Artist: Alton Miller Feat. Thato
Title: Waiting For You
Remixes: Djeff Afrozila
Label: King of Groove Records
Genre: Afro/Soulful House
DJ/Producer Alton Miller makes a fine debut on King of Groove Records with an exquisitely percussively crafted ‘Waiting for You’ featuring Thato. The track is a showcase of Miller’s rhythmically enticing vibe he’s renowned for behind the decks and when he emerges from the studio.
The percussive-fuelled beat sets Thato quite nicely up and accentuates her silky smooth voice giving the track an idyllic contrast. The melodic textures underpin an extensive drum patterns as if it were home brewed for the pallets of the House heads ‘Mzansi’ side (South Africa).
Djeff Afrozila remix on the other hand also maintains the percussive groove but takes a somewhat Afro Deep sensory trip, with Thato’s vocals maintaining an overall soulful aura.
It’s a nicely packaged EP and will definitely be grooving to Djeff Afrozila’s remix all summer long under the bright blue African skies.
