South African girl was telling me his bro lives in Brum, they do quite low-key gigs there as it's a default tour stop. Might have to reach next time he's here.

Think I just missed him?

South Africans are the biggest consumers of house music in the world, and Johannesburg is the beating heart of their scene. If you're looking for proof, there is no need to visit a nightclub. In turning on a television, listening to the radio or walking down the street, it's clear that a 4/4 pulse is the metronome of everyday life. The city's preferred sound—vocal-led, percussive, melodic—is largely at odds with what's popular in other international markets; this coupled with cripplingly slow internet speeds goes someway to explaining SA's absence from the global house music conversation. 

But although the scene's stars hold ambitions that extend well beyond the country's borders, the reality is that they're thriving on home turf. Johannesburg has written—and continues to write—its own narrative. It has tales of hardship. The fight to free itself from the brutality of apartheid, and the role music played in that struggle. In a city still rife with poverty, house music can offer a way out. For our latest Real Scenes film we journeyed to Johannesburg and its outer lying townships, meeting the DJs, producers, promoters and record labels who are central to its story.

For the latest edition in our film series with SONOS, we travelled to South Africa to hear how a national icon was made.

 

Before we visited Johannesburg to shoot a Real Scenes film, we'd heard that Black Coffee was a big star in South Africa. But what we saw eclipsed anything we could have imagined. Nathi Maphumulo is a national icon—an artist who has come to embody the creative and professional potential for black South Africans in a post-apartheid world. For the last ten years, Nathi has been producing and playing house music that drips with soul. His style draws inspiration from the indigenous music of his homeland, blended with a love for classic hooks and songwriting. It's a blueprint that's helped him inspire a generation of South African producers.

 

All of which makes Nathi an ideal subject for ORIGINS. In order to tell the story of his formative years, we first travelled to Umlazi, a township outside of Durban where he developed a passion for music that would shape the rest of his life. We then spent time in Ngangalizwe, Mthatha, a township where, under the care of his grandmother, Nathi learned some of the harsh realities of rural living. This was also the place where, on the night Nelson Mandela was released from prison, Nathi was involved in an accident that left him without the use of his left hand. When Nathi visited his old high school, the frenzied reaction to his appearance showed just how large his story—one of success in the face of adversity—looms in the mind of young South Africans.
