Giggs Superstar



 

Giggs Superstar

It's 11pm on a Saturday night, Giggs Superstar swags up in his Adidas endorsed gear and he and his entourage pile into his Land Rover 4x4. It's the third party of the night and there's still two more to go. Until Sunday, that is. Then the party-rocking routine starts all over again... and, let's not forget, that this routine begins on a Thursday. South Africa's house-heads simply can't get enough of Giggs Superstar. His life optimizes the jet-set DJ lifestyle that South Africa's top DJs lead.

But it wasn't always this way. Giggs spent his childhood between Soweto and Vosloorus, and began his journey behind the counter of Soul Candi's legendary record store in Rosebank. Giggs Superstar exemplifies the idea that hard work, passion and determination can bring great reward.

Giggs Superstar has earned his reputation as one of the most rocking DJ's in the SA House scene. With two (2) platinum selling compilations & two (3) Solo albums behind his only 31yr old name, appearing on every major TV show, supplying mixes to the biggest show on SA's most listened to national radio station, getting editorial and electronic media coverage from every medium, rocking the masses in every corner of Africa, endorsing an international clothing brand...yet remaining completely humble...indeed makes a true Superstar!

Giggs Superstar phenomenal journey is fuelled by a passion for house music and multi-coloured musical background. The songs and sounds of Miriam Makeba, Kippie Moeketsi and Mzwakhe Mbuli provided a jazzy soundtrack to his childhood. His older sister Nomvula would play the sounds of what was then called ‘international house’— an introduction which provided a starting point to a life-long love affair. This is where a four-to-the-floor house beat crept in and continues to shine through his distinctive style.

His day job at SoulCandi Records as A&R and Label assistant has provided an invaluable research library where he studies the labels, artists and producers whose music now fills his sets. "Every time I buy a record I look at the label and the producer. There's so much behind a track. I'll do some research and I'm guaranteed to find more great tracks.." he says.
