The Blockbuster Block Party DJ Lineup
Featuring South Africa’s hottest DJs and dance acts, the stage is set and the countdown is ready. They’ll have amazing tunes across all genres from hip-hop and house music to R&B, pop and more. Your New Year’s Eve plans are sorted! Here’s the lineup, to mention just a few:
Born in Dannhauser, a small town in Kwa-Zulu Natal, Zinhle Jiyane, aka DJ Zinhle, has become one of the most celebrated female house DJs in South Africa. And she is bringing umlilo (the fire) this December. So, be sure to not miss any action coming from her!
Born in Cuba and raised in Angola, DJ Dino Bravo moved to South Africa in the early 90s, where he started spinning vinyl at Club 51 in Yeoville. With a career that spans 30 years, this well-known DJ is revered for his eclectic fusion of genres, including hip-hop, kwaito, pop, Bhangra music and more.
DJ Euphonik is one of South Africa’s most popular DJs, whose dance music spans a variety of genres, including commercial house, Afro-house, deep house, R&B and kwaito. Euphonik was given a DJ slot on DJ Fresh’s show on 5FM and soon afterwards bagged his own show on the same radio station.
Fresh, AKA ‘Big Dawg’, started his career as a DJ on YFM and later moved to 5FM, where he hosted both the morning and afternoon drive shows for nine years. Currently, DJ Fresh hosts The Fresh Breakfast Show on Metro FM.
DJ Ready D, also known as The Black Battle Cat or DJ X-Plode, catapulted onto the scene after winning the South African National DJ Championship in 1990. In 2005, he released his first solo album and a second called Big Air Society in 2014. As a music producer, TV host, radio DJ and mentor to many aspiring hip-hop artists, Ready D is undoubtedly one of the most skilled and versatile musical artists South Africa has ever seen.
