Anesthesia - P.V.C
Techno / Trance

iTunes

P.V.C

Warning - this is psychedelic techno, and high quality psy' techno at that. To be honest it has the feeling of techno made by tranceheads who understand what it takes to make a very special headspace, "Global" has its super-intelligent moves and breaks. Following tracks turn slinky and then funky, and then really funky, culminating in "Nutella Toasted" - what a stormer, what variety, what trance soul in teckno clothing.

INDIZA (VOYAGE) (MZA003)

The sound journey of Indiza Busi Mhlongo's story has been told be many journalists and in order not to repeat ourselves again we opted to give an account of Busi's voyage with MELT, the UK label that helped expose her talent to a world wide audience. Busi's first encounter with MELT started in 1995 when Madala Kunene introduced her to the label during the recording of his highly acclaimed album Kon'Ko Man.

Urban Zulu (BW2118)

FROM THE DIVA OF AFRO POP
When we first started working on these awesome songs penned by Themba, Spectre and Busi, the style was recognisably traditional maskanda. Over the months of work, the maskanda in this album metamorphosed, deepened, widened and finally has come to represent the contemporary Zulu Nation's truest form of expression, with all the agony, the ecstacy, the pain and sorrow, the trials and ironies of life in the modern South Afrika.
This is the first time maskanda has been expressed by a Zulu woman, and who better than Busi, one of the great voices of Afrika. A truly astonishing performer on the stage and in the studio, her original creativity as expressed here represents a quantum leap in South Afrikan music. This is maskanda for the millennium. Listen and be humbled.

Adidas have since used We Baba Omncane as the song for their football campaign.
