Dwson, Determined To Define The House Music Genre
Written by Bridgette Makhela on 5th Sep 2021
Cape Town-based House DJ and Producer Dwson (pronounced Daw-son), is one of the most sought- after electronic artists in South Africa.
Effortlessly breathing new life into the local deep house scene with his dubbed-out sound, Dwson sets a clear vision, with diverse and refreshingly distinct ways that refuse to be tied to one style of House music.
He has taken the stage at major events such as Cape Town Electronic Music Festivals, Oppikoppi, Red Bull Music Academy, ULTRA, Rocking the Daisies, Synergy and Design Indaba to name a few.
His ‘Glimpses of You’ EP boasts three stunning vocal features in folk favourite Dumama, guitar-wielding Roxy Caroline and his ever present muse, Sio, as well as one instrumental track, reminding all who listen that his slick, clean productions are unlike anything we have previously heard.
Dwson has also spread his wings abroad with a special trip to Berlin, another of the globe’s House Music capitals, to release ‘Ethyl’ at Hallo Montag — followed by an EP titled ‘Bermuda’ less than a month later with Jimpster’s UK label, Freerange Records.
Dwson is a clear favourite for any House music lover looking for an invigorating approach to a wide-reaching genre.
With a clear vision, a diverse yet refreshingly distinct sound, he refuses to be tied to one style of house. This saw him playing well-respected, major events and festivals such as Oppikoppi, Cape Town Electronic Music Festival, Rocking the Daisies, Synergy and Redbull Music Festival Johannesburg.
Listen to Dwson’s music on The Global Experience hosted by Just Mo every Sunday, 2PM-6PM.
