Download Strobe Lights

Whether it’s Ugandan music or music from elsewhere, one thing we like to do on the Saturday Night Mix Show is to bring you good music that you are probably not listening to and this time around, we decided to do it outside the mixes.

Last weekend, we started a new segment called Have You Heard where everyone on the show plays you one song that he likes and tells you why he thinks you should be listening to that particular song. Below is a little information about each of the songs that featured on the segment:

Strobe Lights – Murder 4 Fun (M4F) ft. DoublEdge & Skinnie

“Strobe Lights” is a fast-paced Afro-beat song with a party-theme that talks about the party life and the dynamics of a night out after a long week of work with a little emphasis on the girls that are always looking to get the free drinks and more from the guys.

The song’s production was handled by Tal-G & Skinnie with recording done at Infinite Studios. The song features 4 rap verses from Haze, Tal-G, Syf and Slim Neezy who were the four members of the group M4F. The song has at least four languages including English, Luganda, Rukiga and Kiswahili.

Do Some Ting – A Pass

This is a dancehall song that we can call A Pass’ attempt on the Moskato riddim. A Pass does well with the writing on the verses and the delivery. Seeing as this is a riddim that has been jumped on by Reggae/Dancehall heavyweights like Konshens and Voicemail, it’s safe to say that he delivered a result that is worth mentioning in the same sentence with the other songs on the riddim.

Ugandan music

Bando – A Boogie ft. Don Q

A song by A Boogie about how deep he is in the business of making and selling crack cocaine, from the late nights at the “trap-house” cooking to spending the profits and his troubles with the law.

Check out these songs and feel free to let us know what you think about them in the comments section, especially for the picks that fall under Ugandan music.
