Hagan has teamed up with South African vocalist Aymos for a new single, ‘Sise Ntweni’. Check it out below.
"'Sise Ntweni’ is a club-ready track that highlights how South African music has been a significant source of inspiration for me and partially being the foundations towards my tribal groove," said the British-Ghanian producer. "Pairing up with South African artist, Aymos, Sise Ntweni emphasises the importance of having a strong network of individuals around you.”
“In all walks of life, having a strong network of individuals can help you in times of need," he added. “Aymos’ voice has a universal spiritual presence that can be felt by all ears whether you understand the South African language, Xhosa, or not.”
This new single follows Hagan's 'Forward Focus' EP, which kickstarted new London label One Level last year. The release saw him explore "new sounds beyond the Afro-centric club and funky rhythms of his work to date", and takes in influences from across various parts of the world. He has previously released on labels including Jamz Supernova's Future Bounce and Mr Mitch's Gobstopper.
