Jumping Back Slash 'JBS 004'

Stream Cape Town producer Jumping Back Slash's 'afrotronical space music' EP JBS004.


Producer Jumping Back Slash, one of our go-to beatmakers, returns with JBS 004 — the fourth installment from his striking eponymous EPs that blend underground electronic progressions with hints of SA house and kwaito. The producer labels it 'afrotronical space music,' a far more pinpoint description than we're gonna be able to come up with. Highlights here include the kwaito-influenced percussion accents on "Plateaux"  and some solid female vocal chopping on "Blue Smoke." Stream JBS004 below and buy it on bandcamp.

It has been more than 30 years since the premiere of the beloved classic comedy Coming to America. Its highly anticipated sequel promises to be greater than its predecessor. The film will be accompanied with two albums—Coming 2 America original motion picture soundtrack and Rhythms of Zamunda, whose tracklist is inspired by the movie. Both albums, which are currently available on all major streaming platforms, feature African music royalty Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga and Alpha P, who joined a select group of artists from around the continent to produce these tracklists.

Still blazing charts after the success of his debut album Old Romance, Tekno has a growing list of impressive collaborations with artists like Davido, Drake, Beyonce, to name a few. The singer does not have not one, but two of his hit songs featured; "Waka Waka" is featured on the official soundtrack and "Skeletun" on Rhythms of Zamunda.
