EXIT and Fishman, who have rapidly becoming household names in the Namibian kwaito industry, have joined forces to record their first-ever extended play single.
An extended play or EP single is a musical recording that contains more music than a single, but is too short to qualify as a full studio album.
The feel good album titled “The Movement” will give their fans a taste of what to expect from their next individual albums.
“The Movement” has six tracks, two of which are bonus tracks. M-Jay produced the main tracks, while Maj Beatz produced the bonus tracks.
The two artists who hold each other in high regard met when Fishman recorded his first album at Exit’s studio.
Exit and Fishman have often featured on each other’s songs on their previous albums, but the EP album is the first joint production by the promising collaboration.
The artists see the album not only as a project that benefits both of them but also the entire music industry as it paves the way for the whole music fraternity to unite for a common goal, which is building the industry.
Exit and Fishman’s plan is to collaborate with as many Namibian artists and international artists as possible – that is why they feature Brickz on one of the bonus tracks.
Brickz is a multiple award-winning South African kwaito artist known for hits like “Sweety My Baby”, “Left Right” and “Tjovitjo”.
“We need the world’s greatest musicians to make the world’s greatest music,” the duo says.
The two also wish to embark on individual projects such as launching their own clothing lines, which they have started with the help of Djokic Bozidara Dragan commonly known as Antonio.
They say their relationship with Antonio is a blessing because he is not only helping them realise their dreams, but he has also helped many other Namibian artists and continues to do so.
For the past few years, Antonio through his company Antonio Art has been actively involved in manufacturing, branding and selling local labels, T-shirts, caps, jerseys and other branded products at his shops around the country.
The album, scheduled for launching this week at Chez Ntemba VIP Lounge, was produced in partnership with Deal Done Records, Rockaz and Antonio Art.
