We’ve got new music from avante-garde South African producer Da Capo who releases his ‘Bakone’ EP on Friday. We premiere the title track, which pays homage to his roots, infusing afrobeat traditions with house music power to create a carefully crafted piece of funk focussed club music.

We feature music from Da Capo – a trailblazing name in the afro-house music genre, hailing from Seshego, Limpopo South Africa, who has built up a solid repertoire across dancefloors across the globe through his production prowess. The multi-award-winning DJ and producer continually pushes the boundaries of the genre with his distinctive and captivating sense of groove, mesmerizing melodies, and ability to breathe new life into songs through his remixes, which have garnered him many accolades.

We premiere “Bakone,” which means “People from the North” in Sepedi (Northern Sotho), Da Capo’s latest work pays homage to his roots. This highly anticipated EP serves as a preview to his upcoming full album, which is set to be released in late 2023. With a focus on the future of Afrotech, Bakone exudes power and is crafted for club enthusiasts.

The track is a deep and heaving take on classic Afro-beat and Sub-Saharan drumming as Da Capo mutates the sounds of his home into an introspective piece of dancefloor heaven. The South African producer tips his hat to both the sound of his culture and the rich history it embodies while also carving out a new and bold sound that expresses a new generation of South African dancers.
