Get Physical Music kicks off 2022 with Thandi Draai’s landmark ‘Africa Gets Physical Vol. 4’ which features some of the most exciting names in the South African house scene.
Producer, vocalist and singer Draai has been a core part of the label this year. It is where she has already released her ‘Jika’ EP as well as collaborative singles from this mix with DJ Beekay and Candy Man. Before now she has won several high-profile competitions – one of which saw her get mentorship from Wyclef Jean. She has also been on MistaJam’s Africa Week on the BBC, appeared on hit South African show Masters of Spin and is currently a resident DJ on Ukhozi FM’s Bhampa2Bhampa show every Friday, which is the leading radio station in Africa. As such she is a preeminent light in the vibrant South African scene and is now getting international acclaim as the country’s first woman of colour to release solo tracks.
Says Thandi of this adventurous new selection, “What a time for Afro Tech House, it’s alive and vibrating through the whole Universe right now. I am super honored to be compiling this year’s Africa Gets Physical Vol 4 and for the opportunity to work with such amazing artists from right across the African continent. I’m coming through unapologetic about our African electronic dance music. Camagu!”

‘Africa Gets Physical Vol. 4’ will be available after the 21st of January HERE.
