DJ Speir's Review: Muzi's "Milk & Honey" and "Light" Singles
When it comes to the fusion of genres and the creation of sonic landscapes that defy easy categorization, Muzi is a singular talent. With the release of his latest singles, "Milk & Honey" featuring The Last Skeptik and "Light," Muzi invites us into a world of vibrant, genre-fluid music that captivates the senses and touches the soul.
"Milk & Honey" - A Holistic Musical Journey
"Milk & Honey" is a track that effortlessly blends the minimalist hip-hop stylings of The Last Skeptik with Muzi's magnetic production. The result is a soft and earthy soundscape that wraps around you like a warm embrace. With warm synths and muted trumpet melodies, Muzi and The Last Skeptik convey a holistic message that resonates deeply: "In a world of excess, in the land of milk and honey, I choose less. I choose my introverted nature. I choose myself." These words reflect a profound introspection, set against a backdrop of mesmerizing music.
"Light" - A Soulful Dedication
On the flip side, "Light" takes us on a spirited house journey. The rolling percussion, shimmering synths, and groovy basslines create an irresistible rhythm that sets the stage for Muzi's soulful vocals. His seamless transition between English and Zulu adds an extra layer of richness to the track. "Light" is a heartfelt dedication to Muzi's late mother, a celebration of the enduring familial values that have guided him on his journey into parenthood. As Muzi himself explains, "'Light' is an ode to my mother, keeping me sane through the darkest times. My light." The emotion embedded in this track is palpable and moving.

As we groove to the beats of "Milk & Honey" and get lost in the soulful vibes of "Light," the excitement for Muzi's upcoming album, "uMUZI," intensifies.

The following statement was released by the Schiller Institute internationally for immediate mass circulation on September 25.NATO Escalates for World War; Military and Foreign Affairs Experts Release Proposal:‘Ending the War with a Negotiated Peace’All reports indicate that President Biden intends to send U.S. Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS) long-range missiles to Ukraine, with Germany then moving in lockstep, sending Taurus long-range cruise missiles to Kiev, capable of hitting 500 km deep into Russian territory. This escalation by NATO could very well bring NATO into direct warfighting with Russia and—by design or miscalculation—into a nuclear world war.The Schiller Institute is to
Sept. 27, 2023 (EIRNS)—Russia is being left with fewer and fewer options for avoiding direct conflict with NATO. “It appears that Russia is increasingly left with no choice but to engage in direct conflict with NATO on the ground,” Dmitry Medvedev, former Russian President and current Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Security Council, warned in a posting on his Telegram channel yesterday, reported TASS. “NATO has evolved into an openly fascist alliance, resembling Hitler’s Axis, albeit on a larger scale. We are prepared, although the outcome may come at a much higher cost to humanity than in 1945….”He cited the following developments to preface his warning:Canadian animals, led by Prime Minister

However, “as of today, the prospects for such a solution are not visible,” he said. “Ukraine will not be allowed to go for a peace agreement and will continue to be used as a tool against Russia,” Rossiyskaya Gazeta quoted Patrushev as saying.At the same time, he thanked his

Sept. 23, 2023 (EIRNS)—From the outset of his address to the UN General Assembly today, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov identified the underlying cause of conflict in the world, as being the Western powers’ desperation to stop the unstoppable: the nations of the world joining together in new ways—through the BRICS, the SCO, the African Union, ASEAN, CELAC, etc.—so as to develop in freedom. He was equally blunt about the supreme danger: The West not only seeks global NATO domination, but also has revived plans for nuclear war against the Russian Federation.An official translation of his speech is not yet available, but given its strategic importance, we provide here some key quotes via

To be honest, I didn’t know what I was getting into and Indira and I were just following Dennis Speed’s lead. And the madness that was going on all around, it was a little unnerving. But I remember the story of Roland Hayes when he went through something similar—when he made his debut in Berlin and all the Nazis and the racial slurs that were thrown at him when he entered—and he just got very quiet
Sept. 23, 2023 (EIRNS)—Eckard Cordes, former chief of Daimler, blew the whistle on the insanity of the German government policy in an interview yesterday with the Berliner Zeitung. Germany is giving up its lead and sacrificing a key industry, even though demand for the product remains high. “The car industry is the backbone of the German economy,” says Cordes, pointing to the Germans’ lead: “We have the best know-how in the world when it comes to the internal combustion engine.” However, if there is no longer a market for internal combustion engines in Europe, plus extremely high energy costs, companies will pull out of Germany. German workers and their families will fall by the wayside. Ber
