Tracka de Day: Bamzigi ft. Kaytrixx "Bachette"

[embed width="560"][/embed]


A well matched video was released for the high energy track, "Bachette"  by Bamzigi ft. Kaytrixx from Kenya. DJ Kaytrixx comments in a youtube post, "Bachette is a word in the 3050 dictionary....Anything u want it o mean..it can mean a boob, a woman, whatever u want it to mean....lol...." 3050 represents Kenyan music, and the track comes from a new Kenyan sound Bamzigi is responsible for called "Mizuka" - a combination of Kapuka and Electronic/House. At 155 bpm this track is bonkers - we particularly enjoyed the video.

Femi explains: "'As We Struggle Everyday' is about how hard people work everyday to make ends meet and still go to vote corrupt politicians into power who are meant to be in jail."

Femi Kuti shares his new single, "As We Struggle Everyday," the latest drop from the upcoming double album Legacy +, a joint endeavor with his son Made Kuti.

"As We Struggle Everyday" is a politically-charged afrobeat tune about people having the voting power to hold their 'leaders' accountable, but often failing to do so. Throughout the song, Femi sings "As we struggle everyday We try to find a better way See these leaders wey suppose jail Na him my people dem dey hail."

Femi explains: "'As We Struggle Everyday' is about how hard people work everyday to make ends meet and still go to vote corrupt politicians into power who are meant to be in jail."
