Rudo Deep well known as Phakamani Mazibuko to fellow friends and relatives is a young producer hailing from the east side of Johannesburg. As a young boy he always was involved in musical activities during my early school years. He started by joining the choir when he was 8 years old and that’s when he fell in love with the piano and was intrigued by the soulful sounds it brought. Rudo first started producing hip-hop beats at the tender age of 14 and already had a chance to meet up with some of the well-known acts in the culture of hip-hop. At the early age of 16 his passion for house music began, he started mixing and collecting house music with a couple of friends. Every Friday he would have a mixing practice session then on weekends he would go on to deejay in local pubs free of charge. During the period of 2010, he was slowly and fairly being noticed by people from his hometown due to holding different kinds of sessions in local pubs. In 2011 he became co-founder of a group called “Loose Grooves “which made a name for itself and consisted of five members. They were resident deejays for local spot in Johannesburg called “Pata Pata” and that’s where they started playing around different pubs/clubs.
After a long period of producing music, he was later discovered by Infinite Boys (Kalawa) and mentored by Sculptured Music (House Africa). He worked on a number of remixes and original works which were showcased on “Afrodesia mp3” and Vogue sessions hosted by Infinite Boys. In 2014, Rudo was introduced by fellow colleague Jonny Miller to record label owner of DM.Recordings, D-Malice who signed him to label with the his first release ‘“Announcement”.
