Terry G X Iju Anthem

Continuing his streak of covering house tracks, Terry is back this time covering DJ CNDO’s Terminator. When he’s on a roll he’s on a roll i guess.

Mr Killa x Pepper Wine

Mr Killa whose Soca Monarch performance deserves to shown on loop in a museum, is back with a new song called Pepper Wine. Uptempo in bpm but calm in his delivery, its fun. Happy to see that he is going to build on that Rolly Polly success.

R2bees x Killing Me Softly

Seems like a long time ago since kiss my hand but R2BEES are back with a mid 2000 r and b song with plenty of dancehall interpolations.

M.anifest and Jayso x Balotelli

Produced by Jayso this tribute to Super Mario is good. Much better than the Chelsea song, although i don’t know if I’m blinded by the fact that someone made a song about chelsea. The Trappy, Hip Hop beat is good and the first verse really gets into Mario’s story. To be fair it’s great to see people making songs about Mario, Drake professes his domination but can’t be bothered to actually mention him in rhyme. Not that it really matters but we will look back at Mario’s career with intrigue in 20 years time. Money, petulance, racism and self identity are just are small part of his story.

P-Square x Alingo (Feat. Sizwe)

First it was Machel and Timaya (well actually a couple of other folks) and not it’s the time of P-Square and Sizwe/ I was hoping for a sly road mix but its pretty much the same as the OG. Here’s to more of this please.

Phyno x Parcel (A Big Nwa)

First of all Phyno’s videos are the best out at the moment. What yo end up losing by him speaking in his native tongue is more than made up with his visuals. The other thing thats important for him is that very instrumental i’ve heard him on is part hip hop part racing dance music, creating an interesting soundscape that is his own. I spent most of this morning going through artists that are trying to sound like 2013 50 cent. Even 50 Cent doesn’t want to sound like 2013 50 Cent, it’s quite depressing. I guess another thing i like about Phyno, he looks like a naija version of Taz Arnold. Differentiating yourself is going to be pivotal as the outside world starts looking at these artists.
