Hi Yaku is 24 year old Deep House & Progressive House producer/ DJ from Botswana set to break new ground in his country. He started producing music from the age of 18, mainly focusing on Hip-Hop and R&B. His journey into House music began in 2006 when he started producing Deep House, but has had to take sabbaticals due to reasons he won't reveal [whatever keeps you happy dude!]
The majority of his time in production during 2008 was spent with one of the local Hip-Hop groups which he helped work on an album. But more importantly, it is only until recently in 2008 that his type of Deep House took a different direction. He remained heavily influenced by it but could no longer call his work "Deep House". This is evident in his melodic compositions which lent themselves to being progressive in nature and constantly changing. Only in January of 2009 did he finally grab the idea or direction in which his music was going, when he heard the addictive sounds of Progressive House [while he slept, by the way]. His first reaction when he woke? "That is exactly where my music is going!!" *insert his evil grin HERE*
To date, Hi Yaku spends time perfecting his Progressive House melodies and baselines, as well as setting a new trend by playing pulsating Prog House sets at the odd event or two. But mostly, "Spending time at home working on new music is what I prefer over going out for a party." is what he prefers to do on a normal night. . . [Yeah, right!]
Expect a lot from this young and budding producer/ DJ, who can easily be classed as the "Cream of the crop" in his local industry. Also expect an album from him which should hit stores sometime this year and will appeal to anybody with an ear for good music. Watch this space
