This is the first in a series of posts, commemorating the work of Sivuyile Jack. As an avid promoter and supporter of house music, he had begun to create an intensely passionate online community through his weekly ‘#B2BCharts’. Each week (sometimes twice) himself and one other super-fan would select 5 of their favourite grooves to form a 10 track selection, both introducing the community to new music and celebrating the already known.
At our core, deepstreet has always been about highlighting the culture of local house music. The big picture vision of Sivuyile and ours was very much aligned, this writer actually being the very first participant in the charts. Alongside his partner in crime Mantshini ‘Uglymann’ Kenneth we have decided to collect Sivuyile’s charts and move them out of social media, to a place where they are easily accessible and safely stored.
The below lists are from the months of April & May. Rest easy king.
On this one we have Mike Wallis from deepstreet an online magazine that is collecting, promoting & celebrating the best in South African deep house music.
