Much loved South African artist Sun-El Musician launches his 11 track ‘AEDM’ (African Electronic Dance Music) EP today (29th October).
On its creation, Sun-El explained: “African Electronic Dance Music, to me I would define it as not just a sound that designates a single genre but more of a sound that encompasses a style of African elements infused with EDM, but it’s a modern way of exporting the African Dance sound (House Music) to the rest of the world through giving it that African traditional elements of drums, rhythm, and culture.”
Look out for ‘Best friends’ ft. Msaki, ‘Higher’’ ft. Simmy and ‘I like it Anyway’ ft. Ami Faku which all hint at past success with fellow femme collaborators with whom he created award-winning and well-loved hits like viral sensation ‘Ubomi Abumanga’, Into ‘Ingawe’, and ‘Emkhaya’, interspersed with some strong electronic/afro house instrumentals to see in the festive season.
Sun-El Musician (Born Sanele Sithole) is a South African based producer and El-World Music label owner (from the Kwazulu Natal Highlands) who with humility and grace, steadily carves out a reputation for not only having a magic touch with his unmistakable brand of Afro-House and electronic fusion but for constantly being on the forefront of the next African Music frontier.
