The Top Zambian Music Producers
We list the best producers working in Zambian music featuring the likes of TK, Chali Bravo, Ben Blazer, Jerry Fingers and many more.
B Flow "Cry of a woman". Produced by Killa Beats
Killa Beats works with Reason and Cubase software. He's a genius when it comes to spotting new talent and making them stars and has been blessed with the gift of producing successful projects for female artists. After establishing K-Amy studio, Killa has produced albums like Judy’s Supernatural Woman, President for Alpha Romeo, Dabo Trabo for P-Jay and B Flow and Tyce’s Kazizi ni Kazizi. He’s the R&B specialist who brings to the industry that sweet musical sensation. Killa occasionally produces dancehall, hip-hop and afro. He's also produced singles for artists like Izrael, Mr Vezzy, T-Sean, Jae Cash, Chilu, Kan2 and more.
Abel Chungu Musuka "Ichitemwiko". Produced by Magg 44
Magg 44 is not a regular producer, he has special skills in beatmaking that make him stand out. Magg has a mastering style that sounds quite close to what a Zambian would call 'the American way.' Under Lota House, Magg produces gospel artists Abel Chungu, Pompi and Tio. He also produces other artists as long as they have ‘clean lyrics’ with no curse words. The Zed gospel hip-hopper also produces his own music and comfortably works with Cubase. He’s the only Zambian music producer we know who starts a studio session with a prayer.
James and Elijah
LVee "No sweat no sweat". Produced by James and Elijah
James and Elijah are the two producers behind Kula Music Studio. They have collectively produced top selling albums for Mampi, Nathan Nyirenda, Leo Muntu, Cactus Agony and Anointed Power House. Known for producing music with a live perspective, James and Elijah have been viewed as 'the corporates' because they've focused more on producing jingles and adverts for companies in the recent past.
P-Jay Ft. All Stars "Take Good Care". Produced by Shom C
Shom C has been growing as a producer at a very fast rate and, in the last two years, he's established himself as a dancehall beatmaker. He's worked with artists like Zone Fam, Njoya Tee, Just Slim, Jay Rox, P-Jay and Ruff Kid under his Zero DB label. No doubt, Shom has a bright future.
Chef 187 Ft. Afunika & Pilato "Kumwesu". Produced by Dice
Dice is one of the best producers from the Copperbelt Province. He works with Cubase and Fruity Loops. His sound has a rich quality and undoubtable uniqueness. Stationed at Ndola’s Alpha Entertainment, Dice has been producing big names like Macky 2, Chef 187, Muzo, Pilato and Afunika. His beats range from hip-hop to traditional to afro. You'll know it’s his beat when you hear "Dice on the beat production" at the beginning or end of a song.
