Aero Manyelo
Born in Zebediela, Limpopo in 1987, and growing up in the Johannesburg township of Ivory Park, Manyelo was influenced by his father’s love of jazz – and his music has a depth that distinguishes it from South Africa’s plethora of house music. Township Electro is how Manyelo describes his sound and sees him ready to take it to increasing numbers of fans around the globe and at home. Over the past decade, Manyelo’s career has been rapidly gaining momentum on the back of a string of releases on labels such as Out Here Records, Akwaaba Music, Get Physical Music and his own label Herbal 3 Records. His considerable remix skills have also been in demand (Amadou & Mariam’s “Ce N’est Pas Bon” and Jupiter & Okwess International’s “Margarita”), while his original tracks have been included in several high-profile international compilations, and has worked with many renowned artists.

Rafael Aragon
Birthday boy Rafael also joins us! His obsessive curiosity has him digging through everything from latin beats to oriental melodies, unearthing unique samples that he (re)mixes, twists and polishes with a watchmaker’s precision. Rafael’s music is demanding but light-hearted, intelligent but down to earth, and overcomes musical language barriers with its lack of stylistic limitations.
