With its slow-paced throbbing beats, amapiano is the genre to be involved in at the moment and has seen pop acts and hip hop artists like Cassper Nyovest crossing over to join forces with already established amapiano producers Kabza De Small, DJ Maphorisa and Major League DJz.
In January, we published a playlist with the first amapiano hits of the year. Tracks that made it on include ‘Emcimbini’, ‘Tender Love’, ‘Phoyisa’, ‘Going In’ and ‘Umhlaba Wonke’, which have also been featured here alongside the latest big releases.
This playlist will grow throughout the year, so make sure you bookmark it for your continuous listening pleasure.
