DJ action in Durban

2010-08-20 00:00

SOME of South Africa’s finest music talent will get together in Durban this weekend  when   deep-house   duo Liquideep­, is joined by leading DJs Christos, DJ Bongz and ProVerb (MC), to mark the first of a series of regional build-up events for the Hennessy Artistry 2010 campaign­.

Liquideep — Jonathan ‘Ziyon’ Christian and Thabo ‘Ryzor’ Shokgolo — are currently riding a wave of success thanks to their hit Fairytale, which Christian penned last year following the break-up of a relationship.

Joining them will be Christos Katsaitis, aka DJ Christos, who has been named the Godfather of South African­ house music.

He has been on the scene for two decades and has worked with, among others, Boom Shaka­, the late Lebo Mathosa, Shana, Daw and Black Coffee.

Durbanites will also be able to enjoy the sounds of Bongani Dlamini, aka DJ Bongz, who has cemented his standing as a leading Durban-based dance act with albums­ such as Sobabili, No Retreat, No Surrender, Survival of the Fittest and Spacebongz, which came out last December.

Max’s Lifestyle in Area Drive, Section­ V, Umlazi, is the place to be tomorrow from 2 pm, before the musos­ move to Delasol at 258 Florida Road, Morningside, from 10 pm.

Both events are a precursor to the star-studded Halo Event in Johannesburg on September 11.

The show will be headlined by South African Music Award winning­ hip-hop superstars Teargas­, Liquideep, Afro-funk songstress­ Zamajobe and energetic jazzy groove-injected dance act GoodLuck.

Their music is also being featured­ on a new collaborative­ track called Blazing, which is produced by the DJs @ Work duo, Christos and Vinny da Vinci­.

The South African events form part of the global­ Hennessy­ Artistry campaign, which culminates in an exclusive VIP concert in New York.
