Music producer-cum-promoter, Mack ‘Mac Dee’ Lentwenyane, is back with a third Face to Face album that is likely to place him among the best of Afro-Disco producers.

Roping in talented keyboardist, Tando Zinto, has given the album a good flavour and rhythm instrumentally, while vocalists Thabile Mazolwana, Ludwe Maki and Mpendulo Dandile simply make it a must buy for any disco follower. The album, Amaqawe (Our Heroes), is a follow-up to Face to Face’s two earlier releases, My Hero and Ingwe Ne Ngonyama (Tiger and Lion) in which the late Don B (Donald Botshelo) was the most prominent vocalist in the recording.

The track Ability In Disability is still much celebrated in disco circles, four years after its release. My Hero was a tribute to the founding member and lead vocalist of Matshikos, Penwell Kunene, who died in May 2009. Amaqawe, according to the producer, is a celebration of departed music icons such Brenda Fassie, Lucky Dube Botshelo and Kunene. “There are some who are still alive and they have inspired me musically and through this production I also wanted to salute them,” Mac Dee said. There is an obvious growth and maturity in the music compared to earlier recordings and Mac Dee is optimistic it will convince those who doubted his ability to start rallying behind his work.
