The turntable king himself, DJ KBoz seems to have a positive outlook on this year’s music trends and says that a lot of generic music will come out.
“It is sad to say that, but a lot of dumb music will definitely trend this year, but that should not mean we must be too critical about the sounds that will come out we should just have fun with it because at some point the world will want to go back and listen to some good music,” the DJ says.
The hit-maker told unWrap.online that his plan to move his recording studio out of the comfort of his own home and to commercial property was mainly because of growth. “From where I started to where I am now, I’ve qualified myself enough to establish a studio where all artists can reach us and also open myself up to the corporate world.”
Being motivated and inspired by South Africa’s timeless hit-maker DJ Maphorisa, KBoz says that it is because of him that he keeps switching between genres and always improving his sound.
“You can choose to stick to one sound, but some point you will become a relic and eventually be redundant. Maphorisa inspires me because his sound changes with the times and that’s how I want to move as a producer,” he said.
DJ Kboz says that he got his hands full with artists and that the work never stops. “To be honest, I am working with a lot of artists, but the ones who are notably under Turntable King Productions are namely, Barris who is a hip hop and reggae artist Adriana Simone. She does Kizomba and Kuduru as well as VDK,”
He says that the artists are signed on a project making basis and not necessarily on a contractual basis. “We collaborate with them so that it gives them an opportunity to grow their brands individually and makes it easier for them to work with other people, open up doors for themselves,” he concluded.
