South African Ampiano producer, DJ Black Low has releaased a new video for the the track ‘Jaiva Low’, which will be on this forthcoming debut album on the 7th of May through Aweseom Tapes of Africa.
The 11-track album comes at a time when South African electronic music is being fundamentally disrupted. Amapiano, the electronic music movement which first gained popularity with a small, core group of followers, now dominates the mainstream. Well-known and pervasive, amapiano borrows from a diverse palette of musical styles which are popular in South Africa’s largely Black townships- jazz, kwaito, dibacardi, deep and afro house among them.
