They say the good die young and that is exactly how the House music fraternity feels after hearing the news of the death of one of SA’s most talented deep house producers, DJ Duke Soul.
On Monday morning the country woke up to the sad news that the young DJ had passed on.
According to Sunday World, Duke Soul had been in and out of for a few weeks. This was after he had collapsed at O.R Tambo International Airport and later admitted to hospital on 1 April.
As a tribute to the memory of the young man, we have put together a couple of songs that have defined the fallen DJ’s respect within House music circles.
It is true that only deep house listeners will understand the void that Duke Soul has left in the industry. Let’s be comforted by that his music shall live on and he has made his impact.
To all his family, friends and fans, on behalf of the House music fraternity we send our deepest condolences.
Rest In Peace Duke Soul...deep house will never be the same.
