JJOVIJO is the progeny of house music extraordinaire Kevin Butho and music mechanic Martin Chech. Kevin Butho has been lurched within clubbing realm and is a household DJ name in the city for 11 years and counting while Martin works behind the scenes in the studio as a musical genius creating magic for over 12 years now. These two local South African talents amalgamate into JJOVIJO- an international sound of underground house.
Kevin & Martin began as a four year long budding friendship before they finally took the plunge to start their own music engineering workshop in 2011. Unconnectedly their journeys involved majestic experiences of sound with Kevin mixing countless genres at Jhb’s hottest clubs while Martin musically engineered powerful productions. JJOVIJO, their lovechild filtered through all that music exposure maturing into their unique underground sound.
Before JJOVIJO, Kevin Butho & Martin Chech collectively released “In the present” signed by Don’t Look Productions and “Alive” signed by UK based record company, New City Sound Recordings both singles while fooling around in the studio. Passionate as ever, with an attractive foresight of listening please JJOVIJO was conceived.
JJOVIJO's latest projects, a triple-track EP was snatched up by Tryypy Records in Spain. When Soulcandi Records got wind of this fresh sound, the South African music giants signed JJOVIJO's 3-track EP called "Block Party EP". Currently they are working on another recording called " Smoove EP" to be released soon by Soulcandi Records in May 2013
A Bass-driven, frighteningly beautiful underground dream is the sound idea behind JJOVIJO.
