For its second album, the South-African rave-rap group leaves Jimmy Iovine’s Interscope and goes self-produced, finding its very own label Zef Recordz. In Ten$ion the groups elaborates and refines its quintessential formula of high-energy banger- beats, Yo-Landi’s haunting vocals and a lot of explosive boasting, and at the same time explores new territories in trendier genres. The strategy is confusing, and the lack of a more experienced figure at the steering wheel shapes the album. Nonetheless, Ten$ion’s deeper value is to be found it its over the top ride-or-die-ness: if some tracks are hit or miss, the work’s gritty attitude is utterly untarnished, in all its unapologetic naiveté.
