Sef Kombo and Louie Dunmore are proud and excited to announce a new label Sondela Recordings. This is an exciting new label which aims to profile Afro-influenced music. Recently launched with their debut track Ezizweni coming from the enigmatic champion of Afro house rhythms Hyenah where he collaborates with Durban, South Africa superstar and Afrotainment founder DJ Tira and Afro-Jazz singer Luke Ntombela. An artist who aligns with the Sondela vision for profiling Afro-influenced music, Hyenah has become an advocate of the genre in Europe, hosting Watergate’s RISE residency, one of the few regular African House club nights in Berlin, and showcasing his impeccable knowledge of the genre with a now infamous Boiler Room set.
Now unveiling Ezizweni, teased by Sef and Louie during their We Dance As One Livestream for Defected, Hyenah and DJ Tira’s blissful production, with its glowing synths and gently popping percussion is a striking slow-burner, as Luke’s ethereal vocal flickers over a hypnotic, crackling beat to make this a memorable, impactful debut release. Show your support for this banging single as all profits will be donated to Bridges For Music, which is a non-profit organisation which seeks to support music initiatives in disadvantaged communities across the globe.
