TO commemorate the Independence period in style, entertainment joint 4Fordy will host a jam-packed weekend with the highlight being South African veteran DJ and radio personality, Glen Lewis.
Glen Lewis, who was born Lewis Mpotseng Tsinaba, is a popular deejay, producer and a Metro FM presenter born and bred in Soweto township in South Africa. His career spans over a decade and has released quite a number of club bangers like Ndiyo Ndiyo and C’est Lavie.
He is one of the pioneers of the Mid-Tempo trend, releasing the first of the Mid-Tempo CD compilations in 1999. Five months later he released Numero Uno, a collection of pulsating Latic house tracks. Mid-tempo 2000 soon followed.
In 2001, he teamed up with DJ Fresh to release Gatecrusher Meets Afrika. Most recently, he’s proved his versatility as an artist by releasing Mid-tempo III, an album of underground hip-hop tracks mixed with DJ Bionic.
Glen Lewis has become synonymous with deep house tunes, electrifying masses into motion on dance floors throughout the world. As a drive-time DJ on Metro FM, he is both dynamite behind decks and raucous behind the microphone.
In constant demand throughout South Africa, Glen Lewis provides for an electrifying dance experience. He has been in Lesotho and brought the house down a number of times, but fans will still be looking forward his hearing his mixing skills once again.
The Khubetsoana-based 4Fordy will tomorrow play host to Glen’s show, which will be complimented by local heavyweights Mekonko, Tshepzadj, Thoxie, Ebonix and Untitled DJ.
The party will continue on Saturday evening as revellers will be served the best of both house and hip hop tracks by disc spinners Ebonix and Untitled DJ once again, alongside the likes of The Hitman, Da Star and Shaixlacy.
To cap off the Independence celebrations, Mekonko and friends will provide soulful deep house on Sunday afternoon. This session, organisers say, will be more laid back.
