Musa Keys celebrates birthday with release of Vula Mlomo (Shimza Remix)

Musa Keys has released the remix to his hit single, Vula Mlomo, featuring Sir Trill and Nobantu Vilakazi, which has been remixed by afro-tech house producer-DJ, Shimza.

Musa Keys took to Instagram on Friday, 30 July 2021, to celebrate his birthday with a live session. The Instagram Live session coincided with the release of the Vula Mlomo (Shimza Remix), featuring Sir Trill and Nobantu Vilakazi. Shimza being part of the remix was a surprise, as the producer-DJ previously affirmed having no intentions of venturing into the current dominant sound of amapiano.

However, as much as Shimza might have finally folded, he ensured that his venture into amapiano still has references to his signature deejaying style of introducing afro-tech house elements. Therefore, with the remix, the only elements that Shimza stayed true to were the vocal arrangements of the song. Furthermore, with the instrumentation, he remixed it to better fit into his musical playing sensibilities.

Therefore, the overall listening experience is not about an ebb and flow as in the original. Rather, this single highlights the instrumentation until it hits a crescendo, before playing out to the end.

The single is available for purchase on Apple Music.
