Our second artist featured in #BubblingUnder is a Soweto-based artist by the name of Hashtag Deep. We are simply blown away by the maturity in his music and had no choice but to feature him. His style reminds us of OVO’s Roy Woods – the melodies and cadence. Trust us fam, this kid has talent and everyone needs to pay attention. We’ll let him introduce himself …
“My name is Hashtag Deep and I’m a 23 year old artist and producer from Soweto, Dobsonville.
I’ve been making music for 7 years now, first learning how to rap in 2011 and then teaching myself music production and engineering in college.
During my third year of college, I decided to fully focus on becoming a solo artist, after learning how to produce and engineer for other artists and friends, which led to me ultimately dropping out of school in my final year to finish my debut project, an EP called ‘Colours’, which was released in July 28, 2016, and got featured on your publication a few months later.
Since then, I’ve been patiently working on my debut album, aiming to release it commercially this year and introduce myself to the national sphere.
My music is a direct reflection of my diverse and complicated upbringing, having grown up listening to alot of genres such as Kwaito, House, Jazz, and Traditional Gospel, before falling in love with Hip Hop and R&B, and being able to tell stories through it.”
