Every Wednesday Mams Music Gallery introduce producers to its readers and this week Klaas Thoka introduce Amapiano / Broken / Afro House duo Fusion Tone.
There is no dance without music. Music is the only thing that “when it hits you, you feel no pain,” says Lady Zamar. Without a producer there is no music and without music there is very little soul healer in a human spirit.
This week we have a duo that has been making people dance and not only that, their song (Bana ba Kajeno featuring Mokakati Jack, Sasasa and J Cee) has for over a week been play listed on eTV’s popular drama Rhythm City in October 2018. Fusion Tone answer six questions about his work.
Lucky Nduli (DJ Small X) and Thabane Mokonyane (DJ Mabulala)
MOTIVATION FOR PRODUCING?
Small X: Growing up in Mamelodi had a great effect on my Journey as a producer here in Mamelodi. I thought to myself, I can actually do this and enjoy it. That is when I taught myself music production and here I am today still doing it.
Mabulala: It is pretty much the same story as Small X’s one. Growing up in Mamelodi was such an inspiration. It basically motivates you to yearn for yourself. I chose being a music producer from my teenage years up until today I am still doing it.
PART OR FULL TIME JOB?
Small X: it is a full time job for both of us. We spend most of our time producing.
FIVE ARTISTS YOU WORKED WITH?
Mabulala: We have worked with a lot of artists and we are actually proud of all of them because they all taught us different personalities and different results. We are just grateful to all of them.
