Dj ElQue is BACK with a KILLer!

Once again, our local hip hop disk jockey, DJ Elque, hits us with a banger before we head into the Winter Season. This time he’s featuring one of the new boys, Lection, the guy who stunned us with his own Motswako rendition of Migos’ ‘Versace’ called ‘Basadi’.
Mzansi411 links up with DJ Elque on the debut of their new track ‘#DressToKill’.

What up Elque?

-Yo, all good fam…

Last time we had a chat was basically about YOU in general terms. Since then you’ve been working. Do you want to tell us more about what’s been on your drawing board?

-Ya, it’s been a pretty interesting journey for me actually. 2013 was quite a productive year having put out the Be Real video and had a debut of two new artists I am working closely with in a form of a song I titled #Humble. The reception has been great and kept me busy with shows and club gigs. It was only up until December 2013 that things turned for the worst. On the 20th I lost my only younger brother. This was a very difficult time for me and my family and required some time out from the music scene. Over the past three months since that incident, a lot of personal growth happened. I am back, stronger and with more depth in the stories I tell through my music.

We send our condolences to you family.
You have a new song dropping. Do tell us more about it:

I have been playing around with the idea of doing a collabo with a Motswako artist for a while, it was just a matter of who and when. I played a few gigs in 2013 alongside this very talented artist, Lection whom we started chatting about a collabo since then. Time was just not allowing. After the break I took off the industry, I came and decided to work on a ‘happy’ song. Celebrate life and open a new chapter in my life. One Tuesday morning I was driving to gym, listening to a beat tape I had from my young producer TRK and that thought crossed my mind to try one of the beats with Lection. I gave him a call, he was home and available, got to his place, played him the beats and he immediately fell in love. We sat and conceptualized the song and the following day Lection was onto something. The Saturday of that week we were both independently scheduled to perform at a huge festival in Lesotho (20 April 2014) and I thought I would like to have this song done before then so I could test it to the public before the official release. Come Saturday morning the song was done and ready. We got to Lesotho and the response was amazing. Came back to joburg and have since been cleaning up the song, mixing and mastering it for mass distribution.

Any ideas of a video for the song?

-A definite yes. When, I’m not sure but as soon as the song gets enough radio recognition.

Besides this, what and who else are you working with?

-The list is endless. Coming from Lesotho and residing in Johannesburg, I see myself working with S.A and international artists. No boundaries really. In December I had my birthday tour gig in Lesotho and the highlight of it all was travelling with International DJ & Producer Nick Holder. From that a deal to work on a few tracks for my upcoming project was done.

How does one get a hold of you?
