60 Hertz Project was formed mid June 2009 in Pretoria and is a live performing group fusing musicians and producers. It was initiated by the young producer and DJ talented BlackJean. He was joined by the likeminded Deeptwelve and MarvinK, who inspired to collaborate with pianist SDK, bass-player Kmor, guitarist Tap plus percussionist and vocalist Cromy. Conjoined they deliver an outstanding performance combining live played instrumentation and electronic beats which brings jazz to the house club and house to the jazz bar. GOGO Music now releases with "Capricorn" their first ever record crowing with remixes by Ralf GUM, QB Smith and Essential I.
Essential I established himself in South Africa alongside regular production partner Mindlo for some time. His signature work includes remixes for the likes of Black Coffee and Zakes Bantwini who asked him to rework their smash "Juju". His remix of "Capricorn" slipped into the bag tastemakers like Rocco who ever since can not stop playing it. In their motherland the mix already is a true anthem mere by the massive support from the few lucky ones like DJ Christos or Vinny Da Vinci who got the track.
Ralf GUM could not only resist signing the "Capricorn" for his GOGO Music label, but lent as well his protruding talent for a remix. Omitting the original harmonies and sparingly adding fresh deep chords in addition to his a fierce percussive drum track this remix aims straight to the floor and takes the Soli to a whole other sphere.
QB Smith, formerly known under another pseudonym released on labels like Soul Heaven, but lately decided to make a change push-push with the start of his own label which he started with the critical acclaimed "Selfish Skies" release earlier this year. His interpretation takes the original harmony progression and takes it further. Crowned with a new recorded vocal courtesy of Zara McFarlane and great piano work out, his mix is a highly appreciated artistic addition to the release, which is completed by Essential I's Deeper Club Mix and 60 Hertz Project's Main Mix.
GOGO Music always kept an eye on and 2 ears open for new talent and thus has discovered and introduced many new artists to the scene, some of them now on top of their game. With the talent of "60 Hertz Project" and the superb variety of coruscant remixes included there is no reason why this can't happen once more.
