Shangaan Electro Mastermind Nozinja Makes His Warp Records Debut With 'Tsekeleke'

Shangaan Electro mastermind Nozinja makes his Warp Records debut with the video for 'Tsekeleke,' shot by Chris Saunders in Johannesburg.


Earlier this month news broke that Shangaan Electro mastermind Nozinja had signed to Warp Records. Wasting no time, the South African producer pioneer has unveiled his debut single at his new label home, a less frantic side of Shangaan Electro's signature lightning speed. The "Tsekeleke" video, which is already an easy frontrunner for video of the year, was shot in Joburg by South African filmmaker/photographer Chris Saunders. Watch the surrealist Shangaan visuals below and look out for more from Nozinja coming up soon (including a slew of European dates which you can peep below). In the meantime, Warp put together a pretty extensive listening guide to their most recent signee over here.

It is tempting to make saints out of the departed. The former Zambian struggle hero did many great things. He was, after all, one of the giants of the continent's struggle against colonialism.
