Apple Musictoday announced prolific house producer and DJ, Citizen Deep (real name Tivani Ian Junior Mkhombo) as the next Isgubhu cover star.
“What an honour to be able to share some of my favourite tracks with you. Thank you Apple Music! My Isgubhu playlist on Apple Music is filled with various young South African producers. Exploring the playlist you will definitely connect and understand the different types of ‘Sgubhu we have to offer. What a vast variety of dance music we have as a nation!”
he tells Apple Music.
The release of the Soweto-born DJ’s highly-anticipated debut album ARCADE (2022), available to stream on Apple Music in Spatial Audio, is the result of the down time afforded to him by South Africa’s initial lockdown at the beginning of 2020. With no pressure on him to perform, Citizen dug deep and as a result found his Afrotech signature sound on ARCADE (an acronym for A Rare Collection of Art Designed to Entertain), spearheaded by the hit single “Ilizwi” feat. Bukeka.
To celebrate his feature Citizen Deep has also created exclusive Isgubhu playlist that showcases South Africa’s next generation of producers and DJ.
