A couple of days ago, I watched Resident Advisor‘s latest addition to their Real Scenes series, a portrait on the vibrant house scene in Johannesburg.

Since South African producer Culoe de Song attended last year’s RBMA in Barcelona, he has been traded as one of the most promising talents among house enthusiasts.

Culoe also contributed a mix to Resident Advisor‘s podcast series, proving that he’s also got talent as a DJ. More mixes can be found on this Brownswood thread.
