Shangaan Electro is the street level dance phenomenon from South Africa that went global in 2010 on the back of a series of viral youtube clips and an acclaimed compilation on Honest Jon's that introduced the movers and shakers in this fast emerging micro-genre. Shangaan Electro replaces Shangaan music's traditional instrumentation with midi-keyboard sounds, re-pitched vocal samples and jacking four to the floor beats, then amps things up to breakneck speeds of over 180BPM. This is hyper-kinetic digital dance music custom made for weekly dance offs in Soweto, and it's getting ever faster...
This will be the first time ever Shangaan Electro show in Holland! Based on a Soweto street party, the live show will feature the stars of the Honest Jon's compilation - producer/mastermind and vocalist Nozinja aka 'Dog' and the clown-masked Tshetsha Boys among them - alongside the fastest Shangaan dancers and fast-rising kwaito/house producer and Nozinja affiliate DJ Spoko (co-producer of DJ Mujava's 'Township Funk').
