PREMIERE: KaeB reworks three South African classics for his REWORK EP

Three words: passion, determination and perseverance. KaeB is a personification of those three words and over a period of a few weeks, he has proven time and time again that he wants your attention and not only that, he wants to be great. We were expecting another track today for his brilliant campaign called #CozyFridays but he over-delivered this time around with the release of an EP called REWORK.

The EP is special because he samples three tracks from South African artists who are now late, namely: Mandoza, Lebo Mathosa and Brown Dash. The first track on the EP is titled HOPE rwrk where he reworked Mandoza’s inspirational track, Hope. The second track he samples and reworks Brown Dash’s smash Kwaito hit Vum Vum, giving it a fresh modern spin and bounce. The third and final track is an incredible rework of Lebo Mathosa’s most memorable song, Ntozabantu.

The work that KaeB is doing is important because he is reminding us of all our fallen musical heroes. He is highlighting the significance of our own history and heritage, while delivering work that could fare well on an international stage. We all need to familiarise ourselves with the Mzansi Mnandi sound.
