Euphoria / KVRVBO

KVRVBO - Euphoria

Stay True Sounds

"Euphoria" is the debut full length release from KVRVBO (pronounced Karabo). KVRVBO is one of a number of talented DJ/Producers to emerge from the meteoric house music scene in South Africa. With two critically acclaimed EPs under his belt under the impressive label Stay True Sounds, this record is an ode to classic house and he represents himself very well here. "Conspiracy" is a perfect example of that. A traditional four to the floor banger with warm emotive synth lines juxtaposed against a pulsating rhythm. "O Flopo" is a mid-tempo Afro house tune armed with a gentle thumping bass groove. It's also one of the few vocal tracks here and features Okay GOD. KVRVBO slows down the pace with "Call For Truth". A meditative tune filled with potent poetic words of wisdom on top of a steady hypnotic beat. KVRVBO taps into his musical roots to create a deep house gem with his signature sound combined with classic deep house rhythms. A triumphant release that should put him all over the map.
