K-$ is a DJ and internet sensation hailing from Cape Town’s Southern Suburbs. Having developed a keen appreciation for music when they were nothing but a little mischief maker, they were moved to teach themselves to play various instruments, expanding on their understanding of the art form.
Coming up under a father who was also a DJ, this selecta has a deep love for timeless classics and is naturally drawn to the rhythms emerging from RnB, funk, disco & soul’s golden years. The soundtrack of yesteryear’s playboys, mac daddies & supaluvas has influenced not just their sound, but persona and aesthetic too.
Raw talent and a well-trained ear inform a style that seamlessly blends this heritage with more contemporary favourites, a phenomenon K-$ says, comes down to the fact that the music they grew up on laid a strong foundation, upon which present-day sound is built. This is evident in each of their sets across the city at well-established clubs and events, festivals like Cape Town Electronic Music Festival and MUSE All Weekend Music Festival, as well as in their mixes for the internationally acclaimed Rinse FM and local magazine Bubblegum Club.
One of the youngest members of the LIT squad, they are an old soul trapped in a young body. Expect nothing but quality hits for true music lovers.
