For fans of the Foliage label, they'll recognize the cover to this one instantly which means it's a must have.

This label has seen all the big names like Atjazz, Jimpster, Rich Medina, DJ Spinna,  Glass Slipper (their new single on Colour & Pitch, review HERE) and many more.

'Don't Let Me See' is Thakzin's debut on the label with the sultry vocals of Ray T (also South African) over the deep synth bump groover so that the instrumental is just as good as the vocal version: totally mesmerising as it comes out of the darkness.

This release follows his hit last year with Themba, 'Sound Of Freedom' as 'names' of a new sound for modern Africa.

One of many DJ's that has supported the new wave of South African house over many years as its evolved is Delectabeat's Andy Garvey (see Afro*Disiac Live 12/02/23 with special guest, Gerry Hectic HERE) and he played 'Don't Let Me See' and 'Reciprocity' by Moon Rocket featuring Paula that's got a similar feel to it (from the forthcoming Foliage Sampler Vol. 1).

Expect another big year for this label as they don't seem to stop finding great new acts.

PS. For a more of a jazz take of South African music, don't miss Nostalgia 77's new album (Review HERE)
