Review: Soul Candi Presents Producer Series Volume 1
Soul Candi is famous for housing some of the best producers on the South African House Music scene. One just has to think Cuebur to identify with the vision that the stable has. The stable has released a double disc album featuring PM Project and Jus Nativ who each have a disc included. That’s double the house fever, double the excitement.
PM Project hail from the picturesque Free State province. Interestingly, PM stands Positive Minds which came from their determination to have a “positive mindset” since they grew up in a crime-ridden suburb. Categorically they fit the traditional mould of Afro-House, as their music consists of soulful compositions that they combine with vocal house as well. Their debut disc is replete with their own remixes and productions. Collaborations with other local artists like AndyBoi, Cuebur’s personal friend and Keiko Yoshimura. Tracks to look out for on the album include Lost it All and Life as It Is, a collaboration with Lady X.

Jus Nativ is a mastermind producer resident at Soul Candi Records. He produced the Producer Series version which so far in South Africa has reached number 5 on the Musica Local Charts. His style is traditional house beats that include a vibey drum-line, touch of piano and alluring vocals. A trained pianist, he fuses his traditional piano background with house beats to create beautiful house music tunes. Crazy Love which features Thandi Draai is one of these tracks. Other notable tracks on the album include Touch Your Soul, Final Lie and Journey to the Stars. All in all it’s a great album for any collector to have.
