This is understandable when the man behind the music reveals his roots in the homelands of Eshowe, and explains the far reaching significance of music in his life. His debut album, “A Giant Leap” won Best New Artist at the SAMAs in 2009 and Culoe has been making waves and leaving his mark in house music circles, locally and internationally ever since.

With over two decades of deejaying under his belt, Vinny Da Vinci is one of the most important figures on the South African Electronic Dance Music scene. Vinny has helped galvanize deep underground club culture in his various guises as a partner in the power house, House Afrika Records; as a compiler and executive producer of many of their top-selling compilations; as a producer alongside his long-time friend and partner, DJ Christos. 

Vinny da Vinci has played alongside the biggest DJs in the world including Louie Vega, Jazzy Jeff, Rocco, Ralf Gum and many more. The sky's the limit for the legendary maestro, so expect a whole lot more at #BudX #LabJHB from the man who likes to say “Music is my life and there ain’t no stopping…da deep is gonna getcha!”
