House music trends come and go, but good quality, underground music always stands the test of time. 2018 was certainly a standout year for the Afro scene, as the rhythmical sound seemed to be the backbone for DJs across a wide range of dance music genres. It’s great to see the hypnotic vibes now be embraced by a multitude of scenes, but remember, we at Traxsource have been championing the Afro scene since its very beginning. We don’t follow the latest trends, we follow good music. And on that note, here’s our selection of the best Afro House Artists for 2018.
