They have the attitude, the talent and the determination to succeed.

This is the new house music duo House Nation, who have just released their new album on their own and are now enjoying the wave of success in the music industry.

Their album Element One, which has 12 tracks written and composed by the two, DJ Chicken and Skhulu Mbiza, is currently driving everybody crazy.

"We met through a friend in 2008 and because we had been looking for opportunities in the music industry, we decided to form this group.

"This is purely commercial house, and no wonder we are fast picking up a steady following, and the CD is selling satisfactorily. Right now we distribute the CD through Reliable Music.

"Before we released this CD, one thing that we decided not to do was to compile other people's music and then release it as our own. We are both trained in sound engineering and producing, and therefore, we use these skills to create our own brand of house music," said Skhulu.
