Trying to compile all of the best South African house music of 2019 would be a near impossible task. The sheer quality of releases from local labels, both established and up & coming, has gifted dancers with a multitude to choose from as they look back on the year.

Rather than attempt to do this, we thought better to round the year off with a mix featuring some of our favourite current local grooves. Compiled by our head honcho MikeWallis, our first ever Locals Only mix features what are his favourites both for home listening and playing out.

Some unreleased music from Just Move Records & Rick Koen open the listing, followed by some gems from Blaqkongo, Sculptured Music, FKA Mash & Dwson. More dancefloor orientated tunes come from Jazzuelle, Jullian Gomes / Atjazz, Jimpster & Oscar Mbo.

Stream the mix below, and get the full tracklist underneath it.

deepstreet wishes all our readers a safe festive & a blessed 2020.
