Shangaan electro innovator Nozinja presents his debut album on Warp Records, an invigorating blast of future-facing dance music from Limpopo, South Africa.

Nozinja Lodge sees the producer test the frantic upper limits of Shangaan Electro on white-knuckle, rave-channelling cuts like Baby Do You Feel Me and Vatswelani, while enjoying the freedom to take his foot off the gas and bring a deeper, lilting touch to his trademark sound on Vomaseve Hina and closing track Jaha. Featuring a community of Shangaan vocalists alongside Nozinja, the songs take in themes of love, faith and tribal customs - while endlessly chasing the visceral thrill of the dance.

The record has a unique soul, stamped with the spirit of the Shangaan people, their language and musical history. Coming out of South Africa's vibrant post-apartheid cultural landscape but with no clearly discernible peers, Nozinja is a true visionary of the 21st century digital diaspora.

This summer Nozinja will be in residence at Station to Station, a '30 Day Happening' curated by Doug Aitken taking place at London's Barbican. He will also be performing at a number of summer festivals, starting on 1 May with Red Bull Music Academy Festival in New York.
