Deep House Destinations
House music is everywhere in South Africa from the streets to broadcast TV stations and the country as a whole has become the hotbed of talent and sounds for years now. The vibrant electronic music scene in Johannesburg - South Africa's biggest city - has helped give rise to internationally lauded acts such as Black Coffee, Jazzuelle, Kid Fonque, House Afrika legend Vinny Da Vinci, DJ Christos and so many more. In Johannesburg, the 4/4 pulse of house music has become the soundtrack of everyday life.
Johannesburg Record Labels
Johannesburg’s record label community might not be as large as some of the other globally influential cities, such as London, Berlin, NYC and the likes, but what it lacks in quantity it more than makes up for in quality. Vinny Da Vinci’s House Afrika Records is something of a global institution, introducing so many to a diverse range of South African producers and emerging musical genres like Amapaino. Kid Fonque and Jullian Gomes’ Stay True Sounds is another incredibly strong label right now, with weekly releases from the finest SA producers. And Just Move Records continues to develop a seriously strong catalogue with a real attitude.
