Nitefreak brings a refreshing approach to Afro House through a New York based label Deep Root Tribe, Nitefreak is at the forefront of the Progressive Afro House genre. Falling is the title of his latest beat banging single and begins with a classic, simple percussive groove. Gradually, more percussive elements join in and are accompanied by the melodic aroma that falls into place. The dark and moody lyrics set the tone of uncertainty regarding love and where developing feelings may take oneself. As the record progresses, the brisk and edgy temperatures become more prevalent. Everything comes to a ghostly halt right before the climactic moments of when the listener is propelled on a journey of electric solidarity. This is all complemented by the sultry vocals of Mikaela Stenmo which in my opinion “completes this Afro-Tech banger.”
Nitefreak’s music journey started in 2009, he is a self-taught dj and music producer. Picking up a few tricks and techniques from fellow producers. He started out as an all-round producer or beatmaker making beats for sale to local artists. In 2014 he released his debut single titled Enough featuring SoulChard. That was when he decided to really focus and build your name after the song got a few spins on radio. In 2016 he did a house remake of Cal Vin s Hit Single Bebengakholwa and it gave a bit of traction and direction to what route he wanted to take in terms of genre and sound. Then in 2017 he worked with Kemm Vocals and released a song titled Woza Kimi. The song was number one for 4 weeks on Skyz, Metro FM and was also nominated for Best House/Gqom Song at the 2017 Skyz Metro FM Awards.
