RENOWNED South African disc spinner and producer, DJ Christos and his protégé, Lady Sakhe are expected to light up downtown Maseru entertainment joint, Cuban Linx during their Expensive Music Experience show on Sunday.
The show kicks off at 2pm till late and DJ Christos, who is also known as South Africa’s Godfather of House, will share the stage with local acts such as TshepzaDJ, Agent K, Lady Dee and Davertz.
DJ Christos co-founded the popular Kalawa Jazmee Records which along with his own Katsaitis Music, launched the careers of some of the most recognisable South African artistes, including Boom Shaka, the late Lebo Mathosa, Shana, Daw and Black Coffee. DJ Christos also produces deep Afro-funk alongside Vinny Da Vinci as the ensemble, DJs At Work.
DJ Christos’s Katsaitis Music label has worked with top international labels, Real Tone Records (France) and GOGO Music (Germany) and it is one of major DJ agencies in South Africa, representing the likes of Black Coffee and Vinny Da Vinci, as well as European DJs like Ralf Gum, Franck Roger and Rocco. Christos has played with all these big guns, as well as the likes of Louie Vega, Frankie Knuckles, Mr V and Dennis Ferrer.
Lady Sakhe who is a deejay at the popular South African radio station, Metro FM is also signed to Katsaitis Music.
DJ Christos is no stranger to the local entertainment scene and he keeps coming back because house music aficionados never get enough of his deep house and soulful blending skills which play on for long hours.
Cuban Linx co-owner DJ Mekonko this week told the Weekender that he was looking forward to the performance by DJ Christos, one of his all-time favourite DJs “who always delivers”.
“I am currently pushing soulful house sessions which I host on Fridays alongside local deejays but this time I decided to feature Christos,” DJ Mekonko said.
“Christos is one of the people who inspire me. I first hosted him in 2011 and he has always left an impression even in shows that were organised by other people. Lady Sakhe is an upcoming artist under Christos’ stable who will be introducing herself behind the decks.
“The event is on Sunday because we want it to be a laid back type of setting on a day that most people will be on the Christmas break from work and school,” DJ Mekonko added.
