Baffa Jones Fundraiser
Updated: Feb 14
Kanzen Records has lost it's most prolific artist Baffa Jones aka Mawande through Covid-19 leaving the Record Label, Dance Music Fraternity and Especially His Family devastated. We amply decided to create a Baffa Jones Fundraiser for the benefit of his children, it will consist of a special release of music by Baffa Jones and GoFundMe initiative.
Baffa Jones has always been synonymous with rhythm and dance floor leveling tunes or soul shaking music, he's releases are regular chart toppers with mad love for his music by DJs across the globe.
A soulful individual, with an affinity for the deep musical art. Influenced growing up by Hip Hop and reggae, Jones found House music more by mistake, than by design. As they say, what a happy mistake. He drove more of a house sound that baffles many in definition and prefered the people to judge for themselves as to what it is.
In his own words :
“As soon as I hear the thumping heaviness of a kick drum, I go crazy on a song. Unlike a lot of people I realised late, that this was something that I was good at and that I wanted to do. That said I did music at school, majoring on the piano and recorder (but don’t ask him to read music lol). I played most of the classical material, but now I just do anything and everything with a song. People tend to label my sound and that’s fine, I don’t mind, but I’m’ neither Afro composer nor Deep Tech musician. I’m first and foremost a House Music aficionado”
Although born in Mthatha, Baffa considered himself a resident and homegrown talent of Queenstown in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. He plied his trade all over the globe.
Musical Occupation: Digital Composer, Artwork Designer, Animator, Writer, Remixer and Arranger.
Be original, show off your style, and tell your story.
Many of his real accomplishments when it comes to music had been very underground. Managing to win over greats such as Casamena, Rocco, Ralf Gum, Jerome Sydenham, Manoo and Clive Bean to name but a few. Now he easily stand alongside these and outshines them on most occasions.
