South African artist Blanka Mazimela continues to flourish on Get Physical Music with another beautifully organic house EP featuring a Nizhe Desoul remix.
Over the last few years Blanka Mazimela has truly come into his own with an array of standout tracks on Get Physical and his steady hand at the controls of the latest Africa Gets Physical album. Each musical offering has showcased his unique, fully formed sound and deft use of organic instrumentation and vocals. Next to DJing, producing, and playing live, Blanka is also the content head and head of musical composition for Soul Candi’s Institute of Music.
He kicks off this latest and greatest EP with ‘Phezulu Reloaded.’ It is a deep house track laced with spirituality thanks to the vocals of Khonaye. Harmonic bell sounds and shimmering synths come on top of warm, comforting bass to ensure a heartfelt experience. ‘Votile’ is another gorgeous production that proudly wears its South African heritage in the vocals, rhythms, and percussive patterns that so quickly hypnotise you. For the more driving and physical ‘Triumphant’, Mazimela links with Shivers BW to cook up a tribal groove made all the more vibrant by the soulful male vocal. The track is peppered with lush chords and held together with taught bass and takes you on a glorious adventure.
Last of all is a remix from Underground Vessel Records boss Nizhe Desoul. He has landed on this label before now and is also a lecturer at Soul Candi Institute of Music. He masterfully flips the original into an astral techno exploration with yearning vocals and nimble rhythms that keep your whole body moving.
‘Votile’ is house music filled with a fresh perspective and uniquely South African spirit.
