Shangaan Electro Reworks // Nozinja / Honest Jon’s Compilation

It appears that since Shangaan dance music emerged several years ago with basic electronic renditions of music originating in sounds from the Tsonga tribe, Richard ‘Nozinja’ Mthetwa – producer of many dozen Shangaan Electro songs and videos – has been master of the scene.

It’s all great stuff, but even more exciting is the impending release of all the reworks of Shangaan Electro music done by some of the world’s most-respected electronic musicians, compiled onto a double-CD by Honest Jon’s, who just put out the final 12″ in the series.

Artists like Oni Ayhun, DJ Rashad & DJ Spinn and Hype Williams have contributed to the project, and of all the remixes that I have heard so far my favourite is this one by Ricardo Villalobos and Max Lodebauer:

Very conventional dancing featuring music by the TsheTsha Boys here:
