It is that time of the year again whereby we just have to relax and enjoy what the festive season brings upon us. When it comes to music, December never disappoints as most DJs and producers come out armed in full force with massive hits that will only leave us house music fans in a frenzy. Below we have compiled some of the hottest house tunes we are most certain you’ll be rocking to this summer!
Rabs Vhafuwi- Count your blessings
Rabs Vhafuwi is definitely one of South Africa’s finest house producers and his impeccable talent cannot go unnoticed. ‘Count your blessings’ has became one of those songs we just can’t get enough of here at The Set. There’s just a certain level of hypnotizing trajectory about this song that just makes you get lost in a world where everything is perfect. This festive season, sit down and enjoy the deep soothing African sounds of Rabs Vhafuwi.
Da Capo- Forever
Da Capo is one of the most gifted house producers in the country and his talent is undeniably impressive! The Limpopo-born DJ is back at it again and this time he hasn’t only given us a hot tune but a whole album to appreciate. ‘Forever’ is his latest single taken from the new album on which he features Apple Gule, and the song has been taking radio waves by storm.
DJ Fisherman & DJ SK ft Naak Musiq, Tira, Danger and Dream Team- Call Out
Durban has done it again! This time DJ Fisherman and DJ SK are coming with a club banger called ‘Call Out’ on which they feature a number of fellow Durbanites. ‘Call Out’ just hooks you from the onset with the rhythmic drum beats. This jam has been rocking local clubs and it has also hit radio waves in such a way that some have declared that when we crossover to 2015, we’ll be singing tune to this one.
DJ Sbu ft Zahara- Indlela’ Yam
They gave us ‘Lengoma’ a couple of years ago and now they have blessed us with a brand new one called ‘Indlela’ Yam’. The song has sound clips of the first cries of DJ Sbu’s baby daughter when she was born. There’s no denying that these two are a formidable force when it comes to music.
Black Motion ft Xoli M- Rainbow
We’d be committing a very huge offence if we would compile this list without mentioning the talented house duo Black Motion and their most popular song from their new album Fortune Teller. From the clubs to the taverns, from the Sandton to Kasi streets, every house music fan will know that ‘Rainbow’ has rocked every corner of South Africa in a massive way. This song which features the talented Xoli M on the vocals has substantiated Black Motion as a force to be reckoned with in the house music industry. Get ready to continue to rock to this one during the festive season!
