“The Art of Making Music is simultaneously an outlet for personal expression and a gift of self to the world. My music is an expression of my life-journey and the influences and circumstances that have shaped me and my world view. Whether the tempo is fast or slow, the tone angry or soft, the content deep or light, my underlying sound is always HARD, BANGING and PROVOCATIVE, touching both thought and emotion, and forever danceable.
My music springs from the evocative memories of the sounds of various musical genres, especially Kwaito, RnB, Soul, Hip-Hop and House.
With the birth of “Get Tipsy”, I aimed to create a new sound that will challenge and extend South African Hip-Hop to further creative heights.
On this project I express Love through the intermingling of feel-good summer vibes, powerful Hip-Hop Beats, festive moments, and strong melody. I call this “Mohlakanyo”, a new musical sub-genre, meaning, ‘The fusion of South African genres to create an exciting new sound, mixed, stirred and baked under the blazing Burgersfort sun.’ This is the music I love to listen to and the music I love to make.
It took so much hard work to put this Ep together and I would like to thank all my people who supported me with a special shout out to Brigid Schutz(HipHoperNation), Chealex Mpanza (Street Warm Entertainment) and Kea (Artizens ZA) through the making of Summer Love.” -Slabsta
