There are many producers who have contributed to the evolution of South African House Music and Arnold Nkombose Madlala a.k.a Dj Nkoh, is on that list.

As a popular KZN DJ Producer, Nkoh, who hails from Malukazi Durban, is recognised as one of the pioneers of Durban Underground.

His personal evolution as a producer has seen him go from producing hip hop to kwaito and house but he is best known for his contribution to the Durban Gqom sound.

He has worked with Lvolvo Derrango on tracks like Touch Lets Go and Izangoma, he produced the highly acclaimed Zulu Love Letter which featured on the Kwaito groups, Skompazi's album.

He then moved to Johannesburg and released his debut album under Ghetto Ruff Records. It was here that he got the opportunity to work with Jozi members Ishmail/Da Les and Malik and he has worked alongside many Jo'burg artists adding the "Durban touch" to the Jo'burg scene.

His production featured on DJ Fisherman's track Izinja Ze Mpilo featuring Oskido and Dr Malinga. He also produced tracks for DJ Cleo, Teddy Bears, and more.

In Durban, Nkoh has had the opportunity to produce and collaborate on hits for Afrotainment's Big Nuz and many of Durban's top artists like, Tzozo, DJ Sgqemeza, Benzy no Mzeyks, MaGroovies, Msawawa and many more.

What makes Nkoh stand out as a producer is his rawness, his rhythms and his direct approach to the dancefloor.


DJ Nkoh ft Holly - Give Me Love


In the production of Give Me Love, Nkoh has reached out of his comfort zone, experimenting with new elements. Nkoh's production has clearly evolved into a more international sound that will appeal to the both the local and European tastemakers.

Give Me Love has a Tropical Afro Dance sound, the marimba and African percussions combined with a big brass section give this track it's up tempo groove.

This song is done in collaboration with singer, songwriter, Holly Wasserfall who brings a killer hook. At just 20 years old this South African star has worked hard at pacing her career while building a credible body of work through great songwriting.


Holly Wasserfall


Holly has recorded two studio albums, performed on multiple platforms and appeared on many Radio and TV shows.

She is no stranger to collaborations and she strives to create music without boundaries. Over the years and since the age of 13, she has collaborated with musicians from Mozambique, Senegal, Congo, and Nigeria.

Her feature on Nkoh's production lends a world class melodic vocal plate to Give Me Love.

It is no mystery why many producers want to work with this gem of a songwriter whose unique voice and her ability to fuse Pop with Afro House sounds gives her the edge.
