Move! (Official Music Video):

Batuk, from Johannesburg are back with a new 7-track EP titled Move!, an ode to the township roots that shaped them. The EP is a charged take on alternately midtempo/kwaito grooves, hi-energy beats and township funk. Manteiga’s charged flows and Mathambo’s beats will have everyone busting out their special dance moves. Following their debut album, which took a pan-African approach with the sounds and collaborations, Move! EP and their upcoming Kasi Royalty album are about proudly representing a range of vibrant South African township sounds.

Batuk is an acclaimed music project from Johannesburg, South Africa, lead by vocalist/rapper Manteiga and producer Spoek Mathambo, who having brought their riotous take on modern African music to stages around the world, are back with a new vision.

Their upcoming album Kasi Royalty, to be released in May 2018 is a dedication to the vibrant neighborhoods in Johannesburg where Manteiga and Spoek Mathambo grew up. Kasi is a slang word for the township. The townships are the heart of musical culture in South Africa and draw a sound map of unparalleled richness across the country. Batuk went digging into many sounds for the Kasi Royalty songs. More urban than their debut, this album is also largely inspired by kwaito, a South African derivative of house music with slower tempo and deeper bass. Born in the township of Soweto, at the time of Mandela's election, kwaito served as a soundtrack for the emancipation of black youth. With their hybrid of rap, afro-house, soul and zouk, Batuk brings kwaito up to date.
