PREMIERE: OFS collective founder, Cephas, fuses Durban Kwaito & Future Beats on his latest release

2017 has been a rather interesting year for the beats scene in South Africa. A lot of producers bravely took to the internet streets to share their creativity. The amazing thing about the rise of producers was that with everything they worked on and shared, they included a part of themselves in it. From sampling authentically South African music to create modern soundscapes fit to entertain young audiences to being unapologetically South African in how they carry themselves and how they interact with the world.

Joburg-native, Cephas, forms part of the new crop of talented producers that are taking South African sounds to the word. Cephas’ Sukwe Series, a series where he released future beats tracks with South African influences, kicked off a few months ago and he has not stopped since. In this series, he has tested his creativity and experimented with different types of sounds to create something unique for beats lovers.
