Just as the festive frenzy begins to take hold, South African muso, Toya Delazy, has released her new album, Uncommodified, the third and final chapter of her musical trilogy. For Delazy, the trilogy is a musical documentation of her evolution as a human being.
“My first album, Due Drop, gave me the strength to know myself. The second album, Ascension,enabled me to speak out about all the things I believe in, and now, Uncommodified has liberated me,” she says. “This album embodies my freedom as an artist and devotion to living my purpose and staying true to myself.” Launched under her own label, Delazy Entertainment, Uncommodified celebrates Delazy’s signature jazz/electro/hip-hop style amidst a rich tapestry of international influences, with sound inspiration from Solomun, Black Coffee, Stormzy and Benjamin Clementine.
Delazy produced and co-produced four of the tracks, collaborating with beatsmiths from across the globe to create this eclectic masterpiece. Wes My Meds brings the Durban underground flavour to ‘Need Your Love’, which also features up-and-coming French hip-hop artist KillASon. South African producer, Khwezi adds his international super bass sound to the song, ‘No Follow’, while Ugandan producer, Silas Beats, helped create the hip-hop slammer and first single off the album, ‘Greatest’, which is already being played on local airwaves.
Uncommodified is available for download and streaming on all digital platforms (Apple Music | Spotify | Deezer | Google Play) from 8 December 2017 and on sale in all major music retailers from 15 December 2017.
