Muzi's Mutant Durban Trap In 'Fire Up The Bongo' EP

Stream young Durban producer Muzi's agressive 'mutant trap' beats on his "Fire Up The Bongo" EP.


We first got hooked on young Durban producer Muzi from his hyperactive video for "Symbols" from last summer. The 23 year-old producer, who describes his music as “mutant trap, hyper bass and African soca,” first started making beats as a teenager on his brother’s old PC as a reaction to being an an outcast skater in Durban's Empangeni township.

His Fire Up the Bongo EP, premiering here today, showcases 6 tracks of aggressive and energetic bass paired with chopped & screwed vocals, all influenced by Baauer and likeminded producers. Watch the video for lead EP single "Uproar," in which Muzi asks strangers on SA streets to listen to his beats, and stream Fire Up The Bongo EP below, released by Generation Bass.
