The Leeu and Lazarusman man experience is something that was born out of chance and opportunity, a case of right place right time.
Leeu is one of South Africa’s most prominent up and coming underground producers who has spent the last few years between Europe and South Africa harnessing his own idiosyncratic sound that sees him fusing afro centric beats with elements of deep house and experimental electronica. His music and live sets always manage to intrigue and stimulate audiences, and he has collaborated with some of the best producers and artists in the country.
The Lazarusman has become one of the country’s most prominent speakers, whether it is in the form of slam or in electronic music. Over the last couple of years Lazarusman has worked with the likes of Stimming, Soul Clap, Tigerskin, Till Von Sein and has had releases on labels like Diynamic, Noir, Mobilee and Defected. The Lazarusman has managed to perfectly amalgamate the art of spoken word with electronic dance music. The secret to his performances lie in is his ability to freestyle poems on stage, capturing the energy and mood of crowds from all corners of the globe.
When these two individuals meet, it is a fusion of different, styles, sounds, words and energies and possibly something you have never seen or heard before. Listen to their collaboration, released by Soundz Unlimited here.
