Like every other big name in the Piano scene this year, Mas Musiq has set out to thrill his audience with a new album titled “Auti ‘eSharp”. The talented DJ and producer have always been the kind to let his Music speak for him. We believe that it genuinely does.
With the new album, he aims to show how much he has grown as one of the most sought-after hitmakers in the country. He lets his production talent show and takes things slow all through the very blissful project. In our opinion, this is one great effort for someone named after Music. He proves that the meaning of his name is not lost on him.
The cover photo for Mas Musiq’s new “Auti ‘eSharp” album might be one of the simplest to decipher, but there seems to be more to it than meets the eye. Of course, everyone knows that it is never easy deciding what photo should be attached to an artist’s project. So, you could say that everything from the pose to the gaze is well thought out and executed.
Mas Musiq is shot staring at a reflection of himself in the mirror. It sort of shakes you up thinking how he can stand gazing at all that talent. The photo seems to have been taken in a restroom. The size of the room proves this. We could be wrong. The primary thing about it is his pose and fixed gaze, which we can see clearly from the reflection.
Just looking at the guest features on the “Auti ‘eSharp” album, you can tell that they were all well picked. That could be for a purpose that we still cannot tell. The featured acts include Kabza De Small, DJ Maphorisa, Babalwa M, Young Stunna, Bongza, Nkulee 501, Skroef28, Musa Keys, Snenah, Sino Msolo, TO Starquality, Madumane, Seekay, Daliwonga, Sir Trill, Major League, Aymos, Nia Pearl, Soa Mattrix, Tyler ICU, Corry Da Groove, Vyno Miller, Hypesoul, Reece Madlisa, Mpura, Madumane, and Mzansi’s very own baby boy, Vigro Deep.
Production and Vocal Delivery
