Muzi Tells the Story of Displacement, Cheap Labor & Love Under Apartheid in His New EP ‘Stimela SeGolide’
"It's real and sensitive, but I wanted to talk about it and remember it while entertaining in an honest way," says Muzi.
South African producer and artist Muzi is, in his own words, genre nonconforming. His bases are EDM and hip-hop, but he always makes sure to sprinkle elements of vintage South African genres in his music. In his debut album, 2018's Afrovision, the artist explored more Afrocentric sounds alongside the customary synths and bass lines that characterize electronic music.
In his latest EP, Stimela SeGolide, Muzi tells the story of his grandparents throughout the project's four songs.
