Melbourne Deepcast asked Gabrielle Kwarteng a couple of questions in an insight-filled interview, to go along with this extremely danceable mix.
I recently discovered Tanya St Val, a zouk artist from Guadeloupe who I’ve had on repeat throughout quarantine. Her incredible voice and melodic beats instantly place me in the lightest mood whenever I listen to her tracks. I’ve also been jamming to a ton of 90s South African artists, and have two that are on heavy rotation: Doctor House and Dennis Mpale. Doctor House’s sole LP ‘Mix To Groove’ is an amazing dance record that captures a wonderful blend of kwaito as well as American house influences, as heard on Show Me Luv — which samples Robin S’s 1990 classic Show Me Love. Dennis Mpale’s ‘Paying My Bills’ album has a really unique blend of jazz and kwaito that I find really fresh.
