South Africa’s Cuebur started his career as a musical child prodigy with tracks pulsating throughout local clubs and dance floors by the age of 15. He took it upon himself to bring his country a different sound by producing house and hip-hop, which contributed to him being regarded as a reputable and appreciated DJ/producer by peers and fans alike. Taken under the wing of the trusted Defected Records, Cuebur is now making noise on an international stage with releases like his recent album, For Headz Only, while strengthening his presence in his local scene. In this guest mix, he merges African-influenced organic sounds with house for a clubby world music-type vibe.

The once mysterious, now not so mysterious, Route 94 is back on that production grind with a new release on Defected Records that follows suit to its predecessor, “My Love.” Less anthemic, but equally as club ready, “Tell You Why,” features a bassline that can hold its own on the dance floor as pitched up vocals set a sultry tone for the production. With his “Fly 4 Life” EP out soon on Defected, you can be sure to find this tune alongside other Route 94 originals at the end of this month.
