Uhuru's Kwaito-House Anthem 'Y Tjukutja' Ft. Dj Buckz, Oskido, Professor + Yuri-Da-Cunha

SA fourpiece production collective Uhuru drop kwaito-house dancefloor anthem "Y Tjukutja" ft. Dj Buckz, Oskido, Professor and Yuri-Da-Cunha.


Leading the charge in Kalawa Jazmee Records' takeover of clubs on the continent are four producers– Mapiano, Xelo, DJ Clap and Maphorisa– collectively known as Uhuru. On the heels of producing Mafikizolo's smash hits "Khona" and "Happiness," the fourpiece takes to the spotlight with a second taste of their own kwaito-house. Sophomore LP Our Father is set to be HUGE in 2014– with lead single "Y Tjukutja" a sure shot for dancefloor anthem of SA's dawning hot and heavy days. We're willing to place bets that their costumed affair with house legends Dj Buckz, Oskido, Professor and Yuri-Da-Cunha will take home cake at next year's Channel O Awards. Watch the video below and scroll on for Uhuru's guide to kwaito-funk stylings.
