Why do we like this?

First off, if you're unfamiliar with Muzi's latest EP, and it's lead single, please note that "Queen" has a vocal feature from the absolutely massive Chris Martin of Coldplay. To top that off with a Dan Kye remix is almost egregious. Alas, we have been spoiled yet again by Fool's Gold Records.

It's no secret that at Indie Shuffle we love all things Jordan Rakei, especially works under his Dan Kye alias. And Muzi is no stranger to our site either! If you're new here, I'd recommend baptizing yourself in 2019's "Mncane" -- a highlight off of the South African'sZENO album.

For artists originating from emerging market countries, there's always the consideration of if and how to try and break your music overseas, namely in America or Western Europe. Call it antiquated, but there's great support for the music in those territories, alongside healthy audiences.

Reaching territories outside of one's home is specifically important for indie artists from South Africa, where the fractured local music scenes gravitate towards geographically more relevant sounds (in a country with 11 official language, it's no surprise that there are also many local genres).

If you're like Muzi, whose sounds bridges the 'here' and 'there,' you've got your work cut out for you. Muzi's latest album uMuzi is representative of the artist's graft and skill. And support from artists like Chris Martin and Jordan Rakei is testament to that.
