Track of the Week “Get High” by Mr Moeh 24 mixes a range of gently disarming beats with funky episodes and balmy takeovers. Mr Moeh 24's ear for great music is undeniable, particularly in the way this mix embraces the differences in texture and tone. From Wodoo Wolcan to Freddie Joachim and IAMNOBODI, he knows who the greats are and pays just as much attention to the underground gems he so often digs up and dishes out. This mix is a staple for those who value quality production, instrumental prowess and seamless technique – and more importantly, great music.
Originally based in Johannesburg, multimedia designer Mpumelelo Macu, aka Mr Moeh 24, is a self-taught photographer and DJ integrating a deep appreciation for beats into his creative acts around Cape Town.
With a burning passion for jazzy vocals, he says: “If I can move just one person on the dancefloor and change the way they see music, my job is done.” Humble and talented, Macu is the one to provide the glistening maraschino atop a jazz-orientated evening, entertaining and educating simultaneously.
Currently taking over Dillion Sipho Phiri's Creative Nestlings Instagram account with his breathtaking photography, Macu has established himself as a creative go-getter in Cape Town's city centre.
The first South African selector to make US-based Mellow Orange's Silent Selector series, Macu has worked on mixes and appearances with the country's premier electronic beats platform Weheartbeat, which recently won Connect ZA's Young Entrepreneur Award. He opened for Toya Delazy's Due Drop Zero acoustic show and provided a musically fantastic atmosphere for Design Indaba 2014.
