French house music DJ and producer Rocco is bridging the gap between Europe, South Africa and the US on his new House Afrika album, ‘The Bridge’.
The album features trademark Rocco tunage graced by some of the planet’s greatest vocalists, including the US’s amazing Byron Stingily and Kafele, South Africa’s Ziyon (from Liquideep) and Khensy, and France’s Akram Sedkaoui, plus many more. Its beats are deep and sweet and equally at home on the floor as they are in the headphones.
Rocco says he is blessed to have a living legend in Byron Stingily (the most famous falsetto in house music and a former lead singer of Ten City) on his album. « It was an honour working with him », Rocco says of their hook-up on the graceful ‘Love Me Back’.
Also featured on the album are an array of collaborators Rocco refers to as ‘golden’, including Francois Aymonier, Alex Finkin, Anthony Mayzil, Sebastien Grand, Torre Bros, El and Kaylow.
As a gift to his fans, Rocco has revisited and reworked the massive ‘Memories’, a South African anthem that was originally created in collaboration with Marcel Schooler (doing spoken word) in 2003.
Rocco says he has good relationships with artists in the US, SA and Europe, and this album is a way of bridging the gap between these three territories, all epicentres of modern dance music. He proudly calls the set – unsurprisingly given the name- « a uniting album ».
