Guest Feature - Clint October - 01

Our first guest for the Essential 5 series is Clint October, a Cape Town based artist with a love for all things house music. He balances his time between DJing, producing and running his own record label Deep Society Music, which has been making a big push this year with releases from himself, T.I.B and most recently Kananelo Matlolane.

He selected 5 grooves for us which he fondly remembers impacting him in a big way, influencing the way he plays and showcasing his personal tastes. Featuring records by Leighton Moody AKA Soulsideup, Jullian Gomes, Abstract Truth, Miguel Campbell and Monique Bingham it’s clear that Clint has a deep passion for house music with soul.
