Over the last couple of years, house music from the motherland has become a dominating force in the world of dance music. While often the focus is on the house music scene and artists from South Africa, other countries on the African content possess a prosperous scene and up and rising artists as well. Take for example Zimbabwe where Mqondisi 'Skaiva' Sibanda is hailing from. His latest offering "It's love" is a marvelous soul oozing production guaranteed to make you yearn for more thanks to gentle yet spell binding tribal-esque rhythms, the unmistakable emotive vocals of Rudo Nyoni and heavenly keys and chords. Also included are superb remixes by Bhabha Betasweet, Claude-9 Morupisi and Tristy DeSoul, making it next to impossible to pick a favorite version.
