"I try my best to tell a story through my music, most of my songs are very emotional and musical." - Loxion Deep

Coming from the township of Soweto, where did you pick up the piano influence?

Growing up listening to the likes of Jimmy Dludlu, Hugh Masekela, Louis Vega, Blaze & Reel People just to mention a few. I can simply say that's how my type of sound of piano came about as I try to fuse some soulful music and blending it with that jazz tip and afro elements. It all began back in the days around 2008.




Collaborations seem to play a huge role in the genre. What is your take on it?

I think it all depends on the two artists collaborating because it's all a matter of style of an individual artist and influence when the 2 forces join together to create a strong connection.




The piano scene has shifted from a sub-genre to a lifestyle. Would you say as piano producers your'll intentionally created this shift in the culture

It's not an intentional shift because for me this new sound doesn't really accomodate the real authentic sound of Amapiano, it's just moving sub-bass(Log Drum) and lots of vox - which kills the true meaning of Amapiano. However change is good now we even have more people following the "lifestyle"


You have two projects that were released under House Afrika Presents 100% South African House Vol 1. Can you please go into detail with the projects and how it came about and the role of House Afrika in it

On House Afrika Presents 100% South African House Vol 1 I contributed 10 songs. I was approached by Tim White of House Afrika Records about the opportunity to release an album on this 4 CD bumper pack and he contacted me after hearing one of my mixes titled Chilla Nathi Session.

As a Co-Owner of Afrocentrik Musik - Give us a full scale of the company?

I'm no longer a co-owner at Afrocentrik Musik, I parted ways with them when I had to give full focus on the growth of Loxion Deep Music Ent. and also grow my brand as an individual artist.





What would you say makes you unique from other piano producers?

I try my best to tell a story through my music, most of my songs are very emotional and musical.




Take us through how Xina came to be?

Xina was an idea I've had for some time and I remember in 2016 when I was in studio with Mfr Soul & De Muziqal Chef I share my idea of Xina then we recorded the song and it big in the Amapiano scene during that time with the chanting vocals saying "Xina" (Dance)


You seem to be involved in quite a number of business ventures on the side, please give more insight about them?

I'm involved in events management, I'm also pushing Loxion Deep Music Ent. which specialises in CD pressing, visuals, event organising, mixing & mastering and music production.



Being a dj and a producer, which one of the two has more impact over the other and why - and how do they influence each other?

The producers reputations is built on music they create and deejaying is most likely influenced by production, because every hit one makes we want deejays to play it so the people can be alerted to it. However deejaying has more impact than producing because you get to showboat more skills in terms of bass cutting, playing with effects etc. For the audience to even have a better taste of the actual song produced than in studio.





"The producers reputations is built on music they create"



Who is your biggest influence in the game?

The person who has the greatest positive influence in this music thing is my Mom. She is the one who has the greatest positive influence ever because she has done so many great things that has kept me going in the game even when I had times where I felt like giving up and focus on getting a normal job, she said "No, you are not normal, you are an extra ordinary person with a great musical talent my son and you can't do normal things, just do what you love and everything else will fall into good spaces in good time". Ever since then I've never looked back and here I am still pushing in the game.
