The South African house star empties the contents of his psychic record bag

It has a bit of pop in it, so I like to play my edit without the chorus.

Black Motion has quickly became one of the biggest names in South Africa, and we recently collaborated on a remix for Avicii.

Out on Dixon’s Innervisions – people love its energy everywhere I play it. The strings are a tsunami. Modern and South African – I’m proud to play it.

This song has everything: the percussive groove; the hypnotic touch; the modern loopy side. A great DJ tool and a ritual in my set. A universal instinctive groove. I feel it!

Jazzy. Soul. Brass section is amazing. Vocals are fantastic. I am singing it right now. One of my dream collaborations – I hope they read this interview!

A huge hit in South Africa. Even the cows know it! This song was so big that it is one of the few international songs that influenced the birth of kwaito back in the day.

Sunset + Ibiza + Circoloco + this song = magic.

Danceable groove with a pop approach. The guitar loop is very African and addictive. The vocals are perfectly written. Women love it. Boys like to see women loving it. This has been a South African anthem from kids to radio to TV to clubs.

This has always been a very special song to me. It inspired the producer in me from the beginning. I believe it is exactly what Larry Heard wanted in the song and it inspired me to do that with all my work. It has calmness, feeling, peace and it is very majestic. Everything you want to have in a good life.
