Mujava is a DJ from Pretoria, South Africa that was brought to my attention by Zane Lowe, on a radio interview he did on Radio 1. Asked whether he was shocked that it had made it abroad, and recieved the response it had he said replied "yes of course". I cannot imagine why. This tune it heavy. It takes you places that a tune hasnt done for a long time. It's got bits of old-school UK electronica, tribal, minimal, some...hell, I don't even really know how to describe it. If you think this is the sound coming out of Africa, don't, according to Mujava, his sound is unique and he is doing something special. With his help there will be more.
The electronic music scene has been dominated by Europeans (and, at times, various Americans) for the longest time now, so might this be the beginning of a new wave of electronic music from elsewhere in the world? Still too soon to say, but this song is intriguing at the very least and hopefully we'll be seeing more from Mujava and his peers soon. The single came out digitally on Warp Records/This Is Music LTD on August 11th, and will be out on 12" next week, on the 15th. I won't post the MP3 for download since friends of mine are ones putting it out, but I'll at least stream it so that you can fall in love with it and then go buy it yourself.
Here is a great RMX by Ashley Beedle though. Dowload that here
