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.

Interview

This Compilation Shines a Light On East African Underground Music

We talk to a few of the artists featured on the Music For the Eagles compilation from Uganda's Nyege Nyege.

Nyege Nyege, a label in Kampala, Uganda is channelling the confidence brimming over a whole continent. Africa is no longer the future. For dance music, its time is right now.

Music For the Eagles is a compilation released in conjunction with Soundcloud to showcase the best new acts that East Africa has to offer outside the mainstream. A new wave of artists firmly blasting non-conformist energy for you to spasm to. Music that takes you places. Otim Alpha's high BPM wedding frenzy of incessant rasping vocals accompanied by feverous violin will have you clawing the walls to oblivion. Anti Vairas' dancehall from a battleship with super galactic intentions doesn't even break a sweat as it ruins you. FLO's beautiful sirens call, is a skittish and detuned nursery rhyme that hints at a yearning for love but reveals something far more unnerving. Ecko Bazz's tough spiralling vocal over sub-bass and devil trap energy is an anthem that can only be bewailed. And Kidane Fighter's tune is more trance-like prayer. These are only some of the highlights for you to shake it out to.

We got to chat with a few of the artists featured on the Music For the Eagles compilation as they took a break from the studio below.
