Darque Presents “Raw Earth Elements”
Darque – Raw Earth Elements
Polokwane has been brewing for decades with a throng of talent, capacitated by the willingness to spread ones wings across the southern hemisphere. The dream of standing upon the shoulders of giants with revere, to become a reputable artist and a legend, is one taken on by the gutful.
Molapo “Darque” Malatji at now 21 years old has begun his journey to greatness from the age of 16 as a budding producer and DJ. The love of music comes relative to anyone who is surrounded by quality music, which was awe inspired by locals, when he began playing music for those who required enlightenment.
For a hard-pressed 5 years he put his ear on the ground for only the best music, ranging from jazz to international deep house music. Forging his technical and audio proficiency the old fashioned way, by playing almost every weekend and producing music to satiate his appetite as well as for ground breakers like Jaguarpaw, Demor and Dj Terrence, he’s now ready for the world.
As alias Darque In Your City, he creates magic beats and exploits his talents at Deepforest SA as head A&R. He has produced a working rapport with the likes of Andy Compton, Kaylow, Kojo Akusa, Da Capo, Hennings Project, Reelsoul, Black Coffee and the myth defiant Robert Owens.
His music has busked major compilations such as Music Box 6 by DJ Terrence, Deepforest Sessions 1 by Jaguarpaw, House Blendz by Dj Malankane and Jungle Fever Vol 1 by Wishingsoul. Now this is his long awaited album REE’s that features artists like Kaylow, Robert Owens, Sun Singleton, Black Coffee, Darryl D’Bonneau and Paul Randolph.
Darque is officially In Your City, with no less than Rare Earth Elements. Below are the featured tracks:
