J. Castell, Gimme a chance

‘Chilled’ resides in the narrow chasm between being laid back and being a mild sedative, a vibe that makes sense only when you’ve acquired the taste. The song is definitely beyond passable but not much has been done in the way of backing the claim that it’s actually an Afrobeats jam – but then again, what genre is not a spectrum nowadays? the song exudes more of Amvis than anyone…

Obi Davids is a dark tourist exploring the ruins of what used to be his happy place

Obi Davids is a dark tourist exploring the ruins of what used to be his happy place, and he’s acutely aware that he can never will it back into existence. No Air is a somewhat tragic mosaic of memories, meticulously pieced together in such a way that both affliction and contentment can be heard, all for our auditory pleasure. The song is a calm and refined version of how most…

Tanto Wavie, John vhura gedhi

Tanto Wavie’s John Vhura Gedhi is exactly what you expect; a wildly amusing joint that’s also a hollow vessel to pass through without accumulation of anything substantial (not that anyone ever anticipates the opposite from songs of this nature). Like the original version, John Vhura Gedhi is a highly charged and light-hearted ditty rooted in frivolous and fun-loving grounds. You reach for this lay, not when you’re in your feels,…

KAE CHAPS – JUZI

As a result of its bitterish disposition, Kae Chaps’ Juzi is extremely relatable. Oftentimes we are haunted by the very same thing that was once intended for our joy; strand by strand, our happiness unraveling away. Heartbreak sounds amazing on Kae Chaps, and that is honestly why this song is not just another whining session fuelled by a crazy-quilt of emotion. Juzi is a slightly melodramatic and slightly laid back…

Rachel Chinouriri, Darker Place

If we’re being honest, the brouhaha about traditional pop is almost completely dead, and finally, the age of perfunctory songs is giving way to a more intriguing kind of sound. A kind of sound that involves more than just coaxing your vocals against a melody that many could claim have heard elsewhere. We’re now living for a “Darker Place” kind of sound. This appropriately named song appears to capture certain…

“91” explores all the altitudes associated with love

In as much as it feels like a more refined version of 2021 is stuck in traffic and our only option is to hang on to this insipid rough draft, let’s appreciate that certain pleasures, such as genuinely good music, are still within our reach. Award-winning vocalist, Tina Masawi has always been known for her distinctive art direction and virtuosity, and although it has taken longer than anticipated, the world…

Lil’ Hood Lover

The whole Zimbabwean music industry is going through an upturn of powerful and formidable vocalists, and its only a matter of time till they engross the market. In her very affecting voice, Tana relates a not so unusual love scenario. I mean, we’ve all had that one love encounter that inspired in us thuggish and unruly behavior; anything to hold on to the superior emotion. On this song, Lil Hood Lover, Tana gently coaxes her smooth vocals that possess just the right amount of refinement, and she becomes the embodiment of the term “raw talent”. Lil Hood Lover is nothing short of a passable contemporary R&B song; it is soulful, somewhat sensual, and has a steady agreeable beat. But like most songs nowadays, it’s more about the vocals than it…
