The 10 Best South African Electronic Artists, according to Toya Delazy
Incorporating talent from across the globe, check out our five Tracks of the Week taken from our meticulously-curated ‘BRAND NEW’ playlist showcasing some of the most exciting up-and-coming talents around.
1. Simili Gum – ‘Hier’
Able to construct vast sonic worlds with his psychedelic variety of electro pop, France’s Simili Gum is a unique and exciting prospect. Following the release of last year’s genre-blending ‘Pacifyer’ album, his latest track ‘Hier’ is a dark and glitchy rap number which merges dreamy production with Gum’s quirky vocals.
2. Omas Amor – ‘White Rose’
With only a small number of releases out, Danish artist Omas Amor has already managed to find his own lane mixing woozy production with gently woven hip hop and R&B flavours. His smooth new track ‘White Rose’ is an experimental lo-fi tune which impresses as much instrumentally as it does vocally.
3. Flexo Kobain – ‘TNT’
Blending elements of his family’s Nigerian heritage with R&B, grime and beyond, the only thing that comes close to North West London producer Flexo Kobain’s dynamic sound is his work rate. His latest track ‘TNT’ follows a long line of transatlantic collaborations, this time tapping up Texas rapper Lil Gohan as well as TTdafool to round off the smooth rap number.
4. Cajm x Tex – ‘Shutter Speed’
‘Shutter Speed’ is the final track from Cajm and Tex’s ‘5from3’ EP which was written and recorded in a three day period. The pair’s sound could be described as a delicate mashup of indie and electronic elements, with this track serving to show what they’re all about.
5. The Convenience – ‘Kiss Me In Heaven’
Hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana, The Convenience are an indie double act known for their eccentric dream pop sound. On ‘Kiss Me In Heaven’, the group turn in an energetic cut packed full of vibrant synths and nostalgic vocals.
