Muzi Interblaktic North America Tour

June 25 @ 11:30 am 11:30 pm

ROFHIWA PRESENTS: MUZI / GEMYNII

South African DJ- producer- musician, MUZI “The Zulu Skywalker” offers the world glimpses of the future, wielding sound to suggest alternative universes and encounters with our best and dreaming selves. A self-proclaimed Afrofuturist, blending urban electronic music with South African musical styles – from Maskandi to Kwaito, House music and the Bubblegum sound of the 1970’s and 80s. Muzi defines a new generation of South African sound – a bold vision for African music. With cosigns from Black Coffee, Chris Martin, Damon Albarn and Stormzy, regular features in coveted music blogs including Noisey, Afropunk, OkayAfrica, and Complex – his star continues to rise and transcend into the future he articulates in his curation of sound. Speaking to journalist Sajae Elder for Fader Magazine, Muzi gives form to his vision: “I love space, and travel and I read a lot about galaxies and black holes and all these things, I thought it would be really cool to sort of merge how proud I am of my Africanness with my otherworldly aspects… inspired by Sun-Ra and Earth, Wind and Fire, and that sort of era where people were just really, really crazy about Afrofuturism.”

“Interblaktic is sentimental and future-looking. The music feels familiar and faraway. There’s a poetic blend of Zulu and English [..] A wonderful opus full of surprises. Whether it’s the spaceship landing on “Zupiter”, the stormtrooper blaster rifles on “Interblaktic”, Muzi has done all he can to bring you into his orbit.” But Muzi says it best in his refrain. “Tell me what you really want to do Picture perfect, I enjoy the view Red lips, kinky hair, black skin, free as hell Love it or move over”
