Homegrown talent Desiree makes her debut appearance in The Lab Johannesburg next week after a soaring year in her career. Having made guest appearances on BBC Radio 1’s Soundsystem, Keinemusik Radio Show and Groove Podcast, Desiree’s Afrocentric tastemaking sensibilities have traversed far and wide. The Joburg-born DJ and producer continues to push her tastes in synth-laden techno and house music and has flourished in the past year sharing stages with the likes of Hone Dijon, Black Coffee, and Mano Le Tough. Fresh off the back of her first-ever European tour, Desiree’s debut EP is looking set for release in the very near future.
Joining Desiree in the Lab next week is up-and-comer StaShe alongside 23-year-old Nataša. Both born and raised in South Africa, StaShe and Nataša take pride in their Afro-influenced selections. From StaShe’s bassy, acid grooves to Nataša’s deep house and downtempo cuts, catch every slice of the South African scene in The Lab Johannesburg next week and sign up for guestlist here.
