Muzi – uMUZI (Edd Remixes)

Posted on Mar 8th, 2024

Last October, South African artist Muzi made his Fool’s Gold debut with uMUZI, an autobiographical collection of music with vignettes of the artist’s journey from childhood to fatherhood . In 2024, this project has been reimagined for the club with remixes from Dan Kye, Edd, Emmaculate, and monocolour, a brand new alias from Kyptogram. Multi instrumentalist Jordan Rakei, know by his electronic soul-jazz alias Dan Kye, delivers a remix that even adds his own falsetto vocals to “Queen” — an anthem that already featured Chris Martin (yes, that Chris Martin). Malta’s Edd transforms both “Light” and “Queen” into tasteful tech house bangers. Chicago’s Emmaculate turns fan favorite “Milk & Honey” (feat. The Last Skeptic) into a nighttime Afro house weapon. Kyptogram, who has been making waves with his project kypt. vol2, premieres his new monocolour alias with a huge remix of “Queen” complete with powerful synth lines and live percussions. Listen now.

Muzi – uMUZI

Posted on Oct 13th, 2023

An autobiographical collection detailing Muzi’s universe and how it came to be, uMUZI sees the “Zulu Skywalker” return to Earth, grounded by his memories and the desire to reconnect with his late parents. Where his previous album, INTERBLAKTIC, focused on Muzi’s journey as an artist, uMUZI serves as his origin story, chronicling the moments that have truly made Muzi who he is – from describing his parents’ first date with ‘eMtunzini’ and his first crush with ‘Queen’, to his introspective approach to his period of homelessness on ‘Problems’ and his tumultuous relationship with his father on ‘Timer’. Muzi has a way of intertwining his deepest, most personal vulnerabilities into his music. His authenticity and way of inducing listeners with virtuous stories through insightful lyricism has made Muzi a transcendent storyteller. He’s long dedicated his bodies of work to his family with his 2020 MAMA EP, a memorandum honoring his late mother and 2019 ZENO, an album written for his daughter. His latest project uMUZI follows suit, analyzing his relationship with his late father and own experience with fatherhood. For Muzi, this album is about introspection and growth; the ability to reflect on one’s history and use those lessons as motivation towards a brighter future. Listen now.
