Often called the country’s “Godfather of House”, Christos Katsaitis was one of the founders of the Kalawa label and via this and his own Katsaitis Music he’s been responsible for releasing some of SA’s most ground-breaking artists, including Boom Shaka, Lebo Mathosa, Shana, Daw and Black Coffee.

As a producer he’s worked on classics like Boom Shaka’s ‘Free’, DJ’s At Work’s ‘Hey DJ’ and Shana’s 2008 smash hit ‘Uyangichomela’. DJ Christos also produces deep Afro-funk alongside Vinny Da Vinci as DJ’s At Work, and they won a SAMA in 1998 for Best Dance Album. DJ Christos has since picked up a further four SAMA statues.

Christos’s Katsaitis Music has hooked up with top international partners like Real Tone Records and GOGO Music, and has become the leading DJ agency in South Africa, representing the likes of Black Coffee and Vinny Da Vinci, along with European DJ’s like Ralf Gum, Franck Roger and Rocco. DJ Christos has played with all these big guns, as well as with the likes of Louie Vega, Frankie Knuckles, Mr. V and Dennis Ferrer.DJ Christos and DJ Oskido

His deejaying prowess has been showcased on multiple mix CD’s, including impeccably deep DJ journeys like ‘Club Classics’, ‘Wicked Sounds’, ‘Magic Rhythms’, ‘Real Tone Cuts’ and three volumes each in the ‘Spiritual Journey’ and ‘Channel O House Explosion’ series.

Christos’s reputation has been further enhanced with the establishment of the Southern African Music Conference. Inaugurated in 2004 by his DJ’s Unite collective (which includes Oskido, Vinny Da Vinci, DJ Fresh and Greg Maloka), the SAMC is the largest annual house music conference on the continent, and its accompanying, always-anticipated Magic Sessions gigs have featured international guests like Franck Roger, Charles Webster, Rocco, Abicah Soul, Ralf Gum and Manoo.

A major role player in the deep dance music scene, DJ Christos embodies house music’s ability to break ground, cross boundaries and unify people.
