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

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 (ten months 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 (ten months ago) link

it's awesome!

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

Nabozo, Friday, 24 July 2020 19:50 (ten months ago) link

“Emoyeni” is beautiful

"Dumelang" shot right into my summer playlist thx

There’s also Nobuhle. I suspect she may be featured on Sun-El’s album – this song is not on his label, but the video is promoted on the EL World TV YouTube account:

He’s good! I posted an earlier track of his here last year, I think. Saw he just released an album>EP. Have you listened to it yet?

(those are “Molo” and “Uhamba Nobani” (ft. Sho Madjozi) btw)

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Sunday, 2 August 2020 17:05 (ten months ago) link

There's an unplugged version as well. Close to Blaq Diamond and SamthingSoweto.

Much more Heavy K than Sun-EL - it's none other than Mpumi, Miss Mzobe if you’re nasty:

Can you hear the sound of that plane or whatever it is taking off?

Also, why can’t we fucking go out and dance anymore!??!

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Thursday, 20 August 2020 15:32 (nine months ago) link

will fire this up shortly.
as to why we can't dance, do I have some bad news for you...

Singer S-Tone has an album out on Sun-El’s label, after his EP last year. Almost all the tracks are produced by Claudio and/or Kenza, there’s only one track with Sun-El himself (not my immediate favourite). There’s some amapiano-leaning tracks as well, a first in EL World, I think. Take “Kamnandzi”, for example:

I accidentally put a different Vico Da Sporo f. Sandile track on my afropop playlist, and it—"Umuhle Ntombi"—just came on and blew me away:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBb8-C8pIEY

"Luthando" is good too of course (I guess I'll have to find time to check out this...2 hr. long album ffs)

rob, Thursday, 27 August 2020 17:54 (nine months ago) link

“Umuhle Ntombi” is the only other track I had checked out. It’s good, but I prefer “Luthando”.

Listening to his other tracks featuring Sandile now: “Buya” is all about the last two minutes when the harmonies really kick in, “Intokazi Yohlobo” is beautiful triphoppy amapiano, that beat is great. “Noyana” from *the other* album Vico da S released this year is also very very nice (wow at that vibraphone break), and “Ndod’mnyama”, Sandile’s Vico-produced solo single, is weirdly mixed but those muffled dubby handclaps remind me of the Peech Boys’ “Don’t Make Me Wait” (speaking of tracks with unexpected rock guitar!) and now I’m very happy.

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Thursday, 27 August 2020 20:56 (nine months ago) link

btw Sandile is also on a track on one of the two (sigh) excellent amapiano albums released this year so far by Future Majestics.

It really is a shame how much good music is being released on a weekly basis in South Africa alone.

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Thursday, 27 August 2020 20:59 (nine months ago) link

^^to be clear, this is not meant to be snarky, all this (potentially) great music that is being released within the various SA house genres is a blessing, but it’s quite literally impossible to keep up with

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Friday, 28 August 2020 16:24 (nine months ago) link

Update: just noticed Vico Da Sporo dropped *yet another album* over the weekend, 81 minutes, 17 tracks, 6 of which with Sandile. Needless to say, I haven’t had time to listen to it yet. Where does he find it?

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Monday, 31 August 2020 19:30 (nine months ago) link

Anyone in need of some Simmy?

Okay, I will post the other Samthing track on CN’s new album too. There’s less of him this time, but I’ll take every bit of Samthing I can get and Nyovest is less intrusive on his own track here:

he’s one of SA’s biggest rappers

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 15 September 2020 17:49 (nine months ago) link

he’s also on amapiano hits like Kabza’s “Phoyisa” and “Sponono”, and “Monate Mpolaye” by DJ Sumbody.

Sun-El has a credit on this track on the new Black Motion album - I'm posting the performance on music show Live Amp on SA television:
