Live the Music

Live The Music represents this talented music maker’s skills – his clipped house beats, generous basslines, propulsive percussion and breezily hypnotic chords form the perfect bedrock for an array of vocalists to exercise their song-craft, and there are lyricists galore on this release. Monique Bingham is back on the hook-heavy Mixed Up Chick, while other lesser-knowns shine in the confines of these clever tracks, including Nana Mbawuli, Pomakazi, Berita, Sakhile Moleshe, Bantu Soul and 2Bad.

There are a few extra special inclusions on Live The Music as Mobi applies his rhythmic science to remixes of Mi Casa & Ladysmith Black Mambazo (the memorable My Sugar) and breakout Afro / R&B star Tresor on hit single Never Let Me Go.

There’s one more reason this album will be the year’s essential Afro-house purchase: a collaboration with drum duo Black Motion, and as one would expect it’s an explosion of tribal percussion, dramatic house synths and distinctly Mzansi motifs.
The album has also reached Gold
