TAPIWA Drives us to Rave with his latest Single "Dancehall"

There is a wave of Afrotech fever slowly making its way across Zimbabwe, heralded by the return of old favourites in festivals like Neverland and the sprouting of new events like Afro-Beyond. Key to this renaissance of dance music in the country is the gifted DJs and producers. One of them is the up-and-comer TAPIWA.

TAPIWA recently released a single titled Dancehall. Infused with Caribbean and African influences, it's a song that calls us to rave.

Vibrant in tempo from the beginning to the end, with just a sprinkle of vocals, Dancehall sets up TAPIWA as the puppet master with us as his willing rinser. For 2 minutes 37 seconds, you're captured in a torn universe as Dancehall not only has everything we love about the current wave of Afro-tech but it has a retro feel to it.

The song was almost 5 years in the making, as Tapiwa created it back in 2018 and then gave it a makeover this year before it was finally released.

I originally made Dancehall back in 2018 and I remember at the time wanting to make a record that was full of energy with a carnival/tribal feel to it. A lot of elements in it now go along with a lot of music I was listening to and inspired by at the time but with an updated take for 2023. - TAPIWA

The track debuted on BBC Radio and TAPIWA described it as an honour to be featured on such a platform.

Pretty insane honestly. I’ve never expected my music to be presented on a such big platform. Even more so considering that Jeremiah named it his Rising Record of the Week. I was incredibly honoured by it and it makes the whole experience of investing time in the craft more worthwhile. - TAPIWA

TAPIWA's last release, a collaboration with Warner Case was playlisted by Martin Garrix and garnered over 100k streams.
