Mix of the Day | Thrumcast 017 – Ofuren

We are delighted to kick 2015 off with a mix from an exciting young talent hailing from Witbank a.k.a. “place of coal”, situated near Johannesburg.

Siyabonga “Ofuren” Ngwenya first caught our attention via a guest mix which was broadcast on a community radio station early in 2014. An unexpected and unashamedly deep set that revealed a strongly-individualistic ear, we immediately reached out and connected with this kindred spirit.

Ofuren is a producer first and foremost – and has been releasing music since he was 19. He also curates for Roots Go Deep, which boasts a healthy discography featuring a host of like-minded local artists. Last year saw the labels first vinyl offering, a superb collaboration EP by Ofuren and Fred Buddah, and this was followed up with an outing on the revered Deep Explorer imprint.

At age 21, Ofuren is without any doubt someone to keep an eye out for.
