A world leader in base heavy electronic dance music

As one of the top exports of the SA electronic dance scene, HAEZER has established himself as a leader in the bass heavy electronic dance music genre which has gained wide spread popularity in clubs around the world.

His recent tour of Europe saw him playing 34 shows across the continent with 9 festivals including Hurricane and Southside sharing the stage with Gessaffelstein, FM Belfast, Breakbot and Chase n Status.

With 3 headlining tours to Australia under his belt and 2 top 30 Electro House Beatport singles HAEZER is proving to be an artist worth keeping an eye on.

“Gained wide spread popularity in clubs around the world”

His latest release, SHANGO is available for free download. His August 2012 EP release The Wrong Kid Died was released on DIM MAK Records. The 6 track EP features iconic South African vocalists Tumi (Tumi and the Volume), Circe, Francois van Coke and Hunter Kennedy of Fokofpolisiekar, Mike Zietsman of PH FAT and Evil Boy most noted for his collaborations with Die Antwoord.

The EP steps away from overly distorted synths giving spotlight to clean heavy bass rhythms combined with varied synth melodies and sees HAEZER returning to vocal collaborations as in his earlier productions.
