Batuk’s Latest Single 'Move' is a Perfect Party Jam

Watch the video for 'Move' by Batuk.

South African electronic music duo Batuk just released their single off of their upcoming EP Move!.


Titled "Move," the song borrows from kwaito, EDM, pop and even jazz, and is perfect to shake your booty to. As illustrated by the dancers on the video, "Move" is perfect for private listening in your living room, the kitchen, the beach, and pretty much anywhere there's enough space for your gyrations.

"Move" is an oxymoron in that it's nostalgic and futuristic at the same time. Nothing unexpected with Spoek Mathambo on the boards.

The band's lead vocalist Manteiga dominates the song with her personality on two verse and the hook, while Spoek appears on one verse with his swaggering delivery.

Watch the video for "Move" below and pre-order Move! here.
