Biography

Nozinja is the South African producer, showman and innovator behind the revolutionary dance movement known as ‘shangaan electro’. Freshly signed to Warp Records, he now presents a brand new live show showcasing the inimitable next-level programming, hyper-speed dance moves and soulful vocal hooks that make this a club experience like no other.

Shangaan electro connects South African folk tradition with contemporary genres like kwaito and house, and Nozinja has transcended these reference points to dream up his own iconic Afro-futurist strain of electronic dance music. There is nothing quite like a Nozinja production: it is home-grown rave music in its purest form.

The Soweto-based, svengali has produced a hugely popular back catalogue of tapes, CDs and DVDs for the local market, a choice selection of which was released on the much-acclaimed Honest Jon’s compilation ‘Shangaan Electro’ and later futureshocked in fine style on ‘Shangaan Shake’, an arsenal of killer remixes from the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Actress, Theo Parrish and DJ Rashad & DJ Spinn. More recently Dan Snaith (aka Caribou) has put out a string of Nozinja-produced singles (as Xitsonga Dance and Tshetsha Boys) on his Jiaolong imprint.

“this tart, exquisitely wavy new single feels like the perfect thing for spring” – The FADER
“breathless marimba, chintzy MIDI keys, pathos-metered joy” – Pitchfork
