Listen to Kususa’s Remix of “Feel It Now” by Cornelius SA featuring Jackie Queens
Hot Pick is a multi-layered music series that aims to highlighting the hottest dance records, music videos, and podcasts fashioned by lesser known – and/or somewhat established – music producers, recording artists and emerging remixers currently based in the African continent.
With that in mind, South African afro house producer, Cornelius SA’s “Feel It Now” production featuring singer, songwriter Jackie Queens is our top selection for this week.
It is particularly the blazing hot remix by Durban-based afro house music duo, deejays and remixers, Kusasa that made its way into our books as a scorching hot favourite.
Nevertheless, we had a brief conversation with Kususa (comprised of producers, Kunzima and Samurai Yasusa) about the fascinating story behind the record. You can check out the short interview below and/or listen to a sneaky preview of the song further down below.
How would you describe this song to an unfamiliar ear?
We like to perceive our sound as futuristic, electronic afro house music, so to someone who hasn’t heard this tune: they should picture a hypnotic Jackie Queens vocal over that.

What is the inspiration behind the record?
Our brother, Cornelius personally requested that we remix the song, and because we truly love the original version, we agreed to see how it could sound “our” way. We then played around with the vocals during one of our studio sessions and loved the end product.
How do you hope the listening public will receive the production?
The public is currently opening up to it. It was only released on Traxsource on the 20th of April, 2018 and has climbed to the 15th spot on the Traxsource Afro House Top 100 chart so far.
The track is set to be available on all your other favourite digital music stores on the 5th of May 2018. That said, we’re hoping that the general population who use these stores will support.
