Cape Town native Niskerone started his musical jo as a child, having discovered early Jungle and D&B through tapes brought over from the UK. Growing up in the suburb of Mitchell's Plain meant these new sounds were incredibly difficult to acquire, so the hunt began. It would prove to be the foundation of what would define his ethos - an ongoing quest to find and embrace the freshest original sounds.
Niskerone is the founder & resident of It Came. From The Jungle, SA's longest running weekly club night of over 10 years. Established as a home for Drum & Bass Music that's always pushing new artists, while playing host to a variety of international talent including Friction, Dimension, Sigma, Camo & Krooked, DJ Fresh, Noisia & Skrillex amongst many others.
He has played an instrumental role in the growth and sustainability of D&B and Bass Music across SA, consistently pushing and nurturing the genres in many cities through constantly touring and by utilizing his various channels, which includes his 3 year residency on SA radio juggernaut, 5FM and previously on college favourite UCT Radio with multiple appearances on TV channels such as MTV Base, SABC and Channel 0.
Niskerone is a regular headliner for the majority of South African festivals and clubs. Earning him the reputation as one the most technically gifted performers in SA with a keen ear for innovation along with a hard earned knack for getting the best out of any dance floor situation
He has toured the European continent many times over with notable stand out shows including Weekend Festival (FIN & EST), Monegros Festival (ES), Laundry Day Festival (BE), Zurich Street Parade (SUI), Amnesia (Ibiza) and Liquicity (BE), as well as shows around the USA amongst other countries
