Shangaan Electro Pioneer Nozinja Shares The Visuals For 'Baby Do U Feel Me'

South African shangaan electro producer Nozinja shares the computer-generated music video for "Baby Do U Feel Me," off his Warp Records LP.


South African shangaan electro pioneer Nozinja comes through with the technicolor, computer-generated 3D music video for "Baby Do U Feel Me," the latest single from his recently released Nozinja Lodge LP on Warp Records. The LaTurbo-directed visuals pair the producer's lighting-speed 189BPM blend of drum machines, Tsonga disco, kwaito and traditional shangaan music with appropriately bright and vibrant PC textures, and superimposed images of Nozinja and his dancers breaking down some moves.

After spending some time stateside for Electronic Africa Nozinja will be heading on a short European tour starting in July, check out his full dates in the flyer below. Nozinja Lodge's lead single “Tsekeleke” already made it onto our top music videos of 2014 list last year, and features other standout tracks like “Xihukwani,” Grab the shangaan electro producer's latest album, available now on iTunes, Amazon, and Bleep, and watch his latest video for "Baby Do U Feel Me" below.
