DJ Kaydee – Lethal Kenyan Hip Hop 1 Mix (Mixtape Fridays)

Kaydee has been featured on the site before with his mixes. When most djs are following each other on the type of mixes, I tend to ONLY listen to specific types of mixes. Here is an excerpt when we featured Kaydee and how he avoid the “group mentality” by having dope mixes that few djs can do.
“The whole Genge/Kapuka and pop mixes has been done – there is an over saturation of so many Similar mixes floating around the internet in one form or the other. So whats going to be your differentiator? I have told the same thing to a couple of out DJs I like out there, I keep telling them its too cloudy out there you need to clear things out by being one of the few DJs who can stand out.”

This Kenyan Hip Hop Mix cleary makes Kaydee stand out. This has been on constant repeat in my car the last few months. A tracklisting is also available for all those die hard fans who love knowing what they are listening too.

K South – Kubaff (GetMziki Exclusive ***)


K-South fans will be happy to know that Doobiez and Bamboo entered a Studio recently and started a long journey to their official album. K-south represents a very important part of Kenyan hiphop history, but like all great things, they had to part ways find themselves and then ultimately find a way to get back together to make classic hits.

To date one of my favorite tracks and lines are on a track called Kapuka this – Kapuka that. The first line was just classic – BAMBBBBOOOO!!! “Hii Beat ni phat, kama Blaze, ama kama sukuma wiki na mayonesee, ama kama Lydia Abura na Victor Seii wakiingia kwa gari pamoja” I mean no one at the time had the audacity to just play with words and not worry about offending anyone. In fact one of the first few dis tracks was by Bamboo dissing the Kibukosyaz over some money deals – back then Kenyan hip-hop was real. It felt good – when people put their emotions and passions in the music and not really the monetary fulfilment of the music.

So I am excited about this project, I look at these two as folks who have nothing to prove lyrically or economically. They simply will be making just good music – Cant wait, I cant wait. And if this single is anything to go by – then I am ready for the EP.

Pah One – Ghetto/I Wanna Get Paid (**GetMziki Next Artists to Watch)

Pah One is a music outfit representing Tanzania. I’ve been bumping to their music for close to one year but have never really had the urge to showcase them for a number of reasons. One, is that people would think I was trying to push the group and two is that I wanted to see if they were a “passing” cloud or not. The past one year has seen them moving from their local showcases to a wider audience.

Pah One is a music group from Tanzania which makes different genres of music, that is from hiphop to pop, rap and so much more. Pah one which has 4 members Igwee Damas who is a rapper, writer and dancer. Also known as the inviting point of the group. Ola More Karisma who is a rapper, singer and songwritter but also well known as the dancer and the perfomer. Nah reel Mkono who is a great music producer and won many hip hop artists music awards in Tanzania,he is also the major producer of the group,song writer, singer and rapper. Aika Calvin Marealle who is the only lady in the group with an amazing voice, she is a singer, song writter and also a rapper.This group comprises of great talents and we believe they will reach destinations just to present their talents and specially their country.

One thing I love about the group is that they can combine pop, rap, techno or dancehall whether it’s in their choice of beats or lyrics and flow seamlessly. They’ve also created their own lane which is unprecedented and rarely seen in Tanzania. They are the group that will be doing amazing things in 2013. Pah one are still on that journey but the records they have will definitely make the doubters become believers.

Camp Mulla – Feel No Pain (GetMziki Exclusive ***)

Camp Mulla

I need to drop this sick Camp Mulla track – I will sum this up as quick as I can.

I am an avid follower of producers, I think following producers for me makes more sense than following artists – I think 65% of Camp Mulla's successes is the guy behind their sounds. All songs are well arranged and provide a different version of Kenya that many folks haven't heard.

I mean this is not Kapuka, its not Genge, its not

Hiphop – its just its own category. Dude reminds me of 40 (the man behind Drakes current success). 40 came out with a sound that just changed the music industry permanently. Musyoka, P-Funk and the likes did this in their time. But there is something different about Kibukosya (K,Cous) sound… maybe its just me but real talk listen to all Camp Mulla songs and you cant help but feel the harmony and the mood.

Anyway I love this jam – play it loud.
