Tatizo Pesa, which features 14-year-old singeli MC Dojo Janja, is out this week.
Mitta is a core producer from Dar Es Salaam's Sisso Studios and innovates with the singeli genre that's bubbled out of the ghettos of the Tanzanian capital. In his 2017 feature on the Nyege Nyege collective, RA's Aaron Coultate described singeli as bearing some resemblance to "kuduro, shangaan electro and even gabber," its sped-up rhythms constructed on second-hand Casio keyboards. Mitta's unique take on the genre also acts as an introduction to a rising singeli MC, 14-year-old Dogo Janja.
Nyege Nyege gave the Sounds Of Sisso compilation a vinyl release in late 2017.
Watch the video for Tatizo Pesa's title track, featuring Janja.
