South Africa’s Black Motion on “the new dawn for African artists,” Detroit songstress Nikki O, Chicago duo Dance Loud, Plague Ravers and the DJs who love them, the essential Angel Moraes and more inside the new issue of 5 Mag, out today.
Here’s a preview of what’s inside the latest 5 Mag:
🔴 The Cover Story: Black Motion: The Last Chapter & a New Beginning. The South African duo celebrates 10 years of healing music with a groundbreaking album and a brilliant remix of the St Germain classic “Sure Thing.” Because the last chapter marks a new beginning.
🔴 #TheMic: Nikki O: This Is Some Detroit Fire. Her voice is the fuel for underground eruptions from Moodymann and Alton Miller to Javonntte and now an album with UK soul disciple thatmanmonkz. Nikki O has left her mark on some of the best deep house records of the last fifteen years.
🔴 Namaste Bros: Superstar DJs and Plague Raves in Paradise. The party never ended for the rich — or the superstar DJs capitalizing on slack lockdowns in Mexico. But they don’t seem eager to talk about it.
🔴 Dance Loud: This Moment & The Next. The Chicago-based duo Dance Loud survived adversity to release their best work. After “The Moment,” they’re just getting started.
🔴 Angel Moraes: Life In Stereo. Brooklyn-born & bred, the producer, DJ, club owner and sound engineer leaves behind a staggering legacy in the house music scene. Plus: SELECT: 16 Essential Tracks from Angel Moraes.
