An all-star cast of Angola’s producers present an enthralling tribute to their country’s thriving electronic music scene.

DJ Satelite is one of Angola’s hottest electronic music producers and an artist we've written about a lot in the past. To celebrate the release of his label Seres Produções new compilation, Muloje, Satelite has put together a mixtape for Okayafrica, showcasing homegrown Angolan house music.


The mix is packed with rhythmic, percussion-heavy, uptempo vibes that will lure you to sweat it out on the dance-floor or around the house, whichever is your preferred venue, this summer. Two of the tracks also appear on the upcoming compilation album.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
