OU aka Sonke Mkhwanazi is a self-taught producer/DJ from the Empangeni region of KwaZulu-Natal, and ’The Man EP’ is his solo debut for House Afrika following releases on the UK’s Atal Music and his contribution to ‘House Afrika Sessions 8’, the amazingly-received “Laser Clutch”.
With a sound that’s mysterious and unplaceable, he’s already on the radar of legends like Kerri Chandler, who spun him out in Ibiza, and these three tracks will gain him a lot of new fans.
Atop whip-smart drums, OU layers echoes of jazz, spooky synths and moody bass. It’s Afro-house, but there are exotic Eastern melodies and a mercurial atmosphere that’s reminiscent of Enoo Napa, Dixon and Rocco.
