Naas Producers Daddy Warbucks & Andy Islands Premiere Mixes

Stream a pair of mixes from Cape Town-based naas producers Daddy Warbucks and Andy Islands.

Cape Town's naas is fast becoming a hub for left-of-field music and film in South Africa. The creative agency, who last year assisted in putting out Cape Town beatmaker Cutting Gems' excellent debut EP, started off the new year with perhaps their most ambitious effort yet, the stunning track and video for Card On Spokes' electronic head nodder "On The Low" featuring Boyzn Bucks rapper Okmalumkoolkat and vocalist Nonku Phiri. "We do management, bookings, publishing, distribution, marketing, PR, artistic development, organise touring, events, music videos, photoshoots, design," naas say. Today we're excited to premiere a pair of mixes from the agency's latest future-sounding producers Daddy Warbucks and Andy Islands. For more, keep up with all things naas on Facebook, SoundCloud, and Twitter, and download/listen to mixes from Daddy Warbucks and Andy Islands 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.
