Oatmeal Dubs Ocean Eyes is a great synth-keys driven left field house burner. This is a slightly weird deep house pleasure. Favorite track: What Have You Done with My Ocean Eyes.

Rose Bonica has navigated her way into the South African electronic music industry, claiming her space as a producer and performer in the early hours of the morning with raging tracks in dark techno basements. It cannot be easy to break into a boy’s club as a self taught musician, and Tears for the Tea Maker feels like a way to soothe the scars of Rose Bonica’s musical experience so far.

So often it is the ones that we love who provide this balm in these anxious moments. We expose ourselves and share our truths with those who we trust. Tears for Tea Maker is an ode to the intimacy and love that grows from supporting one another in the very simple and often unglamorous ways, the methods that get no recognition. This is an insight into Rose’s private world, the gentle soothing and calming nature of being cared for when you are vulnerable.
