With DJ Shimza, you know he packs the production artistry, quality and magic on the decks and turntables. He displayed this craft to full effect with his 4-track EP titled “Ascendent.” One of the bangers of that project of musical art is titled “Secret Melodies.”
For DJ Shimza whose real name is Ashley Raphala, he remains one of Africa’s brightest musical prospects as his multi-talent abilities as a House Producer and DJ looks to further revolutionise the industry.
The Tembisa, Ekurhuleni master of the beats makes “Secret Melodies” a combination of an obscure bass line, but with the intense twist of fractioned rolls and arpeggios which bring an ascending piano progression that quickly blooms into an uplifting symphony.
This is not massively surprising for DJ Shimza who continues to churn out several banging efforts such as his recent collaboration with Caiiro titled “Meu Pedido,” as well as with DJ Maphorisa on “Makhe.”
However, “Secret Melodies” is the latest groove and what better way to get the season into better perspective after all the hustle and bustle of the year than with this dreamy, breezy, smooth and wavy musical indulgence.
