SA hip hop artist, Vitu, is getting ready to drop off his new tape called Vinyls & Swishers which is a 16 track mixtape that samples some of his favourite Jazz records from over the last year. It’s said that he spent the last year listening to a new Vinyl every day and sampled some of the stand-out records. Furthermore, he explained how this mixtape plays out best during late-night drives and smoke sessions which was what influenced the name of the project.
“I have always loved Jazz and my debut project “This Time Next Week” was the first time I experimented with Jazz samples. When making that project I was looking for a term to best describe the feeling the music gave me and coined the term “Ghost Jazz” and have used the term to describe the feeling the music gives me” – Vitu
Vinyls & Swishers will be his 5th official release and features UK based Rapper Bi0Ch3mic, UK Based spoken word artist Ovyuki as well as Arcade Music label mate Hoax, Cape Town based Rapper Lakei and East Rand Rapper Thomas Hazey.
The mixtape is completely produced by Vitu and will be released on the 15 of May 2020
