When I came to South Africa for the first time, the only thing I knew about House music was that it had something to do with David Guetta. I had no clue whatsoever of the diversity and richness of a genre that has since then become one of my favorites. Being in South Africa has converted me into a die-hard House fan - which can be explained by the fact that House music is not just any genre here, but the pinnacle of music. It has major airplay on all national and local radio stations and is an essential part of day-to-day life: one can hear it playing in a supermarket while shopping for groceries, from the blasting speakers of a passing taxi or from the car wash on the corner. House Music IS South Africa.

Therefore it comes as no surprise that under the constant influence of Afro, Tribal, Deep, Soulful, Bacardi, Gqom or Kwaito I had to dedicate my new mixtape for to the beauty of South African House Music. There is also a hidden praise poem in the playlist:)
