South Africa’s top House DJ, Euphonik, is in Namibia for the third installment of his hugely successful African Tour tomorow at the Summer House Festival here.
African fans can also look forward to additional shows in Mozambique and a special EP, which will be released on conclusion of the tour, containing a collection of new singles recorded in collaboration with talented artists from each territory. Following his immense International demand and success in recent years, the South African house DJ, producer and radio host, has turned his focus on his home continent this year, determined to expand his brand and eager to bring the definitive Euphonik sound experience to all his African fans.
Euphonik expressed his excitement to share stages with some of Africa’s top musicians while on tour, in a collaborative effort to mix together a unique blend of African sounds. “Although South Africa has been the biggest House Music market in the world for the last few years, my African fans are yet to experience house on all levels. Through once-in-a-lifetime artist and sound collaborations, I hope to bring them mind-blowing performances,” says Euphonik.
Indeed, according to Davin Phillips, CSA director and Euphonik’s talent manager, Euphonik has picked just the right time, saying: “The current African landscape is alive with so many diverse sounds, there’s never been a more exciting time for Euphonik to extend his blend of house, electro and dance elements to music fans around the continent.”
