Frequently credited with the creation and advancement of Shangaan electro, a frantic hybrid dance-music style, Nozinja is a South African talent scout, promoter, producer, musician, and DJ based in Soweto. England's Honest Jon's label helped the sound of Shangaan electro spread through the 2010 compilation Shangaan Electro: New Wave Dance Music from South Africa. The set credited Nozinja as the producer of tracks by the likes of Tshetsha Boys and Tiyiselani Vomaseve, as well as Zinja Hlungwani, Nozinja's daughter. Meanwhile, Nozinja produced video clips, uploaded to YouTube, that provided outsiders with a greater understanding of accompanying dance styles. Warp signed Nozinja, whose first release for the label was the 2014 single "Tsekeleke." Debut full-length Nozinja Lodge followed in 2015. ~ Andy Kellman
