After the launch of the Black is Brown compilation Vol.1 pre-order last week, Today DJ, Producer, certified hitmaker Mr Jazziq re-introduces the Black is Brown label, new fresh talent and new music with the official release of the project. Full compilation is available now on all digital platforms. Listen Here.
Black is brown has not only been responsible for the biggest tracks of 2020 but our lives. The record label brought us Mr JazziQ debut EP, 0303’ Which was one of the breakout successes of 2020 with more than three million streams (as of March 2021). It also showcased Mr JazziQ’s ability to find the perfect creative collaborators on tracks like ‘No 9’ and ‘Askies’ featuring Moonchild Sanelly.
The latter happened with Reece Madlisa and Zuma – two artists who Mr JazziQ worked with on Ama Roto (2020), co-released by Black is Brown Entertainment and packed with some of the biggest hits of the past year, including “ Zlele” and “Sithi Sithi”. The label continued to dominate the airways, streets and streams in 2020 to present with the biggest tracks to date like “Umsebenzi Wethu’ and “Vsop” featuring Busta 929, Reece Madlisa, Zuma, Mpura, Riky Rick and 9umb.
When asked about the plans for the label Mr JazziQ said:
“Specifically, I want to turn the label, Black is Brown Entertainment “into the biggest label in the world”. “Not just the biggest label in South Africa – but the biggest in the world,” he emphasises.”
It is evident through the Black is Brown compilation vol.1 that the label continues to give the audiences breakout talent, hits that resonate with the streets, the culture and ultimately the masses. The project features smash hit ‘Sharker Smart’ by Mr Jazziq x Djy Ma’Ten x M.J. and guest appearances from Mellow, Sleazy and Sizwe Alakine.
The release also introduces newcomers under the label Kay Invictus, Djy Zan SA, Phoenix SA, Tsiki XII, Lemaza, M.J and Djy Biza.
