Cape Town Beatmaker Maramza's Futuristic Rework Of Card On Spokes

Cape Town beatmaker Maramza contributes to Card On Spokes' 'Lead Me To The Water Remixes EP' with a futuristic rework of 'Rain.'


Cape Town beatmaker Maramaza (aka Richard Rumney aka Richard The Third) contributes to Card On Spokes' recent Lead Me To The Water remix project with a futuristic rework of “Rain.” Switching between moments of chaotic synths and ethereal electronic trills, Maramza breaks down flooding eardrums and New York-based singer (by way of Cape Town and London) Nicky Schrire's eerie vocals with waves of galactic soundscapes. His latest cut is one of five tracks on the Lead Me To The Water REMIXES EP, which also features remixes from SA/UK's Jumping Back Slash, hazy-bassmaker Fever Trails, and Dank. Listen to the EP in full below and grab a free download here.

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.
