Get Physical Music serves up a final EP taken from Thandi Draai's standout Africa Gets Physical Vol. 4 compilation, due for release in January 2022.
The mix is an in-depth and authoritative insight into the current African house scene and its major players. It has been assembled by a leading voice, Thandi Draai, and features a number of the vocalist's own tracks. But first comes this five-track Various Artists EP.
Khensy & Cuebur open up with 'Huwelelani,' an epic, seven-minute spiritual awakening. The vocals stir your soul, the deep-rooted drums are earthy and tribal and the synths bring cosmic rays of light. Atmos Blaq is next up with a remix of Thandi Draai's 'Iris' which is a chunky roller with a late-night sense of mischief. Whispered vocals lend the track a sense of intimacy despite the grandeur of the synths. Shona SA & Sazi Cele's 'Sekukude' keeps the spine-tingling deep house sounds rolling with more exquisite pads and Afro vocals all unfolding next to thoughtful chords.
Un_nown & Zikhona link up to great effect on 'Sikelela' which layers shiny and loopy synths in with tribal percussion and pounding kicks that get you marching. Another deeply affecting vocal lights up the whole track and last of all comes Drega & Maline Aura's 'Mama Dear.' There is a beauty to the deftness of the synths and dreamy melodies of this one that sends you off in a loved-up reverie, full of hope and optimism.
This EP shows that the South African scene has never been more vibrant than it is now.

Bääm! What else to say? Master of beats, of groove and let alone the art of noises circulating around tight arrangements like butterflies you'll never catch... ah, this record is a must-have, just in case you ask. Buy it on Bandcamp NOW and compare later with the ludicrous iTunes business model. Thanks to DJ.T for getting us physical... Benjamin Sohrt
