15 South-African House bangers of 2012

Another year gone and we from TropicalBass.com didn’t write too much about the bubbling house scene of South Africa. All eyes are on Luanda now which sometimes makes us forget about the high level of quality and big number of output by South-African artists.
Unfortunatly the release and promotion situation of South African music stays difficult – most artists and labels are totally focused on their home market.

There’s no doubt that the music coming from Durban and the other music metropoles in SA are still worth listening to. We put a small list together for you:

Edit 02/2021: fixed all youtube links.

1. L’vovo feat. Professor – “Palesa”

2. Professor feat. Oskido & Charactor – “Fingerprints”

3. Dj Fisherman feat. Dr Malinga, Oskido, Mampintsha, Danger, & Dj Tira – “Izinja sondela”

4. Bhar – “Uyabhumpa” feat. Sir Bubzin & Dj Tira

5. DJ TIRA feat Mampintsha – “4000”

6. Vetkuk vs Mahoota – “iStokvela”

7. Oskido feat. Candy & Mabhiza – “Tsa Mandebele”

8. Big Nuz – “Emahlanyeni”

10. DJ Zinhle – “My name is” feat. Busiswa

14. Dj Tira – “Summertime”

Black Coffee’s live project Africa Rising which was recorded with a live symphonic orchestra is so extraordinairy that it won’t fit in the list. Rumours say that the Africa Rising DVD will soon available internationally.
