Talk about Dance Music in South Africa and before long you’ll be discussing Das Kapital, his label Do Work Records, his two national radio shows, and his work ethic as a DJ, Artist, Producer and Remixer.
As one of the biggest DJs in South Africa, Das Kapital headlines both festivals and club nights across the country bringing a party vibe allied with his excellent technical skills.
He is known for the brilliance of his DJ sets and an ability to read a crowd to whom he transmits the infectious energy of his performances.
This talent has been demonstrated at headline sets at both Zimbabwe and UK festivals as he takes his skills international with great results.
He is also one of the only DJs to have played legendary festival Oppikoppi three years in a row, has headlined Rocking The Daisies, Grietfest, Sonar Cape Town, Mad Decent Block Party and Ultra South Africa.
Das Kapital has been a fixture on Thursday nights on South Africa’s biggest national youth broadcaster 5FM via his popular In Das We Trust segment for the last year, where he brings the most upfront tracks from around the world to a growing base of fans, where he breaks down musical barriers and introduces new sounds every week.
This adds to his weekly two hour Das Kapital Radio Show on Assembly Radio that hosted exclusive DJ mixes from Tiesto, Nicky Romero, Cedric Gervais, Maya Jane Coles, Dismantle, Koan Sound, Prok & Fitch, DJ Cable, DJ Rafik, and Mumbai Science.
Das Kapital’s remix of Corderoy ‘Dark Disco’ hit the Top 10 of the UK’s Buzz Chart in December 2014 and the two are collaborating on the future release Slap Head.
This single will follow up remixes for Stoltenhoff and Mike Cervello’s Guerilla (Rimbu) and All Guns Blazing, Sharkslayer and First Gift’s Sergeant Africa on Top Billin’.
Previous Das Kapital solo singles have been called the “Hottest Track in South Africa” and have also been playlisted by 5FM, YFM, Good Hope and Metro FM.
Other remixes have been completed for Bronze Whale’s “Say It” on Waxhole USA, Ivan Gough & Feenixpawl feat Christine Hoberg “Hear Me” on Neon Records Australia and Royal K feat Lakota Silva’s “Love War” on F! Records / Soul Candi.
He has also written music for Hollywood film trailers and USA TV shows as well as for a number of brand campaigns.
As owner of Do Work Records he has been heavily involved in bringing through the next generation of South African electronic talent where the label will shortly release it’s eighth single.
Artists include Leechi, Hendrik Joerges, RVWR and D.Know.
In 2014 Das Kapital was named as one of GQ Magazine South Africa’s 35 Coolest People Under 35 and was also made one of the Mail & Guardian’s prestigious Top 200 Young South Africans; he has also contributed as a speaker to TEDxUCT in Cape Town and appeared on national TV in South Africa.
He is also a brand ambassador for Puma, Roland SA, and RayBan.
In March 2014 Das Kapital also made headlines in South Africa when he launched the Kyle Brinkmann Breast Cancer Survivor Project in response to a chain of bars’ plastic surgery competition.
Partnering with PinkDrive he has raised over R25, 000 with support from national press and national radio.
