/// The Brother Moves On
The Brother Moves On (TBMO) got tired of the idea of being a band and embraced a multi-aestetic multi-disciplinary concept of a collective happening to new spaces and places.“The Brother’s sound is a tradition-trouncing trans-Atlantic Afro-centric futuristically ancient fusion that jack knifes between offworld spectral dub-metal, hyperrhythmic rock psychedelia, indie-township and astro-afro-free-jazz.”
/// Kid Fonque
Kid Fonque has become a vital part of South African electronic music and club culture over the last 20 years. His talent is the type that refuses to acknowledge boundaries of any kind – be they genres or borders. The respect he is paid by the industry is a result of his no compromise attitude to playing and making music. Rather than following trends, Kid Fonque has always done things his own way and on his own terms. Importantly, every record he reaches for bares all the hallmarks of the Kid Fonque sound – a golden thread that ties all his sets together somehow.
Having come up through the golden era age of hip hop, RAIKO’s sets tend to lean towards music from that era as well as newer music that emulates that distinct sound. His approach is soulful and jazzy with a hint of raw edge that made hip hop so appealing in it’s prime.
/// Kat La Kat
Kat La Kat has earned somewhat legendary status over the past few years, largely thanks to sterling quality of his Deep Vibes mix series. Each episode enjoys a cult following and his popularity in deep house circles has led to a number of bookings at some of South Africa’s biggest festivals and events, a guest mixes on other top deep house podcasts, radio and television shows and being a regular dance floor conductor in night clubs in and around Pretoria and Johannesburg for a decade.
/// Women Who Kill
Hugely influenced by anything audible; Women Who Kill draws inspiration from his surroundings, imperfections, fusing electronic, acoustic, atmospheric, percussive and hypnotic sounds to draw you in, making you never want to leave his Wonderland.
Symatics AKA Sims Phakisi is DJ/Cinematographer and co-founder of Weheartbeat.Although drawing predominantly from his hip-hop origins, his sets also meld together electro, funk & soul.
WeHeartBeat resident and wax fanatic Just Themba is a trusted source of first-rate music. As DJ and collector who specializes in soul and hip hop, his sets have infiltrated both the airwaves and dance floors – proving that he’s got fine taste and the skills to share it.
