Rorisang Sechele : “Matter – Of Time Initiative” 2021 Artists
Earlier this year, New Age Artistry embarked on a journey with ubiquity(u.creativespace) to bring you an initiative that sets to uncover South Africa’s emerging talents in the music industry. The annual “Matter – Of Time” initiative consists of two phases with one being a release of the compilation “Matter Mixtape” on the 8th of March. The 2nd phase of the initiative will see all the artists who are part of the compilation Mixtape officially come together to release an album titled “Of Time” set to drop on the 4th of July.
One of the standout creatives featured on this years’ project is Rorisang Sechele who had 3 contributions for the recently released Matter Mixtape. Her well-recieved songs include the opening record “Blue Skies” produced by Ohteeh, an original soulful composition titled “Silence” & an interlude comprised of a mash-up rendition of AKA’s Don’t Forget To Pray and Drake’s Started From The Bottom.
The Mixtape is available to download on the website on the link below:
