Award-winning house music duo Black Motion has signed a global licensing deal with House Afrika Records.
The record label confirmed the news on social media this afternoon, with the release of Black Motion’s fourth studio album, Ya Badimo, expected to be coming out this October.
Home to house music legends such as Vinny Da Vinci, DJ Christos, Tim White and Ralf Gum just to mention a few, House Afrika Records has been at the forefront of the South African dance music scene for two decades. With a rich influence in cementing house music culture, it has done so both locally and internationally.
Black Motion’s previous album Fortune Teller, which was released in 2014 under renowned South African recording label Kalawa Jazmee, received great reviews from house music fans and peers in the music industry alike (read our review of it here). Tracks such as ‘It’s You,’ ‘Fortune Teller,’ ‘Rainbow’ and ‘Another Man’ were just some of the fan favourites. We certainly can’t wait to hear what Black Motion has in store for music lovers this time around.
