Durban Dubs to Cape Town Chills
Ninja and Yolandi Vi$$er of Die Antwoord may have made international audiences sit up and take notice, but more and more South African DJs and producers are making waves internationally – whether its drum & bass or future kwaito these guys aren’t following trends but forging their own cool sound!
Veranda Panda from Durban are among the most unique and memorable acts in South Africa, known for their blend of funk, hip-hop influences, violin music, and even orchestral elements – which makes for a surprising soundtrack at any dance party!
Niskerone is another artist to keep an eye on; not only does he produce and DJ his signature brand of African-flavored humid-nightsand-killer-bass electro, he also runs one of Cape Town’s longest running weekly drum & bass nights as part of Cape Town’s gravy collective which showcases pioneers of electronic music in South Africa.
Richard the Third is another Cape Town-based producer and DJ. When not entertaining dancefloor audiences with his grimey, African-flavoured future kwaito, Richard works as manager at Red Bull Studio Cape Town; an initiative exploring South Africa’s musical potential while expanding its EDM scene. Richard himself creates music which ranges from modern bass music with 4/4 beats through to future kwaito combined with soaring synths and deep, pulsing low end.
South African DJ scene is more varied than you may be used to. From Cape Town’s Niskerone to Johannesburg’s Black Coffee, South Africa has an exciting music scene filled with various subgenres that keep music lovers coming back.
Beginning on Louis Botha Avenue during the early ’90s, club 206 artists helped develop an indie drum and bass culture in South Africa. When international sanctions were lifted, record importation flourished while pioneers of modern dance music from around the world arrived – eventually culminating with massive Mother Raves taking place regularly as another push towards this exciting musical revolution.
While the scene has changed considerably since, its roots remain strong. Niskerone, widely hailed as “King of the Underground Drum & Bass Jungle” (Cape Argus), now heads It Came From The Jungle at Fiction DJ Bar in Cape Town; serving as its founder. Here he showcases his mixing and production talents while planning to release his debut album soon.
As well as performing weekly at his venue, he’s been keeping busy touring around the country with his sonic attacks, headlining major festivals such as Rocking The Daisies, Vortex, Oppikoppi Long Street Festival Earthdance Synergy RAMFest among others. Additionally he’s spent considerable time abroad, performing concerts in Belgium, Germany and Sweden among many other locations.
Niskerone has released vinyl albums through Grid, Guinea Pig, Zombie Recordings and Hollow Point Records. His sound can be characterized by deep and dark bass lines with melodies that stand out. Niskerone excels at crafting the right riffs and tempo changes to create the ideal atmosphere on dance floors; not afraid to venture into less anticipated territories either!
No matter his hectic schedule, he always finds time to give back to the local community. Right now he’s hosting a free workshop on bass music and technology at Langa Cultural Centre with Bridges for Music non-profit organization; open to people of all ages including budding DJs and producers.
Richard the Third
Richard the Third was an outwardly selfless politician, yet made one poor call after another after making one in 1483 that led him into increasingly bloody situations resulting from this initial bad but likely necessary decision. It resulted in a long, bloody battle in which Buckingham and Richmond were murdered as the king was ultimately defeated at Bosworth Field – his body serving as a reminder of what happens when politicians judge themselves by their own standards.
