South Africa has become a household name in the dance music scene, with many labels, artists, producers and DJs conquering the world in recent years. And with many of todays most renown DJs travelling to South Africa to play, there is no doubt the scene there is constantly growing and plays an important part in the world of house music today. In addition, the South African Music Conference (SAMC) has been launched a couple of years ago, inspired by the Winter Music Conference. This conference aims to bring together the South African houe music scene, its heros - Brothers of Peace (aka Oscar 'Osikdo' Mdlongwa and Bruce 'Dope' Sebitlo), Mahoota, DJ's at Work (aka Vinny da Vinci and DJ Christos), Black Coffee to name just a few - and young, upcomfing talents with some of the worlds most famous DJs and producers.
Furthermore, with House Afrika Records there exists a record label and store in Johannesburg (South Africa) that is committed to house music, selling not only vinyls and CDs but also DJ gear. Then there is AfrodesiaMP3, a digital download store which has been created in response to the ever growing demand for dance music from the African continent and to give a platform to all the African Labels, Artist and Producers who would like to present their unique style of music to the rest of the world.
