We live for great sounds, especially those curated right here on our continent- Africa. Now lately we have been sampling music and art from different cultures and whenever we find something interesting we alway share with you guys.
This is one of those times; Holstar officially releases ‘Africore’ an Afrobeats inspired EP with production from Canis Major, Kekero, Ollee Benjamin and Reverb.
The 4 track EP boasts of a feature from Superstar Jay Rox on ‘Wanidah’, produced by Kekero. ‘Wanidah’ is an Afrobeat track with heavy drums with a dancehall style tune attached to it that just happens to be one of my favourite records on this collection.
Listen to ‘Wanidah’ below, enjoy.
‘Pafupi’ produced by Canis Major is a more laid back smooth record, perfect for you regular listening in the office or on the road. A love ballad flavoured with super hiphop rhymes and a cool catchy hook exposing the rap prowess of Holstar.
Listen to ‘Pafupi’ below enjoy.
Third on the list is ‘Yours Forever’, a more pan-African jam unlike its predecessor this record is done fully in English which makes it easy for most to understand the lyrics. More choral with a few rap verses produced by Ollee Benjamin.
Listen to ‘Yours Forever’ below enjoy.
Closing the collection is ‘Zegede’ which happens to be the leading Single from ‘Africore’ EP. It features Zone Fam member Yung Verbal and rising Zambian Afro Dancehall RnB sensation Luwizzy. Reverb handles the production on this banger!
