about

South African producer, KaySoul, shares a dreamy cut of deep house goodness which features the input of instrumentalists from all across the globe.

What is Blackness? EP is all about melody and groove - two things to which Johannesburg resident, KaySoul, is well accustomed. The stripped-back opener ‘That Blackness’ gets things off to a soulful start with a melody swaying gently over minimal percussion and funk-adjacent lower ends. Next up, Colombia-born, Brazil-based musician, Gustavo Martinez, steps up to offer his expertise on ‘Africanus’: a more meditative take on deep house with melancholic cries of a saxophone and maracas which lend the track a full-bodied swing. A pulsing kick drum provides the driving propulsion to ‘10 Ways’: a joyous track which drafts in French pianist, Steve Faets for melody duties. Bringing the EP to a close is the final artist to feature, fellow Johannesburg resident Kurtx, who steps in for the super cool, synth-driven ‘East Meets South’ before the hollow-sounding percussion and and looped vocals ‘Yak’ leave things on a blissful, enchanted note.

What Is Blackness? EP drops 18th March 2022 via Shall Not Fade.
