Hailing from Mbabane, the capital of Swaziland, Nicholas Sibusiso Dlamini got the nickname, “Slotta” in 6th grade from a good friend.
The 'Sweet Temptation EP' is Slotta's debut release on Deeper Shades Recordings. The Swazi producer created 4 emotionally laden deep house gems for the dance floor, and your most intimate moments alike. Slotta takes a personal approach to his music encapturing a deeply embedded emotional connection. The DAW is his template, the instruments are his brushes, and the paint his emotions. He is a true arist that takes seriously to his craft.
The 'Sweet Temptation EP' begins with 'Dare To Dream' putting forth one's aspirations and pushing things to the limit. This is a dreamer's anthem and has the kind of melody you hum while you are working into the wee hours of the morning. A dreamer is never held up by time, workload, or circumstances and this track truly embraces that and brings out the emotions that encapsulate those feelings.
The 2nd track in the EP and title track, 'Sweet Temptation' has a lascivious undertone as the title suggests. The Saxophone teases the listener tempting them to dance while chasing the beat.
'Valley So Green' follows suit to set you free and allow you to lose yourself in the music free of any inhibition while 'Death To Heartache' delicately builds taking the listener into oblivion with intricate melodies and harmonies perfect for the summertime months lounging by the pool or the beach.
Listening to the release in it's entirety makes it feel as if it is meant to be an album more so than a 4 track EP.
