John Wizards 'Muizenberg' + Seiji & The 2 Bears Remixes

John Wizards 'Muizenberg,' receives remix treatment from Seiji and The Two Bears as a part of the Planet Mu single.


Planet Mu's recent singles package for Cape Town sound-collecting darlings John Wizards offers a goldmine homage to the beachtown ode standout. Our pick for most infectious joint on the sunshine bastion that is the JW debut, "Muizenberg" is a daze-inducing soundtrack for rolling to its Cape Town surf mecca namesake. UK producer Seiji runs the original earthy hodgepodge through an MRI– the result being a synthetic new lifeform with lasers and snares. Taking things to the dancefloor, London-based duo The 2 Bears add spiritual repetition to churn out an even foot friendlier product than the original ball of vibes. Listen to the original "Muizenberg" and its remix treatment below.

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.
