With June amongst us, rest assured we’re going to come across some very inspirational reads on our news feeds. With it being Youth month and that generally meaning that youth doing great things are showcased and celebrated, I find this post fitting.
Just over two months ago Golden Black released their first project titled BAM (By Any Means). The 15-track album is a pure delight to listen to, whether it is in the car on your way to work, having a cleaning jam session or even if you’re set to paint the town red; it creates an all- round feel-good vibe.
My favourite tracks on the album are: Perfect service, Set it off, I need you and Prjkt wolf and my hubby’s (yes, he is an avid listener) is Cream. It was a shocker to see him select the album in the car for us to vibe to, because he hardly ever listens to local music. (hey, judge him, not me…I’m a local is lekker kinda girl #giggles).
We are not the only ones who are feeling the l.o.v.e for this album. To date the hip hop/ afro-trap trio has steady album sales and close to 50K online streams. SA’s hip hop sensation Nasty-C also showed love to the group when a video was uploaded showing him jamming along to the groups “set it off” track. Click here to check it out. Need we say more? Nah! But we want to, so read along.
The group announced that there will be music videos for each track on the album and mentioned a potential deluxe version of the album featuring Nasty-C in the pipeline. For a first –time project, the group is certainly making sure it creates just the kinda waves we like to ride 😎. To make sure you don’t miss out on the 411 and the group’s next move, be sure to follow them on the social media streets. Handles to be noted at the end of this post.
The group itself consists of three young, vibrant and extremely creative individuals: Anston Kling, Fxrgo and Slay. Their real names are: Lungelo Msomi, Thabiso Mngadi and Siyalonda Mtshali respectively. Started off almost a decade ago, the group has faced their fair share of trials, but they made sure that those trials only fueled them to be bigger and better and left no room for failure or negativity.
They bounce off each other’s creativity and vibe like a well-oiled machine. These boys know what they want and will stop at nothing to ensure they get it. They are dedicated personified and understand beautifully that what you put in is what you get out.
The group is no stranger to the industry though, they have worked along side some of SA’s icons, be it as Golden Black or as Saak Beats; the group but as producers. Yeap, they are the full package. They make beats, produce, write lyrics and alles. Speak about being the full package 😊. They have worked with La Bron, Nasty C, Jnr B, Junior De Rocka, Dj Rico, Reason and Tellermann, just to name a few. I told you, they’re no strangers 😉
We certainly look forward to more amazing projects from this talented trio and wish them nothing but love, light and success.
