Gatefold jacket. Jaw-dropping debut solo album from Nozinja, the brains behind South Africa's maddest export - Shangaan Electro. Arriving five years since he set floors alight from Limpopo to Salford with an acclaimed compilation for Honest Jon's, he presents the most diverse Shangaan expo to date with 'Nozinja Lodge' cycling between free-wheeling 180bpm signatures to highly idiosyncratic takes on militant Hi-NRG disco via string-heavy epics and pinging digi-dub pop mutations, all sprinkled with his patented, super-bright and melodic arrangements. For energy and soul he's practically unrivalled on the world stage - all those goons with pyrotechnics can do one, this dude is the real deal; how often does Steve Aoki get on the mic and say "we're going all the way to 185bpm!", and take it there while fronted by four dancers in clown costumes and ra-ra skirts?! Anyway, we're pretty sure you'll have made your mind up about the Shangaan sound - you either love or hate it - but, in case you're uncertain, this record contains some of his tightest, brightest songs, from the fluoro peacock NRG of 'Xihukwani' to the stately string intro and quicksilver soul of 'Nyamso' and the surprise, slow-swaying 'Wo Va Jaha' to close, framing one of the wildest albums you'll hear in 2015.
