Having hosted shows for Fat Joe, 50 Cent and Akon, Major League DJz have proven to be one of the most formidable duos in South Africa. Founding New Age Kwaito, celebrating South Africa’s rich musical history and driving the country’s diverse musical scene to the forefront of mainstream music.
MixMag have nominated Major League DJs as number 13th on the list of 21 top DJs of the Year.
This is what they had to say.
As Amapiano has taken over the global dance scene in 2021, Major League DJz have been a driving force behind the sound. The Johannesburg-born twin brothers were raised amid the sounds of Kwaito and Afro house, and are now figureheads for this new dance phenomenon emerging from South Africa. Their tandem sets showcase the synergy you’d expect of twins, moving in unison and they explore deep rhythms, suspenseful beats and rousing vocals. Following Mixmag’s series of The Lab Johannesburg events in 2019, Major League DJz made history this August playing the first ever Amapiano set in The Lab LDN, which has racked up 300,000 plays and counting. Their international appeal is evident with tour dates at huge venues all over Africa, Europe and the US selling out instantly.
Piano to the World.
