Watch the Music Video for Beat Sampras’ New Soothing Single ‘Stop & Go’

Watch the music video for the Cape Town-based duo Beat Sampras' latest single.

Guitarist and vocalist Dylan Fine and producer David Migwalla make up the Cape Town-based duo known as Beat Sampras. Their music is a mashup of genres including R&B, soul and trap.


In their latest single "Stop and Go," Dylan strums and croons atop a trap bassline. The track is a soothing love song that reveals great writing, effortless singing and the chemistry the duo has displayed in their previous records and performances.

The song's video is fitting—intercutting the duo's performance scenes with cutaways of a model living her best life in secluded settings, from what looks like a hotel room to the beach and the horizon.

If you love beautifully written love songs that will melt your heart and have a taste for slow-burners that musically reference both the past and the future, then the duo's music is definitely worth checking out.

"Stop and Go" would be a great place to start. Stream it below:

Linked to the 400th year commemoration of the first recorded landing of slaves in the United States, it became a launchpad for the Ghanaian government to convince Black people around the world to permanently settle in the West African country.

Aisha Asamany, a corporate management consultant for high-profile UK financial institutions turned self-taught luxury jewelry designer was one of many who heeded the call, trading in the corporate life for a spiritual and an entrepreneurial journey – one of joy, appreciation, and representation in her fatherland.
