White Shadow by Beatenberg ft. Msaki
Beatenberg have shared a new song from their upcoming EP and announced a big run of tour dates, including a return to their home country, South Africa in December! “White Shadow” is the third song from the bands’ first release in four years and follows on from previous singles ‘Time Machine‘ (July) and ‘The Lighthouse of Alexandria‘ (June).
“White Shadow” features South African composer, singer and songwriter Msaki who also stars in the video alongside the band’s vocalist, Matthew Field.
“We started with some sessions in Cape Town and finished the production and made the video in London. The song is on the longer side for us and goes through some twists and turns; the lyrics are similarly winding and seem to sprawl across a variety of landscapes and feelings. This seems fitting given the time and geographic span of the making of the song,” says frontman Matthew Field.

Toro by Sho Madjozi
South African rap star Sho Madjozi just shared her latest single, “Toro,” featuring DDG via Epic Records.
The critically acclaimed artist first burst into the music scene in 2017 and became an act to watch because of her unique flow, and her keen eye for vibrant fashion styles that fused traditional African attires with modern spins.
“Toro” is the rapper’s first English release since “John Cena,” a record that quickly became a viral sensation after its release. Over the years, the rapper has continued to push the envelope and sonically break barriers by experimenting with her flow, cadence, and structure. On this record, fellow Epic Records signee DDGalso makes an appearance, and the two ride the wave of the beat in a memorable way.
