Artist Profile #1
Set time: 22:00
For well over half a decade now, Thibo Tazz has been plying his trade in the South African house music scene, rapidly working his way to the top and then staying there through hard work and constant refinement of his style.
Thibo was selected in 2008 to be part of the Red Bull Music Academy in Barcelona. The experience he had there quickly cemented his place as one of the leading figures in the future afro house scene. His obvious skill has resulted in him playing a number of high-profile and crossover gigs, including a Friday night set at last year’s Rocking The Daisies. He was also given the honour of mixing the latest in the Soul Candi House series, Deep House Chronicles vol. 8, a privilege afforded only to house music’s most respected figures.
Sonically, Thibo is one of the most eclectic DJs around – as Red Bull Studios notes, he “perfectly balances his use of ‘true’ House influenced bass-lines and throbbing African style drum-lines with a more subversive brooding sound, which borders on Techno”. This marrying of styles means his sound is well and truly progressive, and he is perfectly placed to kick the night off in style.
