DJ M-Point Dishes up "Amapiano Vs. Kwai-Jazz Mix Session"

Hello and Moloweni to all! This is Matthew Key AKA DJ M-Point from "The Loxion Music Mix Show.” In October 2020, I co-hosted the Afropop Worldwide episode “G.C.’s Roadshow: From Kwaito to Amapiano," which documented the newest fusion of kwaito and contemporary jazmusic, Amapiano, and an earlier predecessor, kwai-jazz.

Earlier this month, I compiled a mix of some Amapiano and kwai-jazz tunes in my collection and uploaded them to my YouTube channel at

The mix is titled "M-Point Presents: AmaPiano vs. Kwai-Jazz Mix Session" and I hope you all enjoy the smooth and danceable rhythms of the two subgenres that fuse kwaito and contemporary jazz!
