Niskerone

Hailing from the dusty streets of Mitchell’s Plain in the heart of the notorious Cape Flats, the ‘king of the underground Drum & Bass jungle’ in South Africa, Niskerone’s energetic and innovative style of mixing has entertained crowds at festivals and on dance floors around the world.

The man behind It Came From The Jungle, Niskerone started this weekly residency at Fiction DJ Bar in May 2006 after identifying a need in Cape Town for a Drum & Bass night that catered to the lighter side of the genre. Aside from pleasing hundreds of revelers each week, it also secured him slots alongside industry leaders such as Pendulum, Busta Rhymes, The Bloody Beetroots, DJ Fresh (UK), Dieselboy, Sigma, Cutline, and many more.

In 2010, Niskerone took his energetic live sets to the crowds of Europe where he performed in Belgium, Holland, Germany and Sweden, as well as at Spain’s renowned 40 000 strong Monegros Desert Festival. The following year he was invited back to the Monegros Festival to share the stage and billing with David Guetta, Rusko, Boys Noize, Carl Cox, Steve Aoki, Dirtyphonics and many others.

Locally, he has received headline status at nearly every major festival including Rocking The Daisies, Earthdance, Synergy, Rezonance and RAMFest in 2010, and OppiKoppi, Earthdance, Synergy, Rezonance and RAMFest in 2011. Since then Niskerone has continued his metoeric rise in South Africa with many a national tour, as well as abroad playing across Europe and the States.
