Due to the overwhelming support in response to the "Super' post recently, Caitlin. I have decided to utilize my mutant abilities of not giving a fuck, coz I'm just too busy getting blown away by this awesome producer called Jumping Back Slash. He's making SA beats to the next level yo, I'd like to think of it as the progression of the Kwaito and house music coming out of the country in the 90's, groups like; Bongo Maffin, Boom Shaka, Abashanti??, Brend Fassie and Arthur etc. Coz for me nowadays Kwaito is the equivalent of an American rap video but with a Mazda parked at a shabeen with bikinis.
So its just refreshing to hear this kind of music being made unfortunately it takes a foreigner to do it but Im not complaining maybe the local "muso's" will take notice and go "oh fuck our music is shit, lets change that." Jumping Back Slash is the perfect combination of African beats, house and a whole lot of appeal.
Have a listen here
and a cool remix he created..
