For the Sounds of Muziki compilation, Muziki Africa and FAME Week Africa have teamed up with our in-house label Paradise Sound System to scout new musical talent in South Africa. We asked independent artists to submit their songs for consideration. Jointly organised with Music in Africa, the call went out in July 2022, and submissions were due in August.
Muziki Beatz is out!
Released earlier this October, Muziki Beatz features an African take on Hip-Hop, R&B, AfroBeats, and world music. Paradise Sound System conducted the release, and our Paradise Africa Division conducted the distribution.
One of the leading singles of Muziki Beatz, together with XXC Legacy & Chad Da Don of Paradise Sound System, DSB, a producer, composer and sound engineer at Cosher Studios in Cape Town, as well as two of the winners, Kd Summerz and Fruit Vendor, created a collaborative tune "Believe It” that is featured on Side A of the Compilation, Muziki Beatz.
“The Studio was magic, initially we just wanted to connect together but it ended up being an amazing jam session. Everyone came up with their own melodies and ideas and were willing to work and the teamwork, communication & creativity was great from all angles. The music coming out of South Africa attests to the creativity as we can see and experience a fusion of different genres that give birth to new genres and sub-genres" Said Kamo Mailula.
This compilation showcases and supports African independent musicians and bands, forging bridges between Africa and the world. Africa's art and music are magnificent: Art, dance, and music influence the world. This compilation will assist in finding undiscovered musicians and building their fanbase.
