A Philippi based DJ and music producer is hoping to make a big impact with his debut offering nin just over a month. Athenkosi Dlamini or Atro De Tribe as he is known in the music circles is preparing release his debut called When going too deep and tribe. His sounds take deep house lovers to the peak of deep tribal house when the likes of Dj Da Capo, Culoe Da Song and Problem Child broke in to the forefront in the late 2000s. He notes Problem Child as one of his inspiration and its evident in his infective baseline and heart strumming chords. His new offering will be released by United Kingdom based label Night Scope Recordings and will be available on web based music stores Tracksource and iTunes. At just 22, Dlamini, offers a variation of styles of deep house to the matured ears as a result of his long dedication to the game, he says. “I started Djying in 2007 when I met a friend of mine, Siphamanda Mdloyi aka DJ Supps and then we met other friends that was when I was taught to play but I only started producing music in 2012.It has been a journey that has seen me make very good friends in music such Benathi Tshaya who taught me how to compose music,” said Dlamini. The Mpumalanga born music man also barely missed out on a top 10 spot on last years edition of Sabc 1s DJying competition Ones and Twos. “It wasn’t very easy at all because you had to play your own song and mix with a compilation song that you have never heard before but out of that 40 I manage to get the Top 36 with the likes of Dj Lee,Jive,Mailo,Don Teddy,Master BlaQ,Songz and others.I also had the chance to be in Joburg and managed to get some great advice from DJs such as Mshega and Culoe Da Song. Im very happy to be making my living through music and modelling which I recently got into,” said Dlamini. He remains one of the busiest DJs in the local club scene and is hoping his EP will reach more music lovers than before.
