (GetMziki Exclusive ***)

Gospel sensation Jimmy Gait has been on the uprise for the last 3 years since he released his hot Gospel single in 2008 titled Wakati which was off his debut album Muhathara. Funny enough I had heard wakati but I didn’t think much of it – thats just my personal take. But apparently Nairobi was crazy up in arms for that track (I’ve thrown it here just for the amusement factor and to compare and contrast wakati with this Huratete track).

I’ve been playing Huratete for a few days now, and while its not a new song I think its one of those tracks that will be around for a while because it has a timeless beat. The lyrical content and deliver is up to par (as much as auto tune is in play, or some sort of voice enhancer). I think Jimmy was in the hit Kenyan/ MTV feature film “SHUGA” partly with that other character called Leo (funny enough all jamas called Leo are handsome jamas ha ha ha ha). That Leo guy on SHUGA really sumbuad some chiles as I understand he was the hottie of the documentary. Either way its just nice to always know your nemesis is representing your name clan in good light. Anyway I digress. Here is Jimmy’s hit track.

ps. Does anyone know what HURATETE means?

Like I had promised, I will be showcasing a new mix every Monday in the month of October. A lot of people have been hitting me up requesting some songs on the mixes, so people might notice some “old” tracks in the track listing. In this era, where every body wants to be “Mr Exclusive”, I decided to go aganist the norm and include a “back in the day” track by Tony Nyadundo.

In the first mix, I showcase some songs that are driving the streets crazy like “Finje Finje” by Mr T (Kenya) and “Mtimanyongo” by Shaa Feat Langa(Tanzania). The second mix has a couple of requests, but I also showcase the gospel anthem “Niko Na reason” by Holy Dave and Eko Dida that is a straight club banger. To all the people out there who are still doubting that “Gospel got Swagger too”, check out this lyrics to the song. Enjoy!!!!

“Hakuna kitu ngumu kwa Jesus
anaweza kutuona He can see us
kama aliokoa wanaume 10 K
anaweza okoa wanaume TMK
na TOK, waseme, its OK, its OK
devil nitoke, nitoke”

Brand New: Juliani – Something More (GetMziki Exclusive ****)

Musyoka has been hard at work lately considering his Shop – Decimal Media has quite abit of talent to work on, Musyoka produces for the whose who market in Kenya. Nikki, PUnit, Nameless, Klear Kut, Peter Miles, Ukoo Fulani the list would be too long to publish here. However he also works on exclusive deals such as this one – to my understanding he is working on Julianis album titled – Mtaa Mentality.

This track is the single off that album, although there have been other tracks flying around the airwaves and the internet. This here is the exclusive never heard before and only available (well for now – on GetMziki, which is why we put the Exclusive next to the track and our star rating system). Truthfully the first week I got the track I had to put it on heavy rotation and then let it chill for a few days. The reason I did this is to better understand where this GOSPEL music is going. I am increasingly getting disturbed. Its either I am having a hard time embracing this new genre or I am having a harder time accepting the fact that Gospel music can be funky.

Gospel music in Kenya to me seems to be a fad, I personally think its something new, something that seems to be generating some traction and revenue for a few people and therefore means many people can capitalize on this market. Honestly Ive never recieved or heard so much music in my life – Over the last 8 months I cant even remember the artists names. I mean just take a quick glance at Kenyan Gospel – http://www.kenyangospel.com/. And tell me what you think.

Anyway let me relax – This track is fire… Musyoka as usual doesn’t disappoint, but am so conflicted will I listen to this track in a club, with a heineken in my hand??? you know I compare these artists to the Kirk Franklin’s of the US… Although personally I adore and listen to the Marvin Sapp’s of this world, Marvin’s album is on heavy rotation on my ipod – but see Marvin Sapp is not anything you listen to and want to dance, its music you listen to and want to go to church… maybe am just a conflicted soul – 🙂 Enjoy the track here

This is Juliani’s New single…. ka exclusive! its in his new album – mtaa mentality.
