The four KEWLest pieces of Ear Kandi playing in the KEWL Lounge this month.
Zakes Bantwini - Wasting My Time
(Black Coffee original mix)
Zakes Bantwini is, undisputedly, one of South Africa's fastest rising urban house stars. Produced by close friend Black Coffee, the original mix provides a suitably deep and meaningful platform for Bantwini's heartfelt lyrics about phony relationships and, in turn, his soulfully immaculate delivery. Lush afro-edged rhythms lead into smart bursts of trumpet, cool double bass-lines and stirring Rhodes solos - a rich musical weave more than amplifying Bantwini's performance.
Wasting My Time is another real house release,Powerful deep house with ties to South Africa, Europe and the States, Wasting My Time both unites and enlightens the dancefloor. Time, of course, well spent...
Liquideep - Angel
(DJ Spen & Gary Hudge long version)
Angel is a beautiful ode to women and the blessings they bring. Ziyon performs an emotional heart warming vocal drizzled over soothing melodic rhythms with warm sweeping keys and a tear jerking piano performance. Liquideep have been at the forefront of the South African house music explosion since the offset and are set to spread their magic to the rest of the world!
Beat Rivals feat. CeCe David - Give It To Me (Soulshy Remix)
Dawn Tallman - I am Free (Original Mix)
