A few weeks ago we featured Maramza on the cover of Bubblegum Club. Maramza has played an important role in pushing South Africa’s electronic music. This 11 track mix demonstrates the work of a producer who has sonic passion flowing through his veins.
For a little more insight we spoke to Maramza about the mix and what he has planned next.
Not all the tracks. I produced Zaki’s “Focus”, remixed Snapbvck’s “Noise ft Red Robyn” and Dunn Kidda’s “Laanie Level”, bootlegged Kaytra’s Track Uno and obviously produced my own joints on the mix. But Fosta’a “Sjoko Mission”, Dunn Kidda’s “Laanie Level Pt. 2” and Jumping Back Slash’s “Come Rescue Me” are just tracks I really feel.
No, not at all intentional. But its nice to think of it that way. I guess it makes sense with the old-school mid-tempo feel and future beats kind of vibe. That’s dope.
Last year was cool, I remixed some tracks, I produced some tracks for other artists, I collabed, I created some of my own music. So I guess I just wanna repeat that and release as much nice music as I can. I love to DJ wherever there is an open-minded crowd (as in a crowd that doesn’t get miff when I play that old-school mid-tempo or future beats). If I get a couple of gigs a month, I’m more than happy. Every now and then I catch feelings like any artist, craving more gigs and more exposure, but I’m at my best when I’m just grateful to get booked and have my music heard. Really want to help Kwaai-Fi put out a couple of interesting comps this year. That’s a biggie. You can hold me to that.
