Nozinja announces debut album ‘Nozinja Lodge’

07.04.15

Nozinja will release his debut album, 'Nozinja Lodge', on June 1st via Warp Records.

A key figure behind the spread of Shangaan Electro, a breakneck-paced South African dance style, Nozinja's album has been a while coming. Last year he announced his signing to Warp with the Tsekeleke 12", while a collaboration with Tessela followed. 'Nozinja Lodge' promises to mix rave-channelling tracks with deeper sounds, and features a community of Shangaan vocalists. 

Nozinja will take up residence at The Barbican in London for the Doug Aitken-curated Station to Station, and will play a few international festivals.

You can hear a new song, Xihukwani, now.
