DJ Milkshake is back with a brand new single – just in time for the party season. Hot on the heels of his chart-smasher, ‘Living On The Edge’ – which hot top spot both locally and all over Africa. After months of work in the studio, DJ Milkshake has unveiled his next single, a collaboration with So Random called ‘20 Something’.
On this track he brings his rhymes to the mic for the very first time. The track is a nod to his crazy, carefree twenties: “I’m almost thirty and I feel like my twenties were by far the best years of my entire life,” he explains “this song is all about celebrating the best years of your life – regardless of age.”
The track features the fresh new talents, So Random –a duo (producer Tactics and emcee A-Ball) originally from Durban, who Milkshake met while performing there.
“They fetched me from the airport because I was DJing at the same club where they were due to open for me” he recalls, “on the way they were trying to get me to hear their music but I wasn’t really interested because I had earphones on listening to my own music. Later that night I did get to hear a beat that I totally fell in love with and told them I want to work on something with them using it.”
After a year of back and forth, the beat produced by Tactics is now the foundation for ‘20 Something’. “The song will make you feel good” says Milkshake, “its energetic catchy and has a simple chorus. Hopefully it will be a summer anthem for parties clubs and radio stations this festive season.”
The single will be available for download through iTunes and a music video for ’20 Something’ will hit screens before the end of the year.
