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. Terry Presume – ‘ZaZa and Some Runtz (Smoke Break)’
Arriving with his most audacious and streamlined single yet, Terry Presume’s undefinable sound explodes into action on his latest track ‘ZaZa and Some Runtz (Smoke Break)’. Switching effortlessly between piercing rap flows and funk-charged melodies, the rising vocalist and producer leaves his mark in incredible style. If he wasn’t already on your radar, there’s no excuses now.
2. Kai Kwasi – ‘unt’
After being sat on his latest track ‘unt’ since 2017, the arrival of Kai Kwasi’s super smooth single couldn’t have been timed any better. Blending woozy guitar and saxophone progressions with the singer’s mellow croons, the gentle lo-fi cut is about inner conflict and clouded decision making.
3. Kat Duma – ‘Daydream’
Hailing from Toronto, Kat Duma’s experimental outlook on music has led her to explore everything from noise-based industrial soundscapes to folk and dub-influenced compositions. For her latest track ‘Daydream’, the vocalist, producer and multi-instrumentalist turns in an atmospheric cut which showcases her ethereal world-making ability.
4. Twiceyoung – ‘A Place For Us’
Making waves in Philadelphia’s underground music scene, indie pop duo Twiceyoung are continuing to impress with their off-kilter and quirky creations. Their latest single ‘A Place For Us’ is an atmospheric number bringing together glistening alt-pop production and chromatic melodies.
5. lil rhiz0me – ‘vow’
Versatile, energetic, and immensely fun; Belgium-based artist lil rhiz0me is one to keep an eye on if glitchy nightcore and manic hyperpop-fuelled ballads float your boat. Tapping into her trademark rave sound, new track ‘vow’ is an explosive cut which sees the rising talent’s distorted vocals ricochet around a melange of bubbly synths and lush pads.
