Azana feat. Sun-El Musician - Ngize Ngifike

Nabozo, Saturday, 20 June 2020 22:48 (one month ago) link

Belatedly, "Your Love" is the most beautiful thing I have ever heard.

Tim F, Monday, 22 June 2020 02:11 (one month ago) link

All three of these Azana singles are great.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Monday, 22 June 2020 20:07 (one month ago) link

dig the light touch of Jill Scott "He Loves Me" interpolation in Ngize Ngifike

"Zwakala", the new Tresor, is very good:

it's just another Azana Friday:

Azana ft. Sino Msolo • Umaqondana

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Friday, 3 July 2020 07:57 (one month ago) link

she's amazing

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 3 July 2020 18:18 (one month ago) link

god they sound great together, this album is promising to be stunning

rob, Friday, 3 July 2020 18:48 (one month ago) link

Now do yourselves a favour and listen to “Uhuru” again.

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Friday, 3 July 2020 19:42 (one month ago) link

I will def revisit that when the Sun-El album drops (iirc I wasn't as anti as others). Speaking of, are we looking at albums *this summer* from: Sun-El, Azana, Burna Boy, and WizKid?! Should Simmy be on that list too?

rob, Friday, 3 July 2020 19:47 (one month ago) link

oh man throw Tresor on that list too, wth

rob, Friday, 3 July 2020 19:49 (one month ago) link

Not sure about Simmy, but we’ve already had Kabza (I know). Davido also promised another album in July.

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Friday, 3 July 2020 20:30 (one month ago) link

...but yes, that new Azana track. “Umaqondana” might be my favourite so far.

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Friday, 3 July 2020 23:37 (one month ago) link

came across this playlist on Spotify, looks like a perfect match with the music on this thread: Sunday Kind of Love by Filtr South Africa.

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Sunday, 5 July 2020 17:45 (one month ago) link

New Heavy K, “second single”** from a new project that is promised for 31 July. It sounds great and I'm keeping my fingers crossed:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eG9aNx4y9zE
Heavy-K ft. Natalia Mabaso • Uyeke

(**meanwhile previous single “Tsamaya” with Professor has disappeared from Spotify. Don’t know what’s going on between Heavy and Spotify: the tracks he dropped last year never reached it or have disappeared again, and his 2018 album and 2017 classic "Inde" are no longer there either)

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Sunday, 5 July 2020 21:11 (one month ago) link

that's really nice (not surprisingly for him). even the part that semi-reminded me of phil collins "another day in paradise", lol

dyl, Sunday, 5 July 2020 21:47 (one month ago) link

And guess who the public darling this year at BET is

very nice. no idea who votes in these things, but their respective international profiles being the way they are I would not have expected her to beat Rema.

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Saturday, 11 July 2020 19:15 (one month ago) link

☀️My new album TO THE WORLD AND BEYOND #ttwb will be dropping this Spring with a diversity of sound and exciting new features. This album is a colorful continuation of my debut album AFRICA TO THE WORLD. I would like to welcome you to a new chapter 📖 pic.twitter.com/JkLi2ZjsjU

did a double take when I read this, but quickly adjusted my hemispherical bias.

It's out now!

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Thursday, 16 July 2020 22:09 (three weeks ago) link

very hyped. not yet on US spotify tho'.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Thursday, 16 July 2020 22:25 (three weeks ago) link

give it 5h30

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Thursday, 16 July 2020 22:27 (three weeks ago) link

brace yourself for the new Niniola track as well

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Thursday, 16 July 2020 22:30 (three weeks ago) link

pretty fucken psyched for this one (will check the Niniola after I'm done relistening to Smile)

rob, Thursday, 16 July 2020 22:30 (three weeks ago) link

you're not gonna believe this but the Azana is beautiful music

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Friday, 17 July 2020 17:17 (three weeks ago) link

yep, it's good. A bit moodier than I was expecting in some way, and it's a lot to take in, but "Egoli" and especially "Bafazi" stood out on first pass

rob, Friday, 17 July 2020 17:26 (three weeks ago) link

reminded me of 90s downtempo in spots, strangely enough

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Friday, 17 July 2020 17:31 (three weeks ago) link

"Egoli" def had that vibe. My possibly off-base first impression is that she followed the Samthing template and the first half is less upbeat and dancey (the "moodiness") and things pick up and bliss out in the second (?)

rob, Friday, 17 July 2020 17:33 (three weeks ago) link

I’m at “Bafazi” and holy fuck

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Friday, 17 July 2020 19:23 (three weeks ago) link

I'm pretty sure the next two are sublime too, but I actually got halfway through Bafazi and started it over so I could relive it XD

rob, Friday, 17 July 2020 19:29 (three weeks ago) link

Gorgeous album, nothing much else to say rn, just gorgeous. Azana is so wonderful and commanding throughout.

I did notice that Claudio x Kenza produced the majority of the tracks, including “Egoli” and “Bafazi”, while Sun-El is credited for just four.

From this I conclude that Sun-El is not just an incredible producer with a great eye for talent but is probably a fantastic mentor as well.

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Friday, 17 July 2020 20:42 (three weeks ago) link

thinking we should redirect the Jessie Ware posse to this album

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Friday, 17 July 2020 20:46 (three weeks ago) link

I need another listen, but I do wonder if this doesn't deserve its own thread

rob, Friday, 17 July 2020 20:48 (three weeks ago) link

this thread is goodness overglowing, so maybe yes

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Friday, 17 July 2020 20:59 (three weeks ago) link

overglowing? yes that and/or overgrowing, but I meant overflowing obv

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Friday, 17 July 2020 21:00 (three weeks ago) link

impossible not to close your eyes and let the ~vibes~ wash over on bafazi

Spottie, Friday, 17 July 2020 22:05 (three weeks ago) link

Isn’t that just perfectly timed? Video for “Uhuru”:

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Monday, 20 July 2020 16:26 (three weeks ago) link

azana album is gorgeous of course

ufo, Monday, 20 July 2020 22:59 (three weeks ago) link

ufo, I teleported you to the Azana thread in spirit (with your permission I hope!)

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Tuesday, 21 July 2020 18:29 (three weeks ago) link

Love this a lot:

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Tuesday, 21 July 2020 18:29 (three weeks ago) link

yeah that's great, can see that going straight onto replay for awhile
what's the sun-el connection if any?

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 21 July 2020 19:38 (three weeks ago) link

there is none. I think we strayed Mlindo > Sjava > Blaq Diamond at some point, and now we ended up here. it’s still Beautiful South African Music to me.

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Tuesday, 21 July 2020 20:01 (three weeks ago) link

it's awesome!

Extracurricular track by Sun-El "to celebrate the 60th year anniversary of radio station Ukhozi FM".

Simmy's voice...

It's so cool to hear Sotho again (Malome Vector), I like their harsh Rs which strangely remind you of Afrikaans.
