Vinyl Escapade to light up Ba.One


Pheello Mosesi

The annual extravaganza known as Vinyl Escapade, an event for deep house heads, will illuminate Ba.One on December 14 this year as it marks its fifth consecutive year.

This unique event, founded in 2019 by Tšolo Chabeli, known by his stage name Deep Taac, and Moseli Tsoeunyane, has become a staple for music aficionados.

Vinyl Escapade is a celebration of deep house music, distinguished by its exclusive use of vinyl records by all participating artists and DJs. According to Deep Taac, this choice adds an unparalleled nostalgic charm to the event, providing attendees with an authentic and immersive musical experience.

The event is not just a gathering; it’s a testament to the vibrant deep house and underground music culture. With its fifth edition on the horizon, Vinyl Escapade promises to attract a diverse crowd of music enthusiasts, all united by their love for the genre and appreciation for vinyl’s unique sound.

“The most recent event was held on February 10, 2024, at Kaycees Club in Roma,” said Deep Taac.

The roots of Vinyl Escapade can be traced back to the Lesotho Deep House Movement (LesMove), a collective formed in 2013 by a trio of visionary youth.

Like Vinyl Escapade itself, LesMove was born out of a deep passion for music and a desire to create meaningful connections within the community.

As Deep Taac explains, LesMove has evolved from a grassroots movement to a driving force behind Lesotho’s deep house scene. Through collaborations with local entities and international partners like Kanzen Records Radio, LesMove has been able to showcase its talent both on the airwaves and through a series of successful local events.

“As our movement continued to grow, we recognized the importance of building a strong connection with our community, and to manifest this deep passion, we decided to create a dedicated event. In doing so, we collaborated with fellow local enthusiasts who represent various entities,” said Deep Taac.

This year’s Vinyl Escapade promises an unforgettable lineup, featuring performances from local legends like Montek, known for pioneering the Vinyl movement with Montek Sounds, as well as turntable virtuosos Saint Mitch and K. Mitnik.

Looking ahead, Deep Taac and the rest of the LesMove team are committed to nurturing Lesotho’s deep house community and taking it to even greater heights.

“We have an active collaboration with Kanzen Records Radio, a prominent online broadcaster headquartered in South Africa. They bring forth a monthly platform where LesMove showcases reverberate. Within these broadcasts, both local and international guests find their place,” hinted Deep Taac.

Beyond the airwaves, Deep Taac revealed that LesMove also set in motion a series of local events that unequivocally validated the viability of our concepts and the resonance of our ideas.

“This validation fuels our aspiration to nurture a fully-fledged deep house community, a vision gaining remarkable traction locally. The growing recognition emboldens us to elevate the Lesotho Deep House Movement to event loftier summits,” he said.
