Coldcut is a DJ duo who rose to acclaim in the mid-’80s through production and remix work for a number of modern rock, hip hop, and dance outfits.

It wouldn’t be amiss to call them pioneers of the UK’s electronic dance scene, while also being technological trendsetters, and a unifying force in underground experimental electronic music, through their eclectic radio show.

From being a part of pirate radio in the late ‘80s, to their underground adoption of hip hop techniques via their pioneering use of technology, Coldcut is the vanguard of experimental electronic production across multiple mediums and their latest collaborative initiative, Keleketla!, Keleketla! is an expansive project, reaching outward from Johannesburg to London, Lagos, L.A. and West Papua.
