Johannesburg, 29th March 2019: The duo has released yet another track that sees the two taking on only the musical composition and production of Paid which features the vocals of US native and frequent Wiz Khalifa collaborator DJ Afterthought. DJ Afterthought is currently on tour in New Zealand and Australia with Lil Yachty, Troyboi and P-Money.

Locnville are taking no prisoners this year having already dropped the smash hit single ‘I Got Ya Babe’ with longtime friends and collaborators Pascal & Pearce.

One half of Locnville, Djenga states: “This track is a beauty. It actually started out as a remix of a much slower sort of Hip Hop track that Afterthought sent us. We loved the sound and wanted to take a different spin on it, the reception was so good that it’s now become the Original track which is just incredible. It’s an epic feeling and I’m super grateful.” The smooth and powerful undertones of this House inspired track are sure to set the airwaves alight and hypnotize listeners around the world for a long time to come.

Other half of Locnville, Cris Kino goes onto explain, “Paid is one of my favorite tracks of all time, there’s just such a great story behind how it all came together. Having Afterthought’s vocal over the driving beat just did something for me the first time we started working on it, and it’s developed into its own sound completely. Paid is a classic.” DJ Afterthought adds, “I wanted to get a bit out of my comfort zone and reach different levels of my vocal progression. Many revisits and tweaks occurred along the way. Linking up with Locnville really brought a new vision to life and we were able to capture lightning in a bottle”

Paid is now available on all digital streaming platforms.
