South African native “Themba” is certainly making a name for himself having burst onto the global dance scene in 2018 with a string of high profile gigs and music releases. Highlights so far have been his residency at “Hi” in Ibiza and a Mixmag Lab Live in NYC both with “Black Coffee”. “Themba” has also made his debut at Ushuaia, Blue Marlin and Pacha in Ibiza.
His sound is forged from his African roots, incorporating local singers, songwriters and percussionists to create his own unique and distinct take on house and techno. His debut ‘Paliva EP’ was released on the “Knee Deep In Sound” label, followed up by the highly acclaimed “Who Is Themba?” on his own Herd label. His music has been heavily supported by “Black Coffee, Adam Beyer, Pete Tong, Hot Since 82” and many more of the world’s most influential tastemakers.
It has been an incredible few months for “Themba”, making his debut in December 2017 playing with “Black Coffee” at Shimmy Beach South Africa. Early 2018 saw him play the Resistance stage at Ultra Festival, supporting Faithless on tour, Elrow and the Corona Sunset festival all in South Africa. This was followed by supporting Black Coffee on his Spring tour of the UK.
Capturing the industry’s attention, “Themba” has recently featured in Mixmag, DJ Magazine Ibiza and DJ UK, Ushuaia Magazine, Faze and Deep House Amsterdam. His DJ mixes have featured on radio including Pete Tong’s radio show, Apple Music’s Beats 1 and Ibiza Sonica. “Themba” has also been nominated for “Best Newcomer” at the Ibiza DJ Awards and he recently presented a short documentary for Beatport called “Monitor Johannesburg”.
“Themba” has been made an ambassador for the “Bridges For Music” charity in South Africa, something very close to his heart. Themba and Dubfire recently hosted a workshop for young students at their school in Langa, Cape Town, South Africa, which aims to become a learning space and creative hub where these young, talented individuals are able to pursue their dreams and develop their music skills, both in production and the music business.
