Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano have made several trips to South Africa over the years. On their journeys, they got to connect with the new wave of often very tribal and rhythmic house music being produced there right now and even met Heavy-K, one of the country’s biggest producers. You can already guess where this is going; Sunnery, Ryan and Heavy-K struck up a conversation, exchanged ideas and now bring to the table an empowering and hopeful track that speaks of the struggles in South African townships and cries out for change to come: ‘Amanzi’, featuring South African singer-songwriter Just Bheki.
