The South African producer has packed nine exclusives into his 15-track mix for the Berlin institution.
De Song, born Culolethu Zulu, is a deep house producer from South Africa's east coast who has built up a strong following based off of his work for Mule Musiq and Innervisions. Back in 2014, he put out the well-received Y.O.U.D. EP through Dixon and Âme's label, and this year, he launched his own outlet, De Song Music, with his fourth full-length, Washa. For his entry into the famed Watergate mix series, he's included unheard tracks of his own, along with cuts from the likes of &ME, Em Ex, Mr Joe and Guti, many of them unreleased. The set follows Matthias Meyer's Watergate 20, as well as 2016 Watergate releases from La Fleur, Fur Coat and Jimi Jules.
