Your friendly neighbourhood  brand – tech-savvy Generation Z

There is a trend of artists thinking outside the box, and having the backing of established brands to do so is my favourite and hope it continues long after 2021.  Independent electronic DJ and producer Muzi is a prime example of this.  Teaming up with Jagermeister and DEAD, Muzi created a clothing range that fed into the general worker narrative of his Stimela SeGolide EP, in the lead-up to its drop.  The four-day pop-up shop in Braamfontein was a great way to support the EP’s release by creating original apparel.
