Skaiva & Dj Cy featuring Softman – African Dance (Afrocentric Records)
Skaiva hailing from Zimbabwe certainly has music in his bones and has created this Afro House gem as an ode to how Africans love to dance.
The Original mix features an infectious guitar riff which compliments Softman vocals perfectly, sung in Shona the vocals are extremely catchy. Both CY and Softman are established artist in their homeland who have been instrumental in pushing the Zimbabwe house scene.
On remix duty we have The Ranter based in SA his remix is Afro Tech at its finest. Stripped to the bone with a thumping grimy synth taking centre stage, add to this haunting rising strings and the obligatory wood block all blended together perfectly.
Next up is a new Afrocentric artist by the name of DJ Cider SA a self-taught Dj & producer, he provides a more percussive mix with spine tingling bells and heavy hand claps to take the original in a completely different direction.
