Big Skeez has further teased his forthcoming debut mixtape, Work Don’t Stop, with the single ‘Hello’, which draws much of its power from the way it plays with amapiano, a hybrid of deep house and jazz that has its roots in the townships of South Africa.

‘Hello’ is both deeply personal and wildly sensual, providing a soundtrack to both intimacy and moments of introspection. That’s the name of the game for Big Skeez – his music has always had a uniquely self-assured quality, and leaps effortlessly between different styles and genres.

Big Skeez – ‘Hello’

‘Hello’ is described as a riposte to Big Skeez’s critics. In a statement, he says the song is addressed to those “haters that want me to fail.” The salutation of the title is a reminder for these naysayers that he’s not going anywhere.

The single comes with an accompanying video, a collaboration with creative director Basjia Almaan. Featuring an all-Sudanese cast, the video has been described as a celebration of “the culture … and those who are a part of it and continue to create it.”

The Eora-based artist has been gathering steam for some time now, amassing a legion of followers and garnering positive press for his experimental, rich sound. The full-length mixtape, Work Don’t Stop, will hit streaming services on Friday, 10th November via NLV Records.
