Boyznbucks' Stilo Magolide Shares 'Mr Party'

Johannesburg collective Boyznbucks member Stilo Magolide shares his latest club anthem, the Gqom-influenced "Mr Party."


Johannesburg's Boyznbucks crew continue their reign with the upward rise of the group's streetwear guru Stilo Magolide, who this week dropped the follow-up track to his 2014 summertime jam "All On Me." A key party-starter in both Stilo’s and Boyznbucks' live set, "Mr Party" combines a deep gqom beat with triumphant synth-horn stabs. Lyrically, Stilo keeps the mood light and playful with slick verses and punch lines referencing everything from flexing at pool parties, to having the fashion swagger of soccer star Christiano Ronaldo. As for what's coming up in 2015, "I’m dropping my project it’s titled ‘Camron Diaz’ which is absolutely amazing stuff, mind blowing tunes and more movies this year for me," Stilo told We-Are-Awesome in a recent interview. He also says we should expect more collaborations from him this year. Listen to "Mr. Party" below. For more, follow Stilo Magolide on Soundcloud, Twitter and Soundcloud.

A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
