South Africa

K-$, the DJ-cum-internet-sensation-cum-cultural-figure-head, hails from Cape Town’s lively Southern Surburbs but also from a quantum realm few can comprehend, and fewer yet have actually seen. Since a wee lad, he has been cultivating a keen interest in the musical arts and while studying the mysteries of the universe, taught himself to play various instruments, expanding his understanding of the art form as well as his knowledge of the cosmos. Spawned from the seed of a mysterious DJ known as “Uncle Michael”, this selector developed a deep love for timeless classics and is naturally drawn to the rhythms emerging from the golden years of RnB, Funk, Disco and Soul. The soundtrack of yesterday play boys, mac daddies, supalovers and other such masters of the universe, has persona and his otherworldly aesthetic.
