It’s the most unique and compelling dancefloor variant happening in South Africa today – a sound that’s distinctly Mzansi.

Since House Afrika and Born in Soweto introduced AmaPiano to the wider world with the debut compilation in this series, the sound has exploded. Now a staple sound in taxis and across townships, it’s even piquing the interest of those previously disinterested in dance sounds.

It’s also gaining plenty of new protagonists, many of whom are on display here. So previously highlighted artists like Gaba Cannal and Mfr Souls are joined by promising newcomers like Audiogasmic Soundz, El Maestro, Tumza D’Kota and Da Musiqal Chef.

Whoever the producers, you know this label is only going to select the best and brightest, and the AmaPiano sound is steady: deep, downtempo, melodic, monolithic – it demands to be danced to. Here it is then: the sound of the South African summer.
