τάουν φανκ


θυμίζει τους πρώιμους lfo και forgemasters και είναι ένα από τα κομμάτια που σημαδεύουν το φετινό καλοκαίρι. κι απ' τα κομμάτια της χρονιάς. το βίντεο είναι κλεμμένο από τον haunted dancehall...
Elvis Maswanganyi aged 21 well know as DJ Mujava hails from Pretoria in a township called Attridgeville. He was raised in a family of 7, father, two sisters and two brothers. From all the family members he was the only one who had love for music as he used to be a dancer and he spent his spare time practicing with a small keyboard that he had at home. He was inspired by the likes of DJ Fresh, DJ Oskido, Masters At Work, Revolution, Loop Masters, etc.
Unlike other producers who had a chance to go to school to study music, DJ Mujava had to learn the hard way, by striving very hard to get a way of knowing how to programme music. His brother sacrificed not to throw himself a party and decided to buy Mujava a computer so he could learn and master his production skills..
Pretoria based community stations played a huge role in honing and familiarizing DJ Mujava’s music to the masses. Within no time Mujava had become a household name in his neighborhood. Taxis and taverners were flocking to DJ Mujava’s house requesting that he gives them the music he was producing. Without any strains and hassles, Mujava would give these people his material as everybody was excited about this. His production became the talk of town and taxi’s started punting his tracks in a big way. This was now becoming a trend that every taxi has to play a DJ Mujava CD. Through all of this, he managed to learn the trade as he was becoming more exposed to the music industry. A recording deal was in the cards, however Mujava wanted to learn the business side of this industry.
