We’re virtually heading down to the most populated city in South Africa, which sometimes goes by the name of Jozi, otherwise known as Johannesburg! You know the drill: check out the SoundClouders we found there :)
Tumi Mpye is a singer, songwriter and student, but first things first, she’s mostly a singer! Based out of Johannesburg, South Africa, she likes to sing acapellas and create other cool tracks. She’s down for sharing these tracks as free downloads as well, so head over to her page.
FEARtheFUZZ is Almega Motion’s experimental side. Almega Motion is actually a trio that was formed by three young, motivated and aspiring artists: Aavishkar Jugmohan, Ryan Sedeman and Cameron Last. They’ve been producing for over 5 years now so they’ve managed to develop a cool style. Check ‘em out!
Reigndear is a 3 piece experimental psychedelic folk band. They were officially founded in Taiwan, January 2007, by South African brothers Kent Dylan & Wesley Jay along with their longtime friend, Johnny Atterbury. They like to say, “There are no rainy days, only perfect days to reign, dear.”
Originally from Zimbabwe and a lover of all genres, Edward Snare started his music career in 2005, dabbling in composing hip hop instrumentals and writing lyrics. He’s still evolving, learning and improving on everything he does, so you can hear what he has so far below in the player.
Stuart Fury is a sound designer and producer of royalty free music for commercial use. It’s mostly game music, sounds, and modern cinematic trailer scores, but there’s lots more there too. He produces music solely for listening pleasure, so go on and be pleased by checking out his stuff.
Itching for more? Here you go!
When/if you’re based in Johannesburg, contribute to the group on SoundCloud here.
