Around late last year, rumours started circulating that Cape Town’s Number 1 House dj would be realeasing an album. This was followed by Euphonik’s nationwide announcement that he had 2 dj’s and that he was looking for 2 more dj’s. It was already clear to me that the rumours were true, that dj Loyd would be one those djs on the project. Then the big moment came, Euphonik presents Phuture dj's Loyd and G-Funk was launched. As CPTSTREETMAG’s music guru, I finally have the opportunity to review this album.
The first track I related to was Bongi Dube “Go round”, I have to say it was better then the original song, its one of those remix you hope will hold it down this festive. If you remember Kentphonik when they remixed “Where I wana be” by Mina Nawe and the remix was more popular then the original the same applies here, Phuture djs brought new life to the track.
In the eleven track house compilation my favourite is “Take your time” a very motivational song for all the hustlers out there “don't waste time thinking about where you went wrong and just decide on what you want and hold on”.
The album is well balanced even with tracks like We No Speak Americano, My Feeling For You and Stereo Love which are big among the white listeners but also crossing race to be club anthems among the black people as well. As they say music is universal.
Infinite Boys have outdone themselves on this project, check out their song called “Zulu Tribe” which is also and is called “Hi Nyikeni” on Fistaz Mixwell’s compilation. The Phuture DJs remix is better, its the type of track you want to hear being mixed by a dj that has a PHD in killing a crowd on the main set. Festive season is coming and I foresee a street debate among people as in who has the better version of this track.
As I said each and every song in this album was carefully chosen, the compilation is beautiful. The only disappointment is I would have liked to see at least one track being produced by the duo. I will be hoping that they do grace us with a follow up album and bring us at least 2 tracks of their own.
I give this album 4 out 5, that is how good it is, Capetonians and South Africans don't be late in catching the Phuture fever, bump this album in your car before the festive season.
