Finest Features

Finest Features
House music & features are simply made for each other. Born organically from a symbiotic need in which a singer needs a beat, and a DJ needs a singer. It’s a musical relationship that has worked well over the years. Meeting the needs of both producer and artist, while in the process, giving birth to some of the finest features to ever grace the world of house music.

So where do we begin? Well, possibly with Calvin Harris. Why you may ask? Well, because no one better illustrates the power a good feature has to transform a track than him. Over the years, no other house producer has been as successful as Calvin when it comes to picking the right partner to feature on a house beat. Rihanna, Ellie Goulding, Kelis, Dua Lipa & Sam Smith are but a few who’ve done their thing on a Calvin Harris beat. Yeah it’s all pretty impressive. However no more impressive than the records each of the features have broken as they’ve climbed the charts. Popularizing house music in the process, by using artists from outside the genre to sing on a song. Introducing fans to a fresh new sound, that they may not have heard before.

With all that being said, Calvin ain’t got no monopoly on the features thing you know. Over the years, we’ve been fortunate enough to be treated to a feast of features. Too many to mention. However, a few that’ve caught our ears are Black Coffee ft Bucie, Disclosure ft Sam Smith, Heavy-K ft Mpumi, our personal favourite Ralf Gum ft Monique Bingham, and most recently, DJ Maphorisa ft DJ Tira, Busiswa & Moonchild Sanelly. With each collab showcasing its own bit of musical alchemy that moves the masses in its own way.

The art of the feature is nothing out of the ordinary. It’s all about the perfect marriage between the voice and the beat. And if you really want to turn things up, it wouldn’t hurt if the featured artist came with their own signature flava from a different genre you know. All too often, it’s the DJs/producers who get all the credit, however let’s face it – Their tracks would be absolutely nothing, without the artists they feature. We’ve put together a few of the finest features we keep coming back to time & time again. Take a listen, and enjoy!
