We are into the cold month of July but we keep up with the 254 good vibes to warm you up as you hustle your way through life. Below is our weekly installation of brand new jams that dropped this week and we think you ought to have them in your playlist.
Sailor – Weekendy
Gengetone influencers Sailors last dropped a track 3 months ago which might seem like a long time during these crazy times. The new record they just dropped kicks off with the crew making fun of their short absence. ‘Weekendy’ brings back that rave feeling and looking forward to hitting the clubs. The jam dropped after the president eased the rules on cessation of movement in and out of Nairobi Metropolitan. Check out the jam below.
Vintage Clan Feat Nelly The Goon – Saa Moja
Gengetone is still taking shape and bringing into light new crews to the limelight. The Vintage clan is a group of lads trying to step out of the slum via music and this new jam is a smash hit. From the jump, the heavy bassline sends a feeling of fun to the spine, their delivery uses a staccato rhythm and easy Sheng for us to comprehend. Nelly The Goon from Ochungulo Family carries the record with his fire verse that explores his Ghetto rounds. Listen to the jam below and rate it.
Wanani Remix – Bahati Feat Mejja, Petra, Odi Wa Muranga, Ssaru & Benzema
Gospel star Bahati has grabbed an all-star remix to his tune Wanani that dropped earlier this year. For me, this is not a Gospel track. We have Mejja spitting his verse holding on to his plastic cup filled with a drink. The ladies on the video are showing skin and the featured rappers speak their minds about the said ladies. But the jam is a bop and I’d expect to hear it in the clubs.
Icy Lando Feat Sean Kingston – Options
Fast-rising Kenyan rapper Icy Lando has teamed up with Multi-Platinum Selling Artist Sean Kingston on his pulsing summer club hit “Options”. Icy Lando’s artistic journey is one of hard work and persistence. The rapper, singer, and producer brings out ferocious melodies and pounding drum patterns on the record to gel well with Sean. Listen to the jam below and follow his journey to the world stage.
