Blanka Mazimela feat. Xolisiwe & Korus – Mpisi
Blanka Mazimela returns to Get Physical this April, delivering three impressive house cuts in the form of the ‘Mpisi’ EP.
South-African talent, Blanka Mazimela is a rising name within the electronic music scene, with a career sparked by a meeting with local producer Ryan Murgatroyd, who went on to become his musical mentor. The Get Physical regular now returns to the label to further build his discography with his latest three-tracker, whilst also providing a taster from the label’s third edition to their ‘Africa Get’s Physical’ compilation, curated by Mazimela himself.
Title cut ‘Mpisi’ kicks off proceedings with an alluring, elevating melody that lifts you up whilst delicate, tribal style chants evolve throughout. ‘Autumn’ serves up an abundance of groove right from the start, fueled by soulful vocals and bubbling bass sequences which help deliver a true, deep house anthem in the making. To close, ‘Indumiso’ offers up a deep and harmonious slice of house music that marries improvised vocal elements with warming bass, keys and soothing pads.
This is a an outstanding Ep from Blanka Mazilmela and offers a superb taster of the new Africa Gets Physical album ahead.
