We here at Man Recordings are extremely happy to present the new release by Canadian-Moçambican singer Samito. “I Saw You” is a trans world Afro house and electro inspired club tune about a lost love.

Samito is a singer-songwriter, producer and performer whose distinct blend of electro, afro and indie vibes bear the marks of the three cities he has lived in: Maputo, Cape Town and Montréal. In 2016 Samito made his first mark with his hit “Tiku La Hina” on Costume Records. This record was streamed and played around the world propelling him into the global club scene and countless live stages. 2016 also saw the release of “Cem Cem (feat. Mabika & Muneshine)” on French fashion + music Label Kitsuné. Now he collaborated with Man Rec boss Daniel Haaksman, who co-produced “I Saw You”. To put it short, Samito is out to roll!

“I Saw You” features the big voice of the mighty Mabika, a Geneva native, now based in Montréal too, keeping it 100. This renaissance-man is a performer, recording and VFX artist. Mabika formerly has collaborated with Christian Pronovost as well with Samito on various occasions. For “I Saw You”, Mabika contributes a super vocal spit in Lingala, a language common in the area of Congo.

The original version received three international remix treatments. The Afro house version comes from Man Recordings´own Daniel Haaksman, sizzling hot new London producer Mina (of Enchufada fame) remixed “I Saw You” into a Naija-pop inspired version. And finally Nairobi´s Jinku, one of the leaders of the East African Wave posse who´s currently putting the new sound of Kenya on the international map.

Play it out, and make everybody dance to the sound of Samito!

Early DJ support from Branko, Poirier, Max Le Daron, Emily Dust and Philippe Cohen-Solal (Gotan Project) amongst others.

DAMA DO BLING RULES

Dama Do Bling (“Lady Bling”) is one of the female voices to watch in 2013. The Maputo, Mozambique based vocalist, was quickly dubbed a lusophone Queen Latifah with her direct and sexy flow in Portuguese and English. With her videos prominently featuring helicopters, mansions, and collabos with other Pan-African superstars like Nigeria’s Sasha P and Kenya’s Yvonne, Dama do Bling is considered well her way to a become a large vocalist in African music.

Dama do Bling is mostly focusing on Africa — conquering it, that is. She’s put together an anthem of self-definition, “Moza Girl,” a reggae hip hop cut laced with live drums. In it, she declares, ”I’m a moza girl, chocolate and cinnamon…I can tell you now, I’m the best in town, little bitty boy dance on my ragga…You can feel, you can move on my swagga.”

And to prove it, she’s made a killer music video that tops anything she did with her former team. Not only does the “Moza Girl” video feature half a dozen car explosions and a wealth of video girl booty, she and her dancers rock some of the best fashion in the southern hemisphere. Of course. Because she’s a fashion designer too, and showed her line at fashion week in Maputo last year. Dama do Bling can’t stop, won’t stop. And that’s why she is still the queen of Mozambican hip hop.
