UPZ bids farewell with final “Best Of” compilation
UPZ bids farewell with “Best Of UPZ” compilation.
UPZ, the producer/DJ that has given us singles like Pure Surprise, Believing, Uzongilinda (UPZ rmx), What’s The Point, Afrika Wo-man (with Black Motion), Love Is Not For Hire (Black Coffee Remix and more has released a career spanning compilation in his final year under the UPZ moniker.
UPZ – real name Avi Elman – will no longer be releasing new music and is scheduled to perform his final DJ shows as UPZ this year.
“I really enjoyed working as UPZ and have been flattered with the great responses and support received. During the past few years, however, I have been feeling personally and professionally challenged, and came to the conclusion that it is time for me to move on to other endeavors and music projects. The UPZ brand may no longer be actively around, but the music will still be there for all to listen to and hopefully enjoy. To those that truly supported and took part, thank you for the incredible journey”
Farewell UPZ and thanks for all the music
Throughout the years, UPZ has worked with Black Coffee, Black Motion, Cuebur, DJ Ganyani, Sio, Proverb, Mariechan, Abicah Soul, Stephanie Cooke, Kafele and many more, while DJ’ing in multiple continents and events. Support has come in from industry giants Louis Vega, Dimitri from Paris, Satin Jackets, Fresh, Euphonik, Vinny Da Vinci, Black Coffee, Christos, Kid Fonque, Shimza and more.
Born in Israel but raised in South Africa, UPZ has dual citizenship and over the years has been splitting his time between Tel Aviv and Johannesburg,
