What artists to look out for in 2014

With the first month of 2014 almost done and dusted, I've wondered what new local acts will heat up the music scene. It's quite a tough call, but iTunes ZA then released the names of these artists to look out for in 2014, and I agree with this. They are going to be hot!

These electro-houe duo recorded an undeniably dancebale debut, I'm So Crunked Up with Lakota Silva.

This charismatic Ugandan rapper crafts a jubilant mix of breezy Afro-pop and hip-hop swagger for her inspired performance.

The Kiffness
Jazzy and groovy, steeped in traditions raging from funky house to African pantsula, The Kiffness' sound is a dance floor delight.

5. Xtatic
Armed with a masterful flow and infectious energy, Kenyan rapper Xtatic is a hitmaker along the lines of Nicki Minaj and Ciara.

6. Anders
The Afrikaans husband & wife team of Wynand and Lindi Delport write lovely ballads, up-tempo country and rollicking roots rock.
