The South African dance king readies a full-length effort.

After signing with the label last year, Shangaan electro originator Nozinja will release his debut album on Warp Records on June 1.

Titled Nozinja Lodge, the album promises to explore the full range of Shangaan electro, from “white-knuckle, rave-channelling cuts” to “deeper, lilting” tracks, while “endlessly chasing the visceral thrill of the dance.”

Stream ‘Xihukwani’ below for a taste of what to expect; the album’s excellent cover art follows. Along with a residence at Doug Aitken’s Station To Station, Nozinja has announced a slate of tour dates.
