2019, 2018. Most recent Ampiano Songs, Album Mixes. South African house music is known for its capacity to continually rethink itself. What’s more, 2019 has been the same. Another sound which appears to have begun in the capital city of Pretoria is assuming control over the wireless transmissions and gathering goers in Mzansi can’t get enough of it. The sound which is known as “amapiano” is a blend of profound house, gqom all blended in with the snazzy, deep solid of a piano.
Craftsmen like Kabza De Small, Kwiish SA, Tall Ass Tee and The Soul Dictators are putting a different take in the way of life of South African music and they are making another wave in the house music scene. Tunes like Umshove, Shaya, Gong (Iskhathi) are setting the wireless transmissions ablaze and music darlings everywhere throughout the nation are succumbing to them consistently. From taxi rides in Soshanguve and Mamelodi to road slams in Mapetla and Mohlakeng the amapiano sound is re-framing the sound of house music in South Africa and assuming control over the late spring more than ever.
