    My Way - Themba's Herd Remix - The Deepshakerz,
South African Themba burst onto the global scene in 2018. This summer Themba is resident DJ at Black Coffee's party at Hi, has shows at Ushuaia, Amnesia, Blue Marlin & Heart, while also touring in over 20 other countries.
Early 2019 saw Themba at Brixton 02 Academy, Luciano & Friends Tulum, Paris Fashion week and at Miami Music Week for Black Coffee and All Gone Pete Tong, where Themba's set was used as Pete Tong's BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix.
Themba's sound forged from his African roots creates his unique take on electronic music. 2018 he released 'Paliva EP' & 'Haai EP' on Knee Deep In Sound, 'Vuma / Lost' on Yoshitoshi & 'Who Is Themba?' on his Herd label, which remained in the Beatport chart for a year. His music is supported by Black Coffee, Adam Beyer, Pete Tong, Hot Since 82, Damian Lazarus, Masters At Work and more. Recent singles 'The Wolf' and 'iLEMBE' on Herd have caused a stir at Themba's shows. In demand as a remixer, he added his magic to Paxx (Tulum) 'Djoloren' on Stealth and Deepshakerz ‘Tell Me’ on Saved.
2018 highlights included a residency at Hi in Ibiza and Mixmag Lab Live in NYC both with Black Coffee.
Themba has featured in Mixmag, DJ Magazine Ibiza and DJ UK, Ushuaia Mag, Faze and Deep House Amsterdam. Radio mixes have aired on Pete Tong's show, Apple Music's Beats 1 and Ibiza Sonica. He was nominated for 'Best Newcomer' 2018 and is up for 'Best Breakthrough' 2019 at the Ibiza DJ Awards and presented a documentary for Beatport 'Monitor Johannesburg'.
