Get to know C-Major & their new album "The Link"
For the last 3 years the South African duo C-Major have been pushing the borders of what is commonly known as Afro House and have been exploring new musical territories, something that can be loosely described as Electronic Afro dub meets Minimal House. They have been working on their first album “The Link” for more than a year and the 12 track album is finally here! We are more than thrilled to get a closer look at the new release and get to know the artists behind it!
