A year after Ballantine’s and Boiler Room made the trip to Johannesburg, the Stay True Journey series event touched down in Cape Town for a special night in the Langa township. Combining internationally known DJs with South Africa’s homegrown heroes, the line-up stayed true to the territory's undying love for all things house.
The co-founders of Stay True Sounds, Kid Fonque and Jullian Gomes, were just one of the jewels in the party's South African crown. Coming on strong with a bubbling back-to-back set lavished with swathes of deep-reaching pads, tribal percussion, local vocals and sublime synths, the pair didn’t cut any corners when it came to giving the Langa crowd a good time.
Finishing up with an edit of Kid Fonque’s track with Okmalumkoolkat, Usangikhumbula, the pair recieved a rapturous outro before passing controls to New York deep house don, Fred P. You can watch all of their set below, courtesy of Boiler Room and Ballantine's.
