Their first street single was fast added to Metro Fm’s playlist, along with several other regional, community, and campus stations. This happened almost immediately after receiving first play on Glen and Unathi’s ‘Never Heard Before’ segment. They also have an exclusive media showcase planned at Native Rhythms Lounge on 6 June 2012.
Sipho Sithole of Native Rhythms Productions believes their forthcoming album is destined to become a household name. “… not only for those who love house music, but music lovers at large, who will identify with the musicality of the offering – Deepa Trybz has already created a wide admiration from deep house music lovers with their self-titled single after the song received huge reception after debuting on radio. And their forthcoming album scheduled for release next month boasting huge tracks such as ’Carry You’, ‘Mantombi’, ‘“Qoqosha’, as well as Black Coffee’s ‘Save Me’ is going to be the album on everyone’s radar this year”

Deepa Trybz attempts to demystify the myth surrounding “tribal house” as a sub-genre of house music. Contrary to popular belief that it’s rare to find core melody or prolonged synth common to house music in tribal house tracks, Deepa Trybz has defied the norms of deep house music through their combination of soulful vocals and deep house, coupled with a touch of blues. The crew’s display of artistic brilliance is evident in the way ‘Tylo’ weaves lyrics laced with beautiful melodies whilst ‘Pat4’ provides a carpet of continuous harmonies.
The combination of Vuyo Tyolo (‘Tylo’) – one of the freshest and powerful voices to emerge out of these shores together with Native Rhythms’ most celebrated sound engineer-turned producer, Mpho Hlahla (‘Pat4’) are Deepa Trybz. Together they are an outfit that creates intoxicating soulful beats in studio and also enhance each others strengths as performers on stage, the ideal recipe for an interactive live experience.
‘Tylo’ is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist who plays all of the instruments on the album, whilst ‘Pat4’ is a household engineer who has recorded and produced some of the greatest recordings in South Africa. The combination of engineer-cum-producer meets vocalist-cum-keyboardist is the apex of this project, and no doubt it’s already creating rashes on the dance floor ahead of the July 2012 release.
