This dynamic duo is made up of producers Vertic (Khayelihle Ngcobo) and Lelzin (Mpumelelo Sithole) both of whom hail from Peitermaritzburg, South Africa.
Having formed Deep Narratives in 2016, the pair began their musical memoir through deep tech beats that over time have evolved into the electronic, Afro House sound that has taken the industry by storm.
Praised for their trippy and unusual style “Indlamu“ is a five-track EP taking listeners on a journey of sound.
Beginning with an intro that lays foundation for the EP’s style and direction before moving seamlessly into the standout tune “Ubumnandi“ – a true highlight for our young Paradise Sound System catalogue and a clear indicator of Deep Narratives’ talent – which speaks of groove in its many forms.
The third track, Emazula embodies the Zulu warrior culture found in the duo’s home province of Kwa Zulu Natal with powerful drum beats and an inherently African feel.
Next is Ebaba, a light-hearted reminder that no matter life’s challenges, one must always keep pushing which leads naturally to the fifth track, a call to prayer produced with Cbudaque_SA, aptly named, God’s Call featuring healing vocals and a spiritual sound.
Ending this fascinating body of work is the sixth track, Ubumnandi, an instrumental piece featuring P. Elle.
Already boasting massive support from fellow South African heavyweights such as Black Coffee and Culoe De Song, Deep Narrative’s latest EP is primed to land with a bang come its full release on 10 September 2021.
