“You know how Amapiano started? The township DJs play a song with 125 beats per minute [BPM]. Then you would find other DJ’s play the same beat at 115 BPM,” he explained, adding that they would also often make mixtapes with a slower tempo.”

“First it was remixed then Mdu came up. I don’t know what happened, I don’t know how he figured out the log drum. Amapiano has always been there but he’s the one who came up with Log drum,” explained Kabza.

“These boys like experimenting, they always check out new plug in’s. So when Mdu figured it out, he ran with it. And when I got it, I jumped on the bandwagon.”
