For everyone who still hears the droning sounds of Vuvuzelas thinking off SA, DJ Mshega has an update for you to whistle along.
With „Get Down“ (Whistle Song) DJ Mshega is taking South African dance floors by storm. In times where HipHop is dominating the charts of the country, his song has chances to become the song of the current summer season in SA. The 26 year-old Linda Hlatshwayo alias DJ Mshesga joined forces with female vocalist Busi N to record the song that combines her soulful voice with the grooving drum beats and the melody played on the thumb piano mbira.
We met up with Mshega back in 2009 when he was working as sound engineer in DJ Clock’s little bedroom studio. We brought Vuvuzelas for them to record some jingles for the radio. 2014 DJ Mshega was crowned Mzansi’s “Master of Spin” at South Africa’s DJ talent show „1’s and 2’s“ that is scouting for the next superstar DJ to come from South Africa’s house music scene.
Today DJ Mshega lives a bit outside of Johannesburg in Ekhurhuleni. Most likely he will benefit from this location, as OR Tambo International Airport is just around the corner and with songs like „Get Down (Whistle song)” DJ Mshega and his music will travel places in 2016.
