The Afro House Power House

While dance music has been popular in South Africa for decades, recent years have seen the rise of a sound and a scene that is on the verge of conquering the world: Afro House. From underground clubs to mega-festival mainstages it is slowly becoming the biggest sound around. Mixmag's Global Editorial Director Nick DeCosemo – who spent a number of months living in South Africa this year, launching The Lab Johannesburg and produced a recent Mixmag cover devoted to SA artists – brings together some key figures from the South African dance music scene to talk about the rise of Afro House and what happens next.
