Soweto Gospel Choir & DJ Groove Terminator explore the history of house

Grammy Award winning Soweto Gospel Choir, Aria-nominated DJ Groove Terminator and Grammy Award winning producer Dennis White (aka Latroit) whose contributions to the world of electronic music span three decades, along with Gallo Music present History of House, a project highlighting dance music’s roots in Africa with a collection of house classics re-imagined in Zulu. On this innovative project due this June, these icons take an exhilarating journey through the history of dance music.

“It’s a natural evolution from the shows we’ve been performing together for the last few years,” says Groove Terminator. “We wanted to inspire people with our takes on classic house songs that uplift them.” Lead single “Good Life” – a reworking of the seminal dance music classic “Good Life” by Inner City – has been met with international acclaim boasting support from some of the world’s most influential DJs and broadcast outlets including Fatboy Slim, Themba, Francis Mercier, KCRW, Radio 1, Defected Radio and more.

In keeping with the spirit of re-imagination, on this first instalment the Australian dance maverick and renowned South African outfit invite a kaleidoscopic line-up of DJs and producers to offer their renditions of the re-imagined “Good Life”.

“Good Life” is an undeniably thrilling sonic voyage through space and time – weaving together musical styles, generations, and regions. With Groove Terminator’s three decades of capturing prized memories on the dancefloor and Soweto Gospel Choir’s well-documented historical feats, partnering with a new generation of talent shows this duo’s appreciation for art’s timelessness.
