BlackJean

Bio

BlackJean is a musician and DJ from South Africa. DJ-Producer and Pretoria`s Recording Engineer, Black Jean (Gosiame Maodi), never dreamt his part-time hobby would become a full-time career. What began as something he enjoyed sharing with friends has led to more performances every year.

Black Jean has shared a stage with the likes of Vinny Da Vinci, DJ Christos, Ralf Gum, QB Smith, Essential I, Smooth T, Silly Bean, Nastee Nev just to name the few.

Throughout his childhood, music was woven into every fiber of his being. Raised in a home where music was always in the background, Black Jean’s early influences were through his family’s vast musical tastes, which ranged from jazz, classic country to disco, funk, and R & B. Songs by Herbie Handcock, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, John Coltrane. Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker played endlessly on the turntable.

Black Jean began Deejaying and Producing at age 15, just for fun, on a friend’s PC using NI Traktor, Fruity Loops, Reason and Cubase at the bedroom studio. He spent countless hours learning to play his favorite songs he heard on the radio, never imagining one day his own music would be streamed over the airwaves.

After watching his friends play in bands throughout high school, church and college, and witnessing the energy and excitement that came with performing live, Black Jean realized forming a band, and becoming a performing artist was something he too wanted to pursue. It wasn’t until his mid-twenties that he got serious about playing and deejaying and formed a local electronic house jazz band “60 Hertz Project” as the deejay and producer.
