#MusicExchange: DJ PH releases new single

Known for his impressive versatility and energetic stage presence, PH Madubela, also known as DJ PH, is arguably one of South Africa's finest entertainers.
He boasts an exciting 12-year, and counting, career as a DJ. PH is a household name in the South African music industry, who always captures audiences with his signature mash-up sets. Never one to shy away from experimenting outside of his comfort zone, he has built a brand that brings music together in unforgettable sets.

His talent has landed him repeat appearances on some of the world’s most reputable stages and radio shows, in countries across Europe and Africa. Alongside this, PH also features as a VJ on the biggest music variety show in South Africa, Live Amp.

He is now the host of Metro FM’s #CruiseControl on Saturdays from 1pm to 3pm. Just last week PH released a new single with Da L.E.S, Tumi Tladi and Kiddo entitled “Gotta Go”.

I caught up with PH last week.
