Cape Town Electronic Music Festival returns this weekend for a third edition of beatmaking, bass, and house music. This year's series marks the first time the event has boasted a heavy array of imports (the inaugural 2012 festival featured a 100% South African lineup). Joining international headliners The Original Jazzy Jay (US), Caspa (UK), and deep house's Dixon (Germany), are South African heavyweights the likes of Black Coffee, Dirty Paraffin, and Culoe De Song (head here for the full lineup). As CTEMF braces to kick off tomorrow with its most international roster thus far, we thought we'd run down some names from the impressive crop of hometown heroes slated to carry the bill. Below are eight Cape Town-based artists we expect to sound mind-boggling this weekend.
