After releasing his mammoth 31 track album in 2020 entitled To the World and Beyond (which earned the artist over 50 million streams, nominations, and awards, and global press recognition) the momentum has not slowed down. South Africa’s beloved Afro-futuristic inter-galactic captain Sun-EL Musician has been hard at work diving deep into his past influences and future sounds and really homing in on defining what he believes to be a new genre AEDM (African Electronic Dance Music), which is now live as his latest musical offering.
“African Electronic Dance Music, to me I would define it as not just a sound that designates a single genre but more of a sound that encompasses a style of African elements infused with EDM, but it’s a modern way of exporting the African Dance sound (House Music) to the rest of the world through giving it that African traditional elements of drums, rhythm, and culture,” shares Sun-EL Musician.
The 11 track AEDM EP is interspersed with some strong electronic/afro house instrumentals and some striking new driving tracks which show us that Sun-EL Musician is clearly carving out a lane of his own.
Look out for ‘Bestfriend’ featuring Msaki, ‘Higher’ featuring Simmy and ‘I Like It Anyway’ featuring Ami Faku which all hint at past success with fellow femme collaborators with whom he created award-winning and well-loved hits like ‘Ubomi Abumanga’, ‘Emkhaya’ and ‘Into Ingawe’, interspersed with some strong electronic/afro house instrumentals to see in the summer season.
