GIG OF THE WEEK:
CALLING all fanatics of house music. Tonight Empyre Nightclub hosts a house extravaganza, the Vodacom Unlimited Music Tour. Offering a killer line-up, the artists include Sama winners Micasa, Kid Fonque, Sphectacula, DJ Milkshake, DJ Naves and DJ Euphonik on one stage.
Micasa have grown from strength to strength since the release of their platinum-selling debut album in 2011. This has seen them become mainstays in the local industry with sold-out shows across the country.
DJ Naves represented South Africa at the DJ Conference in the US and his talent has never been in doubt as he continues to offer his growing fan base unique productions that further cement his status as one of the best in the industry.
As for DJ Milkshake, his musical expertise has seen him ride a wave of stardom as his popularity continues to grow. Milkshake’s legendary mashups, which take classic songs from a variety of genres to a new level with fresh and exciting remixes, have seen him widely acknowledged in South Africa as part of the cream of the crop of local DJs.
Arguably one of South Africa’s most sought after DJs, Euphonik has scaled the ranks of DJ, producer and radio presenter in an incredibly short time.
His continued success is built on a solid foundation of perseverance and a good work ethic. This, coupled with his fun and ambitious nature, make for a winning combination and is the reason he is at the cutting edge of the house music scene.
