Messive Muzik is a group of young music producers whose aim is to have a massive impact on the music industry.

Ten producers from Gugulethu, Khayelitsha and Philippi have established an umbrella body that showcases the talents possessed by local artists.

Fundile “Furah” Makeleni, Wanda “SirBondas” April, Siphe Tebeka, Lwando “L-Dee”Daweti, Sphamandla “C-Pha” Mpulampula, Lizwi “ISO-1900” Nyandu, Sinalo “MuziqBlend” Majova, Zingisa “Zingdeep” April, Olwethu Blaqkendi Ntsukumbini and Paul “Jovis” Tshaba are the members of this crew, established in October last year.

Makeleni told City Vision that the movement might be new but these producers have been around.

“Most us have been in the music industry for a long time making music and are well known in house music circles. The problem is we hardly see any success in the local music scene for producers,” he said.

As a result of this, they have established the movement to escalate the creativity of underrated townships and unite communities through music, he said.

“Our members have been releasing singles and the reception has been good. We are now working towards releasing a compilation album at the end of the year.

In the mean while we will continue to release individual singles and collaborations with each other and other artists locally,” he said.

The group’s next big move is the release of a music video by L-Dee featuring Siphe Tebeke, formerly with the group Deep Consol. The song is entitled Me andamp; You and features Anni and the filming of the video will begin on 27 June.

Makeleni said that the group’s strongest point is the diversity within the collective. “We are a group of musicians with totally different. “We have something for almost every house music fan as some of us are producing Deep, Tribal, Soulful and even vocal,” said Makeleni.
