Muziki Africa at FAME Week Africa, taking place in the Host City of Cape Town from the 24 – 26 August 2022, aspires to support up-and-coming artists through their production camp which is a combination of in-studio track recording, talks and masterclasses.
“Finalising your ideas can be a process, that’s why Muziki Africa will be choosing two up-and-coming artists to record in a state-of-the-art studio with producers of Berlin Based label Paradise Sound System. Together with championing independent label, the label behind the international release of the smash hit ‘Osama’ by Zakes Bantwini we want to give young talent the opportunity to create work of International standard. We are ready to hear from you,” says Martin Hiller, Content + Creative Director: Muziki Africa at FAME Week Africa.
As a label, Paradise Sound System has been fortunate to work and create with a wide range of different musicians from many different countries and success levels. “We believe that collaboration is an essential part of learning, sharpening skills, making great music and experiencing that pure joy that only creating can bring. We always try to build bridges with each release we work on,” says Sarah Jane Nicholson, Managing Director: Paradise Sound System Africa.
Other artists’ song releases that the team behind Paradise Sound System has been involved with include Namakau Star, Marcus Harvey, Moonchild Sanelly, Mi Casa, Locnville, GoodLuck, Deep Aztec and Floyd Lavine. Listen to their full catalogue here. Paradise Sound System has also worked on brand campaigns with Women in Music SA and Trace TV Southern Africa.
“Considering who Paradise Sound System has worked with, if you are selected to be part of the Sounds of Muziki 2022 Compilation EP, you know that you are among the best,” says Hiller.
