Essential I is one of the finest Deep Soulful House producers from South Africa, and he has a wealth of scintillating records in his arsenal, which have allowed him to be recognised and respected by his fellow DJs, producers and Deep House Heads across the world.
Essential I announced himself to the industry with a soulful bang that allowed him to be seen and appreciated for this incredible musical potential. Traxsource defines Essential I as “a House Music DJ/Producer from South Africa. Member of Nativeroots and Deeptone Recordings. Despite becoming a household name in his early twenties, Essential-I has always maintained a humble and down to earth approach throughout his career. One of the first youngstars to break through to international acclaim on the strength of his production alone, Essential-I has since gone on to establish his own imprint, Deeptone Recordings and take the label right to the forefront of dance music.”
Rise Up is blessed with powerful musical masterpieces that send the soul towards a musical euphoria. The album features a rich musical amalgamation of incredible instrumentation, soul-soothing vocal sounds and exquisite engineering and mastering.
