Warp Records Nozinja Nozinja (Shangaan Electro) signs to Warp

Nozinja (Shangaan Electro) signs to Warp

 

We're pleased to announce that Nozinja, mastermind of 'Shangaan Electro', has signed with Warp Records, along with details of upcoming live shows.

Nozinja is the South African artist famous for creating the revolutionary dance movement dubbed 'shangaan electro’. A 21st century reboot of local folk tradition, Tsonga disco, kwaito and South African house, Nozinja has transcended these reference points to dream up an innovative and 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.

Nozinja's sound has found a particular kinship with other forward thinking electronic producers and DJs, with fans and champions including Caribou, The Knife, Mount Kimbie and Pearson Sound. A high profile series of 12”s on Honest Jon's featured Theo Parrish, Rashad & Spinn, Ricardo Villalobos, Hype Williams and others remixing Shangaan tracks, subsequently compiled on the 'Shangaan Shake' double CD. 2013 saw the release of 2 brand new Nozinja cuts (under various pseudonyms) on Dan Snaith's (Caribou, Daphni) Jiaolong label.

We recommend taking a look at the following pieces to learn more about the Nozinja story so far, as well as the upcoming shows (dates below) for a taste of what is to come...
