‘Ta – Ice – My Tutorials Part 4’ drops worldwide on all digital stores!!!

Ta-Ice – My Tutorials Part 4

There are so many copycats & impersonators in any scene, The South African House scene is no different with so many producer’s sounding the same and nothing unique coming out the speakers.
It takes an artist like Ta-Ice to stand up and make music that sounds so
original. Morphing afro house into tech and beyond, coming up with
something that is truly his own. After he released his massive ‘Four Fathers’ anthem Stay True Sounds payed attention and had him remix Kid Fonque’s Bossa Over? which quickly became a favorite for DJ’s like Joris Voorn, Vinny Da Vinci & Jullian Gomes. Ta Ice started sending the label his new works and we couldn’t say no. Unique and fresh to a South African house scene, these tech house cuts are the start to a new sound that South Africa is surely in need of.

Tracklist:

1. Ta-Ice – Karaoke
2. Ta-Ice & Myazisto – The Goodies

Stay True Sounds Label Party Hits Pretoria

Stay True Sounds brings its sounds to Amaros Pretoria.


Jay Em Drop ‘The September BluePrint’ EP

Jay Em – The September Blueprint
Jay Em is a duo formed by two brothers, Ruwayne(18) and Waven Sebia(21) both based in the sunny seaside town Port Elizabeth in South Africa. Jay Em are self taught producers and started making beats at the young age of 12 & 14. The brothers lost a close friend Four7 who produced the South Africa smash hit J’adore. The passing of such a close friend made them want to produce more and make impact on the world around them. I am pretty certain this 4 track EP will make the impact they have been longing for sounding like South Africa’s answer to Kaytranda.
Stay True Sounds are very proud to showcase Jay Em and know the music will truly speak for itself.
Jay Em have landed!
