Beat Box: One hell of a hot season lies ahead

Zakes Bantwini in his element

Jika! Jika Ma baby! Jika! If South African soul-house band Mi Casa’s lyrics to their new song is anything to go by then we should expect a lot of dance moves at clubs and parties this season influenced by some of the republics music talent. 

The award winning trio are looking to replicate the success of their previous album ‘Mi Casa’ with the release of the new album titled ‘Su Casa’. The well baked 15 track retro and soulful house album combines red hot soothing songs that will further strengthen the groups urban and dance chart grip.

Thato Sikwane known to his fans as DJ Fresh is back with a bang, dishing out to the ears the release of the 7th edition of ‘Fresh House Flava’. Fresh last released ‘Fresh House Flava’ a decade ago, Sony label manager Louis Pillay told newspaper Sowetan “We are so excited to be doing this project with fresh. And this is not the last Flava – it’s one of many more to come.”

Another album that’s bound to have an influence on what occurs on the dance floor is Zakes Bantwini’s new offering ‘The Fake Book & Real Book’. Featuring  J Martins on the well played and loved track ‘Ifunaya’ left me wondering exactly what to expect from the album that comings out some time in October.
