Housefreqs Radio – Mister’Benji

https://housefreqs.com/dj/misterbenji/

Mister’Benji, real name Benjamin Lekgau from a town named Polokwane in the Limpopo province (South Africa) currently residing in the big city of Johannesburg in the Gauteng province (South Africa). I fell in love with house music back in the early 90’s during my primary schooling days through one of the largest urban radio station in South Africa called MetroFM, i would cross-night on weekends listening to my favorite mix shows & DJ’s mixing live which really inspired me to curiously wonder how they did it. Fast froward to my high schooling days i started attempting to mixing songs which i would record on a TDK cassettes and that’s where the story began. I started DJying on a mainstream club level just over a decade ago for which during that time i was exploring my sound. Am now confident to proudly say am content with the choice of sound am currently embracing which that of deep house sound. I play deep house in it’s most diverse; from Soulful, Tech , Broken beats & Nujazz with a blend of Afrohouse. My stage name as one would obviously guess, it comes from my birthname “Benjamin”.

I recently together with my fellow DJ friends started an entertainment movement named Deeper-Sound-Prophecy for which we use to advance & promote the house music culture, more preferably deep house.

MORE ABOUT PAVEMENT:-

Based in Birmingham.

House, Tech & Acid with moody tones of the Funk & Soul era.

After an upbringing around music through my family, i grew up with an interest in the DJ world, and began with a weekly slot at a local bar in my hometown, playing chilled House, Funk & Soul vibes. After recently moving to Birmingham, i am burying my roots into the thriving club industry of Digbeth, while occasionally throwing out Funk & Soul sets for friends events around the UK, the most recent of these being at ‘Sticky Mike’s’ in Brighton. Currently spinning two turntables through a 4 channel Traktor controller, this gives me the use of vinyl and digital for a broad yet refined style of play.

I am also a studying Visual Designer with an interest in texture and tone, and work predominantly with music artwork and club flyers – https://www.instagram.com/billyedwardscreate/

Egg presents: Erick Morillo (Extended Set) Tickets | Egg London London | Sat 19th November 2016 Lineup

Pirupa + Keinemusik – &Me, Adam Port, David Meyer

Line-up /

Main room:
Erick Morillo (Extended Set)
Pirupa
Emery Warman

Terrace:
Keinemusik feat.
&ME
Adam Port
David Mayer
Reznik

With a stack of awards on his mantle piece, Erick Morillo is one of house music’s most celebrated characters. From his 90s roots as part of New York’s legendary Strictly Rhythm label, where he recorded under a dizzying array of aliases, including RAW and Li’l Mo Ying Yang, to conquering the UK charts as part of Reel II Reel with ‘I Like to Move It’, the New York born DJ has always exuded star quality. His Subliminal label spawned its own party series and he became one of the world’s most prolific DJs, collaborating with huge names like Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, aka Puff Daddy. After a break in 2013, when his famous party lifestyle began to overshadow his DJing, he has since returned more vital and energetic than ever.

He’s joined by Pirupa. The Italian DJ and producer is best known for his 2012 Desolat smash ‘Party Non Stop’, but his versatile, often quirky house sound has also found a home on a dizzying array of labels including Drumcode, Crosstown Rebels, Get Physical, Defected, Cècille, Viva Music, Saved, Noir Music, Snatch! Records and Suara. It’s this kind of productivity and popularity that’s raised him up to become RA’s 11th most charted artist. His NONSTOP label, launched in 2015, has since become a further platform for his sound, as well as allowing him collaborate with newer acts.

Taking over the second room are Berlin label Keinemusik, founded in 2009, bringing with them their all-star crew. Joint founder &ME is also one half of Terranova, who released their second on Kompakt last year to great acclaim. He’s joined by the prolific Adam Port, whose teutonic house and techno sound has graced labels such as Rockets & Ponies, Cocoon and Pets Recordings. Alongside them are rising German stars David Mayer, another founding member of the label whose magic production touch has previously been sought out by numerous other artists, and Reznik, a Berlin DJ whose tastes stretch from post-punk to techno, via house, disco, electro and everything of note else in-between.

Music Genres:

Electro, House

John Digweed is a British DJ and record producer. He began DJing at around age 13. He realised the only way to break through was to start his own nightclub and book the big names like Carl Cox for him to play with. His break finally came when Sasha (real name Alexander Coe) played at Digweed’s Bedrock nightclub in Hastings. Sasha, impressed by what he heard, offered Digweed the residency with him at the now seminal club Renaissance, at that time in Mansfield.
