TanZzanite, aka Thandi Nxumalo, was born in Seattle, Washington, USA and moved to SA in 1996. Being introduced to House music in Primary School by her brother - who is heavily into the production scene – hasn’t stopped listening to House music since.
She got into the DJ scene when she was approached by the manager of a local club to enter a female DJ competition (Sisters of Spin). Making it to the semi finals, she was encouraged by many to pursue it further. Nine months on, TanZzanite has slowly but surely been establishing a name in the club scene.
Having had the opportunity to open for Lady Lea, she has played at the same parties as: Poppy (5FM), MiCasa (Soul Candi), Harrison Crump (USA), DJ Kent, Mphoza (Soul Candi), DJ Shimza, Twins on Decks, Speedsta (5FM), Euphonik (5FM), and many more.
TanZzanite plays a wide range of house music, from soulful/vocal house, deep house and has started moving on to an electro-techno-progressive style, catering for all crowds. With not many female DJ’s in the industry, she has a lot to offer as an upcoming female DJ.
