One of the most highly recommended live mix DJs in South Africa, DJ Doowap is ready to launch her debut EP Mood Swings
One of the most highly recommended live mix DJs in South Africa, Khetsiwe Morgan AKA Doowap is a British-South African radio host (YFM), TV host (One Mic SABC1), hair artist and DJ dabbling in hip hop, electronic, kwaito and gqom.
This summer, Doowap enlisted the expertise of Zain, Daev Martian, Ndabz, Xplosive DJ, Mr Allofit and Koek Sista for her debut EP release dropping 29th November: Mood Swings. Fashioned out of her multi-faceted background, this new direction into production is led by two tracks that are already out: “4cus” and “ Xoxa”.
“Xoxa’ is the first track Mr Allofit and Doowap created together in a style reminiscent of the golden age of kwaito. When asked about her musical influences, Doowap explains: “I appreciate how you can feel the emergence of the digital age within 80’s music with the use of synthesizers in pop and electronic. Tracks at that time were a beautiful balance of analog and digital in synth-pop productions. Fashion, art and music really came together during this time, with art pop, Michael Jackson, Basquiat and supermodels all hanging out and inspiring each other, and I feel at home in it. With this EP, it’s a growth; a follow-on progression of Doowap the multi-dimensional being, who dances, DJs, and drops original music inspired by my appreciation for the 80s and its multidimensional creativity.”
Recording in English, French and Zulu to convey the message that love is it’s own language and does indeed connect us all, Doowap’s original productions are full of colour, charisma and coy charm. Now we can’t wait for this Mood Swings EP to drop!
Mood Swings, release November 29th via Black Major. You can pre-order it now.
