Producer of the moment, DJ Maphorisa who is a member of the popular house group, Uhuru is at it again with his latest offering ‘Monate Potleng’ which he looped in former Rhythmic Elements member, McKenzie. The two Tshwane brothers have locked this one!
From the beginning of the song, Maphorisa does not take long to showoff his music production skills. Giving the song that upbeat commercial feel, McKenzie jumps in with some well prepared vocal takes that compliment the beat on offer. But McKenzie is not the only one who takes the song to another level, the producer himself also offers a brief verse aimed at making the song even more attracting.
A few things to notice here is Maphorisa’s ability to give the song that Nigerian feel without losing the South African house value. The club DJ kept the song rolling with the usage of a live guitar, supported by a smooth musical arrangement.
Our prediction is that, ‘Monate Potleng’ is likely to dominate the nightlife. Truth be told, DJ Maphorisa’s music production skills are on steroids. ‘Monate Potleng’ has all the exciting elements that make it a perfect soundtrack to that moment in a club when you close your eyes and simply let go of yourself.
As good as it is though, it is the wandering melody, shuffling drums and provoking lead guitar which will have most listeners coming back for more. You gonna sing along to this one, best believe!
