Major Lazer and Major League Djz unite on new album ‘Piano Republik’.
The pair up has been on the cards for a while, with the respective club teams aligning on singles like the exuberant ‘Koo Koo Fun’ and the Joeboy aided ‘Designer’.
All-out amapiano thrills, it finds the South African production team working alongside Major Lazer’s own Diplo, Walshy Fire, and Ape Drums. Walshy Fire comments:
“Africa is the centre of musical energy for the whole world right now, and amapiano is easily one of the most exciting things happening. It’s blown up all over the continent, but it all started in South Africa, and Major League Djz are in the middle of everything. As soon as we got to experience their movement in real life, we knew we just had to collaborate.”
Out now, ‘Piano Republik’ offers amapiano excitement, tethering fresh ideas to South Africa’s breakout sound. Ty Dolla $ign guests on both ‘Smoking & Drinking’ and ‘Oh Yeah’, while guests from the continent include Msaki, Gaba Cannal, Russell Zuma, Yumbs, Boniface, DJ Rico and Clash favourite Tyla.
Tune in now.
