Positive Minds, or P.M Project as many will know them by, was formed in 2007 and they have been releasing music as P.M Project since 2010 on local and international record labels. Labels such as DNH Records (Canada), soWhat Records (Israel), SoSo Deep Records (US), Blackwhole (RSA), Deep Calls Recordings (RSA) and Atal Music (France) to name a few. They have defined and introduced their unique style of Deep/ Afro-House, which has been influenced by global, African traditional music. Over the years, P.M Project held DJ Residencies and performed at various events, and club nights alongside renowned artists, musicians and DJs, the likes of Liquideep, DJ Christos, Micasa, Mr. Cee, Abicah Soul and Harrison Crump.
Before P.M Project was formerly formed, all members of the group were mobile DJs in their hometown, Virginia in Free State. They grew up listening to all kinds of music genres and drew musical inspiration from the great African traditional, soul and jazz musicians, the likes of Oliver Mdukuzi, Tlhokwe Sehume, Salif Keita, Sipho Mabuse and Oumou Sangare. Growing up in a neighborhood surrounded by negative deeds such as crime, gangsters and drug abuse, it never discouraged, or lured them to committing to such activities. They knew they have special talent, in music, and share common interests. They started working together as a group, organizing small events to promote their music and came up with the name, Positive Minds; it soon evolved to P.M Project.
Early 2010, P.M Project got busy in studio and was soon discovered by Stephen Rigmaiden; the founder of SoSo Deep Records based in California, United States, and began to release their music to the world. “Bosiu Kaofela” was their debut single on SoSo Deep Records. The debut single got released, digitally, and it peaked at 24 on Traxsource Top 100, now how is that for a debut. After the debut release, P.M Project began to do remix for renowned producers and artists around the globe, including Hanna Hais, Suges , Oscar P, Mr. Cee, DJ Veany and Andy Compton to name a few.
In 2011 P.M Project entered and won the Blackwhole remix competition, with an afro, club banger remix titled “Lifted (P.M Project Corner Café Mix)” originally produced by Mr. Cee featuring Lady X on vocals, and it appears on House Blendz 2 Compilation CD Album mixed by DJ Malankane from Soul Candi Records, South Africa, and the song was released digitally on soWhat Records, owned by Alvi Elman also known as UPZ. It has been aired on radio, nationwide. Now being already recognized by various house heads, P.M Project produced a soulful deep, tech house song titled “With You”, featuring Jazzman Rantsane on vocal and Andy Compton on guitar. The song is valued and it has being played by many local DJs at club nights and on radio dance shows like The Urban Beat on Metro FM., and other online radio networks.
Now with a couple of tremendous Releases/Remixes under their belt P.M Project continues to grow and spread their sound in their region as well as Worldwide.
