Maniza - Street-Sweepers-Stand - Independent (Future Lounge)
FUTURE LOUNGE - POP DANCE - The best thing about music is discovering new artists who are truly creative, Maniza is very much an artist who has that special ability to write new interesting songs wrapped around new melodies. We especially love "Stand" and "Pet, The Boy Tree" for their Future Lounge vibrations. The 120bpm "Street Sweeper" track with its infectious groove would have sounded incredible as a 12" vinyl record on that legendary Paradise Garage sound system where it would have become an underground classic... Great work Maniza - more please... Kings
BIOG - Maniza is making significant waves. She lives in a space where music, art, social consciousness and a drive to change the world for a better place, all meets in one space. Maniza has just released the highly rhythmic single Street Sweeper, from her full-length album Street-Sweeper’s Going Home, produced by Ludwig Bouwer. Born in South Africa, this 22-years young artist is a global citizen, and as such has set her goals on positive global change, via music and art as her vehicle to open humanity’s eyes to the social and economic imbalances so evident in modern society.
Just as Maniza does not fit into a single box, her music echoes her passion to colour outside the lines and conventions of stereotypes. Using a palette of electronic and synth-based beats and textures, blended with found sounds as well as undertones of jazz, classical, hip-hop and African rhythmic elements, Maniza is already surpassing boundaries through her Bjorg-esque style of musical storytelling, while at the same time unapologetically opening the audience’s minds with her brilliant, and often, straight shooting lyrics. As a classical trained pianist and violinist, Maniza is a singer/songwriter with an unstoppable passion to ignite a spark for the betterment of the world.
The world needs to listen to Maniza, her music and her message. Not just keeping her sights locally – Maniza has also released her single Internationally via the UK and US Club Circuit and is hoping to make inroads there with her crossover sound.
