Set to premiere on Channel O in June, Remix.Studio is a new concept that celebrates multi-dimensional creativity by providing a fluid space for beloved African musicians – established and emerging – to expand on fan-favourite anthems by reinterpreting them in a live setting, both sonically and visually.
Taking the idea of the conventional remix and pushing its limits, the concept is unique in that, in addition to the never-before-heard live rendition of the song that each episode will focus on, the artist is also styled in 3 different bespoke outfits that add a vibrant visual dimension to the remix experience.
Coupled with colourful graphics and sing-along lyrics on-screen; bonus verses, melodic interpolations, a cappella cadences, stripped-down ballads and masterful auto-tuned vocals are among the diversely inspired deliveries you can expect to experience from some of the continent’s most exceptional artists.
These will include, AKA, Sauti Sol, Tresor, Tshego, Lucille Slade, Sió, Aubrey Qwana, Muzi, Taylor Jade and Dee Koala.
Each episode will also feature an exclusive interview with each performer that will allow viewers insight into the artistic process of crafting their song, as well as the deeper meanings behind the lyrics.
Remix Studio is set to premiere on Channel O on Friday, June 5th at 17h00, and repeats on Saturday at 15H00.
