Tour Essentials with Djeff Afrozila

DJeff Afrozila is born in a true culture crossroad with a Cape Verdian father and Angolan mother growing up in a capital city such as Lisbon meant being exposed to pop music of the 80s: Michael Jackson, Europe, Michael Bolton, Brian Adams, amongst many others, but living in an African heritage house also meant drinking from the roots of bands and musicians such as Kassav, Tabanka Jazz, Livity, Grace Evora, Eduardo Paim, among others. From his older sister came his first contact with electronic music – Robin S, Reel 2 Real, Sizequeen, Daft Punk, Armand Van Helden – and it was an instant crush.

At an age of fifteen, in 1999, DJeff starts going to club matinées in a true establishment of Lisbon’s club culture, Bauhaus in Estoril. While his friends dance, DJeff observes and learns with the DJ. he collects dance music and researches DJs until he finds his DJ reference of all times, Erick Morillo. The New York DJ would be DJeff’s ultimate inspiration.

In 2008 he moved to Luanda, Angola, where he his reputation follows him, and he’s invited to present a TV show called Made In Angola. It is also in the Angolan heat that his studio and production work begins, a creative output where DJeff always tries to convey his African roots, and in 2010 his first release – collaboration with DJ Silyvi titled “Canjika” – is released through Pandora Records. His remixes and original tracks gain momentum and serious support from international DJs and in the support list Louie Vega’s name stands out. Djeff is now also a label owner of Kazukuta records where he presents new African talents in electronic music.
