The underground Deep House scene in South Africa has never been in a state that it is right now, and at the top of its forwarding movement is Jazzuelle, known to be one of the best Deep House producers in South Africa.
The highly anticipated album was available on all digital music outlets on Friday 26th June, with 12 original music tracks produced and composed by Jazzuelle himself, and was packed with only the Top features on the Deep House scene by artists and producers such as; KVRVBO, Simeon, Chronical Deep, Tebza De Soul, Dwson, Simeon, Jas Artchild, Zito Mowa, and Sand Isle.
Its been a labour of love producing with the best in the SA underground scene with collaborations with Dwson, Chronical Deep, Kvrvbo and more. Said Jazzuelle.
The album was initially teased with the release of its first single “Bees Are Left Handed” featuring Zito Mowa and it had an excellent reception and fans couldn’t have been more excited for the coming of the full project. “Sapphire” featuring Tebza De Soul was the second single. Finally, a week before the official release of the album “Rogue” the song “Genius Frequency” featuring Jas Artchild was released as the third single of the project.
The album “Rogue” is an instant classic, overpowered, and technically sounded Deep House project, and the entire Deep House scene in Africa couldn’t be happier and prouder of this project.
As we said, “Rogue” came at the right moment for the underground deep house scene in South Africa, as we see a shift in the consumption and demand of Deep House sounds and those are related to the fact of the increase in the quality of the sound and the presence of new and skilled producers in the country, and at the forefront of changes in this movement is Stay True Sounds Recordings, an independent music label founded by Kind Fonque that is taking South African Deep House music to another level.
Stay True Sounds is responsible for best and latest deep house hit releases of Kat La Kat “Broken Secrets EP”, China Charmeleon “Colours” album, KVRVBO “Dublin Express EP”, Myazisto, Mpeshnyk “Indigenous EP”, Kid Fonque, Jonny Miller, others more and finally with Jazzuelle “Rogue” Album.
“Rogue” should be and is the album to get and jam at the moment, despite being released on the same day with one of the most notable music releases in South Africa history, Kabza de Small’s album “I Am The King of Amapiano”. But that doesn’t take away from the amazingness, quality and how good “Rogue” is, as the reviews so far are overly positive and have received massive support from legendaries and top house and deep house producers around the world such as Fred Everything, Ralf Gum, Jazzanova, Charles Webster, Fish Go Deep, Jullian Gomes, and Stay True Sounds boss, Kid Fonque.
Here are some of the reactions around the web about Jazzuelle new album.
