Bruce Loko

Bruce Loko is a Mpumalanga bred DJ and producer. In the year 2000 he received a compact disc as a gift from the renowned Don Laka, a South African jazz musician, pianist, songwriter, music producer and entrepreneur, as a baton to begin putting effort on the clearly evident fate in music. Receiving the CD was the birth of a now long standing career, Bruce began devoting himself to steering his focus "behind the decks".

The artist began composing a few tunes after having received the CD and mentorship from Don Laka, however kept his music underground until a later stage in 2013 when he met Atjazz and embarked on a music project that led him into a career breakthrough due to the co-effort the two put in.

Loko released his first EP labelled Plutonic cut in 2015 on Atjazz Record Company then later he worked with Red Bull Studios Cape Town which dropped his second Drago EP. One of his tracks was also picked by Kid Fonque and featured on Red Bull Summer Edition.

Thanks to the jazzy background Bruce was mentored under, the Bruce Loko sound is nothing close to what South Africans would typically project as "house music". His penchant for atmospheric sounds is packed with souring unabashed emotions and cinematic flourishes. Loko’s vision is to make his fans go spiral over his tracks with his bizarre sound design techniques.
