In a bid that has lasted many years, South Africa is yet to see copious amounts of success in the deep house scene. In a land where the genre thrives, locals largely fail to impress and continue to repeatedly import failed in their own country international-not-headliners like German Lars Behrenroth who is monstrously famous in places like Gugulethu and Amanzimtoti for recording a radio show in his bedroom cupboard.
Noteworthy local exceptions include artists like Black Coffee, who made international success after including two different types of sounds in his music instead of the usual one repeating beat which is the local norm. Other local deep house producers are currently unsuccessful in replicating Black Coffee’s success, some of who were spotted scuba diving off the coast of Durban and were last reported heading deeper out to sea, with no sign of any treacherously deep underwater settlement yet whilst hunting for “Deep House”.
Seeing a gap in the market, a local DJ, Kyle Watson attempted to try his hand at deep house production where so many full time producers before him had failed and instantly capitalised on success. He was alleged as saying that after 10 years of playing other people’s music and pretending it was his own that it couldn’t be too difficult to make a deep house track, and all it took were a few electro beats slowed down with the pitch controller on his CDJ and vocals that said more than 3 words. He is currently on his way to DJ in Ibiza with Black Coffee and Paris Hilton.
