Lose Your Shoes (Remix) (available for streaming and free download) is a single from Denzyl’s self-titled EP. The singer wanted to do something special with this track and so he recorded the remix to ‘reinvent’ the song.
The bouncy version of this potential hit single came out just as Denzyl envisioned. An artist from Durban would only want something as hot as his hometown’s climate. The remix just had to be done – you can “blame it on the boogie” (to paraphrase the late legendary singer Michael Jackson). Denzyl is known in his private circles as someone who likes getting “down” to the groove, so it was inevitable that he would produce an upbeat tune. If this festive season you get itchy feet as result of wearing your “dancing shoes”, you may have to thank Denzyl for that one!
The month of February is usually associated with romanticism and everything love related – the month for couples no doubt! Other forms of love tend to fall by the wayside during this month. However, through this fundamental start of relationships can stem the promotion of healthy dynamics as love in general spearheads change in the world; with acceptance of all and the embracing of diversity.
If I Ain’t Got You is the third single from Denzyl’s album titled the Denzyl EP. This track focuses primarily on romantic love.
These aspects of love are very integral to Denzyl’s mission as an artist who has had to learn self-love first, as a person a living with a disability. Having to accept what one cannot change, gives one the fortitude and discipline to accept what they can’t control – such as another person in the name of love. Love then matures and grows to become unconditional, which would be the ultimate tool in changing the world.
Although this is the third single by Denzyl, it marks his first official music video, which was released on Tuesday the 7th of February. The song seeks to follow the same path as Hate You Love You which was playlisted on Tshwane FM. His debut single titled Look Up, was playlisted across various radio stations such as RmR, Ubuthebe FM, Vibe FM, Siyathuthuka FM, All Time Radio and Mix 98.3. This single went on to claim the number three (3) spot on the Zone Radio charts.
Denzyl is a Durban-born singer who grew up in a musical family, and was introduced to music at the tender age of five. He subsequently learnt to play the guitar in primary school and has also played in his church’s band. Denzyl describes himself as a humble, open-minded and a highly fashionable person. His extremely sociable nature has led him to start an NPO called the Disabled Peoples Foundation, which offers help and encouragement to people with disabilities to live better lives.
Polarities are the essence of a romantic dynamic between a man and woman. In pendulum-like fashion, the masculine and feminine energies can push the relationship to volatile extremes. One minute it is feelings of affection, appreciation and sweet sentiments; and then the next it is discord, spite and disdain. The encompassing sentiments are interchangeable and at times incongruent where reaching a balance is constant work. Hate You Love You by Denzyl, a Durban-based R&B singer, is a song that captures the tumultuous nature of such a relationship.
In this duet featuring songstress Tanya Morrison, the song encapsulates the highs and lows of a common theme that recurs in many relationships. The second official single by Denzyl seeks to follow the same path as his debut, titled Look Up. Look Up was playlisted across various radio stations such as RmR, Ubuthebe FM, Vibe FM, Siyathuthuka FM, All Time Radio and Mix 98.3. This single went on to claim the number 3 spot on the Zone Radio charts.
Look Up and Hate You Love You are both available on the Denzyl EP.

Gone are the days where A&R (Artist & Repertoire) and Talent Managers were there to do it for an artist and ultimately place them in a “sales category”. Nowadays the onus lies with the artists to find their own sound and fan base. Classifying an artist under a particular category may be harder due to today’s wider genres and subsequently a draw of niches.
Singer, Denzyl is one such artist who’s been going through the discovery path. The ‘feel-felt-found’ method has seen Denzyl, real name Denzil Pillay, release his self-titled EP which dropped in December 2015. Denzyl got into music when he was just 5 years old; and so this lass, who hails from KwaZulu Natal, felt now is the time to set his debut and give everyone a taste of his offering.
Denzyl spoke to Lavatory Records about the early stages of his career, divulging the challenges he’d faced, his ambitions and journey thus far.
Durban based singer Denzyl has released his debut E.P. as a four track self titled project. The E.P. is available for streaming on KK Box and Tidal and for purchase on iTunes.
After releasing his E.P. over the festive period in December of 2015, Denzyl made time out of his day to be interviewed by us. The interview will be up in the next few weeks.
Until then check out the Denzyl EP which includes the songs: Lose Your Shoes, If I Ain’t Got You, Look up, Hate You Love You (Featuring Tanya).
