Having extensively toured South Africa and Europe as Jack Parow’s right-hand man since 2009, DJ Naaldekoker is no stranger to adoring crowds and is sure to garner unprecedented levels of support with his offering of brand new original tracks – some featuring hand-picked guest artists – and phenomenal live DJ’ing skills.
The Meltdown is the first single and features established dance duo GoodLuck. The track is an epic auditory voyage that carries the listener through a haunting soundscape of lush and anthemic production.
Other tracks on DJ Naaldekoker’s pending full-length album include ironic reworks of local sokkie dance hits – one of which is a devious dub-step parody of Kurt Darren’s Kaptein. It illustrates DJ Naaldekoker’s creative ability to blend tongue-in-cheek mischief with authentically fat sounds.
DJ Naaldekoker teams up with popular rapper, JR, on the next single to be released later this year. Ek smaak jou (I like you) shows off the lighter and fundamentally funky side to his rich repertoire. Ek smaak jou is driven by needle-sharp rap skills and an irresistible beat to put the song firmly in contention to become a South African summer anthem.
