Given that last year was such a successful year when it comes to house music, it seems like 2015 will be even better. Below is a list of artists whose albums you can expect to drop this year:
Kentphonik- Our favourite DJs Kent and Euphonik are back in studio to work on another collaboration album. The last time these worked together on a Kentphonik album, they gave us hits such as ‘Happiness’ and ‘Masingita’. It’s going to be interesting to see what they have in store for us this time around.
Bekzin Terries- Voslooorus born DJ and producer Bekzin Terris will be releasing his debut album this year. A talented deep house producer of note, Bekzin Terris sure is one of the country’s rising musical stars in house music. He has worked with the likes of Euphonik, Kent and others. It is only a matter of time we find out what he’ll be offering.
DJ Shimza- Soulistic Music’s DJ Shimza is also among the artists that will be releasing their albums this year. Although it is not certain as to when we can expect it to drop, he has revealed on social media that he is finally done with the album.
Black Coffee- This undoubtedly has to be the most anticipated house music album of 2015 with the music maestro having last released an album in 2012. This will be Black Coffee’s fifth studio album. His previous album Africa Rising became a huge success reaching double platinum status and winning Best dance album at the 2013 South African Music Awards. ‘I Will Find You’ on which he features Cara Frew is one of the jams which will feature on the upcoming album. The sound is deep with a soulful touch and it has received much appraisal from fans as well as fellow peers in the house music scene. Although the release date hasn’t been announced yet, we are certain that whatever it is that Black Coffee is brewing in the studio, fans sure will not be disappointed!
Heavy K- The Drum Boss is yet again to deliver another album for all the loyal house heads out there. Heavk K was the biggest hitmaker of 2013/2014 and he continues to give us more club banging jams. He is one young man of immeasurable talent and everything he touches turns to gold.
Zano- We are excited to mention that soulful music vocalist Zano will be releasing an album at the end of June called Colours Of My Soul. The talented vocalist released the second single from the upcoming album in early February titled ‘Oceans Apart’ on which he also features talented singer Thiwe on the vocals. There’s no denying that Zano is one of the most gifted vocalists in the country and we absolutely just can’t wait to hear what he has prepared for the masses.
Soul Candi Selektor Series (Limpopo Edition)- It is no doubt that Limpopo has produced some of the best house music producers and it continues to do so. Soul Candi will be releasing the Limpopo edition of the Selektor Series with rising star Punk Mbedzi, Chymamusique and Brazo Wa Afrika soon. Make sure you get your hands on this one!
