The Lab Johannesburg is Mixmag and Budweiser’s weekly live event where they showcase the finest DJs at iconic rooftop bar Venue Thirteen, overlooking starlit Johannesburg.

On Wednesday, June 29, we were excited to showcase Sun-EL Musician plus special guests Sebastién Dutch and Mpho.Wav.

The South African star is known for his fusion of afro-house and electronic, seamlessly blending sounds from these vast genres with elements of alternative pop and soul. He rose to international fame after his debut album 'Africa To The World' was certified gold by the Recording Industry of South Africa (RiSA).

For his hit track 'Akanamali' with Samthing Soweto, Into Ingawe with Ami Faku, and his 'Africa to the World' album, Sun-EL Musician has also been nominated for and won multiple SAMAs (South African Music Awards). With a whopping 31 tracks, Sun-EL Musician's second album was released in December 2020. The album enjoyed considerable streaming success not just in South Africa but also internationally, receiving top ratings on all DSP and radio charts.

He is now also widely known for the work he puts in at his own label, El-World Music. El-World Music has a knack for seeking the best talent and harnessing new sounds. Throughout his career he has also worked with Black Coffee, Msaki, Simmy, Ami Faku and more. As a DJ, Sun-EL Musician knows how to get a party started and set the mood right for any music fan.

Joining him at The Lab Johannesburg were Sebastién Dutch and Mpho.Wav. Sebastién Dutch was born in Ndola, Zambia and was the 2017 winner of the AXE DJ Challenge, and played an All-Africa event in Ibiza. Since then, he has continued to rise and now spins and mixes tracks from the African continent and has garnered an international reputation for his DJing skill. In 2013, he released a collaborative album with the late DJ LBC titled 'Power Of The Drum'.

Mpho.Wav is a DJ and producer from South Africa, who is signed under Sun-El Musician's own El-World Music label. The emerging star is a skilled DJ with an eclectic taste.

Themba Announces His Ibiza Debut
Deep House Amsterdam #DHA

Ibiza’s all-new and much anticipated Club Chinois welcomes South African house star THEMBA for his very own Colours party. It kicked off in spectacular fashion on Wednesday June 22nd and now runs every week until September 28th. The the season will feature a handpicked list of cutting-edge DJs from across the electronic music spectrum including David Morales, Dubfire, Nic Fanciulli, Floyd Lavine, Culoe De Song, Guy Mantzur, Sébastien Léger, Willian Djoko, Salomé Le Chat, Sef Kombo, Eagles & Butterflies, Eli & Fur and many more.

THEMBA is the groundbreaking South African artist who burst onto the dance scene in 2018 with a series of high-profile sets and releases such as ‘Who Is THEMBA?’ which became a chart-topping global smash. THEMBA’s sound is forged from his African roots, incorporating local singers, songwriters and percussionists to create his own unique take on electronic music. He has released on top labels including Knee Deep In Sound, and his ambitious 2021 album ‘Modern Africa Volume 1 (Ekhaya)’ set another high standard.

THEMBA is a regular presence on the world circuit and was a much-loved Ibiza guest at various clubs in 2019. Now he heads up his own unique Colours party which sees him curate line-ups of world-class international talent and showcase his signature sound just as he intends it.

On June 22nd, he was joined by long-time progressive house innovator Guy Mantzur, Angelos and China. On June 29th, he will play with acclaimed French melodic house DJ Sébastien Léger plus Cristina Tosio and Ricardo Da Costa. On July 6th, an all-female line-up features Fiona Kraft and Rebellion artist Salomé Le Chat while July 13th brings Badbox and house dream team ANDHIM. A week after on the 20th is South Africa’s house talent Julian Gomes with the dreamy sounds of Eagles & Butterflies and Italo-Albanian talent &LEZ. Lastly, on the 27th is Miami-based duo Andretta, plus the moody and melancholic house of Eli & Fur and Anastacia.

August brings the sophisticated grooves of Laolu, Nico De Andrea and Paris-based duo Birds of Mind on the 3rd, and South African mainstay Chynaman plays with techno connoisseur Dorian Craft and Ibiza favourite Serge Devant on the 10th. Spaniard Chus and Robin Tordjman then play on the 17th, and 24th August is leading Greek selector Da Mike, plus Cincity and the charismatic William Djoko. On the 31st, another South African star in Floyd Lavine is joined by longtime house legend David Morales and FNX Omar.

September brings one half of Force of Nature, aka DJ Kent, and West African talent Amémé with Airrica on the 7th, then Gab Rhome, Bekzin Terris and SCI+TEC boss Dubfire all play on the 14th. The 21st welcomes Afro house pioneer Culoe De Song, Sef Kombo and Kitty Amor, and the same week THEMBA plays an extended set. Finally, Manoo and Saved label head Nic Fanciulli play on the 28th.

The 3,000-square-meter Club Chinois has already become the most anticipated opening on the island and has been meticulously designed by award-winning Parisian design studio Laleh Assefi. Located in the former HEART Ibiza venue and inspired by the decadent but iniquitous jazz clubs of 1930’s Shanghai, Club Chinois will host international talent from acclaimed resident DJs to superstar artists and headliners, providing an immersive experience of the highest quality.

“I grew so much and learnt so much at Soul Candi when it came to being a business owner, but it was very stressful and it wasn’t what I wanted to do. I had to be a hit-making machine to be able to pay all the bills.”
Nicoll's journey of House Music in Johannesburg

To most house cats, deep house is often viewed as house music’s more sophisticated, elder sibling. The music often has undertones of jazz, soul and, in South Africa, draws upon local music such as Sinakho Dance, Maskandi and Isichatamiya.

For Nicoll, promoting deep house music is his life’s mission. “I worked at Soul Candi as the label manager and, generally speaking, if I liked a song, it meant it wouldn’t do well on radio,” he said with a chuckle.

At the time, his job required him to find “the next big radio hit”, which meant overlooking some of the good deep house music for which he had an affinity.

In the early 2000s, Soul Candi was a pioneer in South African house music and Nicoll was at the helm of shaping that...
