Cornelius SA is a self-taught DJ and producer from Soshanguve who has risen within the ranks of South Africa’s electronic music elite, courtesy of a dedicated work ethic and a banging discography. 

This DJs ears were sharpened from an early age, developing a curiosity for house music that turned into a love affair with DJing and all aspects of production. His focus on prioritizing the mood of his music has let his tunes take on a deep, mind-moving feel-good groove that is equal parts atmospheric, dark and rhythmic.

From overcoming the perceptions of what his community and family thought about his chosen profession, to overcoming his own creative self-doubt, Cornelius’ journey is that of Africa’s musical awakening on the world stage.
