Drawing a triumphant first year to a close, Sef Kombo and Louie Dunmore’s Sondela label will host its debut showcase at presigious London nightclub Ministry of Sound on 20th November, showcasing a host of Afro house talent in the capital.
Headlining the show will be one of South Africa’s premier house talents Black Motion, alongside Afro tech star DJEFF, DJ Mag’s Afro House DJ of 2019 Da Capo and Club Bad founder and long-time friend of Defected Melé. Anticipated sets from London Afro house champions Sef Kombo and Kitty Amor are also set to be highlights of the evening. Sondela A&R Louie Dunmore, Black Coffee and Blue Marlin resident Badbox and South African star Vanco – the duo behind Sondela’s latest cut ‘Alive’, complete the line-up.
Launched in February 2021 as part of the Defected family of labels, all proceeds from Sondela’s recordings go to South African organisation Bridges For Music, a non-profit gathering key players of the music industry to support responsible progress in developing countries. With releases from Hyenah, Native Tribe, Enoo Napa, Benny T and more, their records have garnered tastemaker support from the likes of Black Coffee, Kitty Amor, Pete Tong, Âme and Dixon, swiftly becoming a must-know label for discerning selectors. Covered by the likes of Mixmag, BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra, Resident Advisor and DJ Mag, Sondela now prepare for their eighth release on the imrpint as well as the Ministry of Sound event, as it continues to flourish and break new ground musically.
Making a statement with its first event in the label’s home town by taking over a venue as iconic as Ministry of Sound, partygoers heading to the event in November will be able to experience the breadth of talent across Sondela’s international roster at a venue with world-renowned production capabilities, steeped in house history. With co-label head Sef Kombo at the helm, having celebrated a decade of putting on his highly popular Til Two parties, plus Defected’s expert team of event coordinators, this party has all the makings of a night to remember.
