As a DJ/producer, Apiwe Bubu creates and connects South African drum rhythms, grooves and sounds infused with Contemporary music. He spins the newest hits of Amapiano, Gqom, Afrobeats, Hip Hop, RnB and Top 40 chart music to his audience. Part of his influence stems from Jazz, 90's Deep House music, Funk, to Bossa Nova & East African music.

Having traveled and collaborated with different artists and DJ's across the world, he has acquired a distinctive style that contributes to his particular DJ performances, selection and love of music.
