Vinny Da Vinci

Vinny Da Vinci

Real Name:
Vincent Motshegoa
Vinny has come a long way from playing at school functions in Pretoria: today he holds the reputation as one of South Africa's leading house masters. His friendship with DJ Christos has seen them release three albums under the DJ's @ Work collaboration to date, and his African-ism series under the House Afrika Records label (of which he is co-owner) has dominated the deep-house scene, "pioneering a new wave of minimal, bassline-heavy, Afro-flavoured rhythms that have bewitched dance floors".

I agree with the reviewer: Vinny is one of the best South African DJ's, and he has kept the flag flying throughout the years with top notch track selection, mixing, and making music into more than just music, if that makes sense.

Thing with a DHS album is: even if it isn't the best, it's still really good - he has a consistency about him that hasn't changed, which is refreshing, and nice. Deep House Sounds 4 has to be one of, if not, my all time favourite albums.

I only wish House Afrika would be more aggressive in keeping their releases: like the reviewer below me, it is very sad that they don't still have the earlier albums for sale anywhere, and House Afrika themselves don't seem to offer any means of purchasing their own albums from their website.

Since the inception of house music,legendary vinny has always kept his style of sweet deep house music to date and he is a well known figure when it comes to deep house and his compilation mixed discs.for me ever since i started listening to house house afrika and what's phatpussy cat will always be my favourite to come out of SA,especially vol 1 & deep house sounds vol 1&2 it's a pity that most of these releases are no longer available on the shelves but would like appeal to the guys to possibly bring the cd's back in our stores..
