Jumping Back Slash – Shosholozaaaaaaa [MUSIC]

Jumping Back Slash

Kwaito music has traditional roots in South Africa, beginning in Johannesburg in the 1990s.  It’s a variant of house music that uses African sounds and samples.  An awesome musician that recently caught my attention, Jumping Back Slash, has been producing kwaito house music that mixes up lively traditional songs with classic US house.  Check out this sick track, I expect great things from this artist in the future!
