Pioneer of the Shangaan Electro genre, Nozinja has spearheaded an iconic, Afro-futurist strain of electronic dance music combining kwaito, Tsonga disco, South African house and local folk traditions. He presides over a community of dancers, singers and musicians who he A&Rs, records, produces and releases across South Africa via Nozinja Music. Through this vast output, Nozinja has forged the Shangaan Electro' sound. This forward thinking approach has also found a kinship with DJs and producers such as Caribou, The Knife, Actress, and Mount Kimbie.
The playlists offer an introduction to Shangaan Electro releases so far, as well as Nozinja's links with European and North American electronic producers.
