Umlilo 'The Elements'

New single from Umlilo The Elements is the second off the 'Shades of Kwaii' EP from the Cape Town-based producer/artist.


The second release off Shades of Kwaai, “The Elements” is a testament to Umlilo’s behemoth sounds. This music is a cup of coffee first thing in morning. Dark, fresh, strong and hot with a touch of satisfying earthy bitterness, Umlilo inject just the right amount of pep in the step of South Africa’s billowing electronic music scene. The inky future-kwaai anthem "The Elements" speaks to Siya Ngcobo’s versatility; hitting falsettos and harmonies over a bombastic bass mastered by Beatenberg’s Ross Dorkin. Keep an eye out for more as the year goes on, with rumours of some great video releases circulating.
