Hailing from a small township East of Johannesburg is KVRVBO, a DJ and producer infatuated with deep house music. Surrounded by local selectors, he quickly developed a taste for the nostalgic sounds of classic house and early new school interpretations. Inevitably, the moment he delved into production himself, he began to craft his own unique take on the sounds he’d been fed on.
With two EPs already under his belt, he returns to a label championing true, evocative music in South Africa’s flourishing scene, Stay True Sounds, for his debut album, Euphoria. On our pick, ‘Celestial Dreams’, KVRVBO traverses the deep South African house and vintage sounds he fell in love with, weaving together luxurious chords and sensuous vocals with a rhythmic bassline and heavy claps that pack a punch.
Euphoria is out now on Stay True Sounds.
