THEMBA might be a new name to many but the talented South African DJ/Producer has been enjoying a meteoric rise over the last few years with performances around the world at some of the biggest venues like Hï Ibiza, Zouk Las Vegas and Blue Marlin in Ibiza.

Now currently in the middle of his own Ibiza residency, Colours at Club Chinois in Ibiza, we caught up with him this week and he talked us through a playlist featuring his top ten African tracks to coincide with his Heritage EP release, featuring Zombie feat Fela Kuti & Afrika 70 that came out on 2nd Sept on Armada Music.


We asked THEMBA about the selection of music he has put together for us below and he told us:

“These are songs that I think define the strong roots of Africa and what being African is about musically, but also push the futuristic boundaries of where Africa is going.”

Listen to THEMBA’s playlist below and read what he had to say about each track he selected.

THEMBA featuring Thakzin – Sound Of Freedom

This is one of my records from my debut album ‘Modern Africa’. Freedom is still something we fight for in Africa but in today’s terms it’s about the fight for mental freedom; I think music is the best weapon to use to express this.
