On Saturday 13 December at Motswako Lounge, a new battle will be fought: for the expression of original and exceptional afro-house. “Places we go to are too afraid to play quality music we need, yes that expensive type of music.. that music you don't hear at our regular clubs nor radio stations.. yes, we’re talking ‘rehab music’.. we at House Rehab Sessions have compiled a beautiful line-up of musical doctors”.
2Lani The Warrior is headlining this event. He is famed for his trademark ‘sweet’ house sound and a flawless technical mixing. His First Class compilations have become known for their deep uplifting grooves and First Class House Volume 2 completely selling out during the first day of its release. As the label CEO of Do It Now Records, he has made it a proirity to be true to the artist and ensure their artistry is not interfered with by commercial demands.
“South Africans are still only gaining an understanding of the deep house genre. I think I may have influenced the SA music scene by being true to my own brand of music. The genre is still classed as underground music at the moment but like everything, it will take a bit of time but will inevitably blow up.”
