‘Fresh’ is the tenth song housed under Diamond Platnumz’s extended play ‘First Of All’ and it features Focalistic, Costa Titch and Pabi Cooper.
Succeeding his three highly acclaimed albums, Tanzanian artist Diamond Platnumz’s debut extended play First Of All blends a variety of sounds into a dosage of smooth melodies. “I attempted to provide the people of the world different types of music.” , “When the world began to open up, I traveled to several nations and began recording myself.”, he said speaking to Apple Music.
A variety of cross-continental rhythms merge over an entertaining 10 songs covering bongo flava, Afrobeats, soukous, amapiano, and zouk, with notable cameos by Focalistic, Pabi Cooper, Zuchu, Mbosso, Jaywillz, and Adekunle Gold.
Speaking extensively on Fresh, he said;
“When I was finalising my album I said, ‘I think I need to put one ‘piano song on because it’s been a while since I dropped ‘Iyo’ with Ntosh, Mapara A Jazz and Foca’. When a new sound comes, you need to know how to play with it. Different people from different countries started to spice it up, so my producers tried to play with logdrums on some of these songs. You can still feel that there’s Afrobeats or bongo flava, so it gives you all the waves. We all have a duty to push the sound, make sure it keeps growing and release lots of sounds from Africa. I think amapiano is good when you have different types of people on it. It’s a get-together kind of sound: something that makes people feel fresh. You can’t mention amapiano without mentioning Focalistic, and I wanted to do it with him again. Costa is very talented and he killed it!. I felt like we needed a lady on here and we put Pabi’s voice on it and I loved it.”
