Shangaan Electro figurehead Nozinja signs to Warp Records

Shangaan Electro’s Nozinja has signed to Warp

The UK label will release “fresh tracks” from the producer in the coming months, with a new live show planned for this Summer.

Nozinja is considered the originator of Shangaan Electro, a lightspeed form of dance music that was developed in South Africa, and popularised in Europe through Honest Jon’s compilation New Wave Dance Music from South Africa.

Since the release of New Wave Dance Music, Nozinja has taken the Shangaan Electro live show around Europe – it’s typically him DJing, with the tracks getting gradually faster, while his crew of in-house dancers perform to the crowd. He’s also housed Shangaan dancing workshops – as FACT’s Chal Ravens experienced last year – and been remixed by the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Rashad & Spinn, Actress and Shackleton.

Nozinja’s forthcoming live dates follow, as well as Shangaan anthem ‘Nwa Gezani My Love’.
