“Dance music is a reflection of who we are as South Africans,” amapiano pioneer and soul singer-songwriter Aymos tells Apple Music. “I think of African dance music like a bamboo tree that has spread across nations, and I’m proud to be part of that movement of art.” In an exclusive month-long takeover of our Isgubhu playlist, he selects 24 of his favorite dance and electronic tracks from artists like Major League Djz, Josiah De Disciple, De Mthuda, Sir Trill, Dj Stokie, and more. “I chose these songs because they signify a moment of reckoning about the transition of amapiano,” he explains. “The tempo keeps dropping, and the type of log drums used have evolved over time. As a result, it makes it hard for other countries to jump on it and make it sound like the real amapiano unless it’s made by its very own people.” Hear something that gets you moving?
