Deep House DJ KG Smallz has paid his dues and is without any doubt propelling himself towards cult following with the release of new material. Having earned his stripes in setting the dance floors ablaze alongside the likes of fellow internationally acclaimed artists such as Rulf Gum and Rocco, DJ KG Smallz is not only taking his masterly created tunes to dithering heights but also his brand name.
Deep House aficionados have already warmly embraced the single Give Me Some Love featuring Cape Town based vocalist Ree Morris and released late last month. Morris is best known for collaborations with Chymamusique, Da Capo and the legendary DJ Christos. However, this writer’s head is on the block for the smashing hit single Joy All Night which is set for release nationwide on all major music platforms this Friday, 12 July 2019.
“Expect to experience a lot more of this breezy piece of house music in 2019,” beamed DJ KG Smallz’s to the magic mixing in Joy All Night. Appreciatively; he acknowledged that Give Me Some Love has also catapulted him to Deep House divinity status with the bosses of an international record label having taken a bow.
“I must admit, yes it is a very special single that sways on a solid midtempo 4/4, with lush piano, an undeniably deep baseline, and disco-style strings.
“That is all before the gorgeous vocal and synth solo comes in. It is a love song in the style of classic Liquideep and it has the catchiest chorus you will likely hear all year,” enthused the Klerksdorp born DJ who has endured himself to multitudes in Kimberley, one of the heartlands of Deep House, amid many years of plying his trade in the diamond city.
DJ KG Smallz’s mastery and blend of Deep House has put him into a nesting in the international arena. He has scooped an international record deal with Germany’s Electric Friends Music embracing him.
“Give Me Some Love is licensed under House Afrika whilst Joy All Night is with Electric Friends Music who in moving forward will be working with my own stable BigWhole Records,” explained the renowned muso born as Kgotso Motloung.
Should you be finding this winter to be biting, hit the club scene or create your own party with DJ KG Smallz’s tunes. Yes indeed; best thing to do if you will be seeking joy all night and pleading to be given some love. It is all in the music as you shall testify and hail DJ KG Smallz.
