The Muzi Fire FX EP- Listen to the Minimix
The Muzi Fire FX EP is scheduled for release on the 4th of December 2015.
The Muzi Fire FX EP is made up of six tracks that carry on the theme of Muzi’s music that is ‘full-on and in-your-face’.
“If my music doesn’t make you feel like your ribcage is going to break the fuck up, if my music doesn’t make you feel like your eardrums are about to blow the fuck up, then I’m sorry I’ve failed you, Bitch.” Said Muzi of the Muzi Fire FX EP
His sound is made up of electronica and hip hop with a strong angle on paying homage to his Empangeni township, South African roots. Muzi makes no secret of the violence he experienced in the years while growing up and therefore this aspect of his life seeps its way into his expression and work. We interviewed Muzi in July this year, just before he moved to Berlin. You can check that out here.
“The hardness of the sound is probably because I come from a very bad background. People used to tell me my music was very violent. Maybe that is true because that’s what I grew up seeing. But the energy of it is happy and positive. I’ll never take you to a dark place with my music, because I know how that feels.” Elaborated Muzi
Muzi’s talent and originality has not gone unnoticed. He has played at some of South Africa’s top ranking music festivals such as Rocking the Daisies, Oppikoppi, Griet festival, Ramfest, and Synergy Live. He’s had two DJ sets at Bestival and he co-hosted the Nando’s Music Exchange with Example at the Roundhouse in London.
He has also received recognition from guys like Diplo, Foreign Beggars, Jakwob, including Rinse FM, Generation Bass, and OWLSA which is Skrillex’s label.
