The Blaq Sons are four South African university students whose passion for deep house music shines in this four-track collection of mid-tempo gems. The release begins with the title track, ‘Ching Chong Cha’ – an R&B-laced number, peppered with organic percussion and topped-off with the silky male vocal stylings of Blaq Sons member Tahir Jones. ‘Ohn’enon’ features playful analogue keys that meld into a stabby sub bass, giving it an eclectic afro sound. ‘Spoonky Feathers’ has a traditional deep house drive lead by the warm funked-out bassline and bubbling synth layers that build to a euphoric crescendo. ‘Transitions’ is a chilled outro to the release featuring melancholy chord progressions, swingy percussion and an open-air sound.
About The Blaq Sons:
The Blaq Sons is made up of four South African university students based out of Cape Town. Their journey began in 2012 ¬– when their mutual love for deep house music prompted a collaboration that has morphed into multiple releases and gigs throughout South Africa. They have collaborated with soulful house superstar Jaidene Veda and shared the decks with Jullian Gomes. The future looks promising for these young talents.
