Soul Candi


When it comes to allure and street cred, Soul Candi is up there with the very best South African brands. Soul Candi is the DJ’s best friend and the DJ is at the heart of every party. They represent the convergence of the local and global dance music scenes and the attitude and music that is driving this phenomenal South African youth movement. Soul Candi proudly flies the flag for South African house music and is committed to the best music and gear.

Soul Candi is best known for its record label, which boasts some of the hottest DJs and producers in the country. Their releases have been nominated for a multitude of awards, such as the Metro FM Awards and South African Music Awards, including the coveted Song of The Year in 2009. To date they’ve won 3 Multi-Platinum Awards, 5 Platinum Awards and 23 Gold Awards. Soul Candi Records’ sister label, F!Records is responsible for the Bump series, the biggest selling dance CD series in South Africa’s history.

A tiny basement record store in Johannesburg has grown into a powerful, leading player in the South African music market and the country’s most innovative and recognizable dance music brand. Soul Candi has grown to encompass a school, a clothing label, a studio and an events division, but above everything else it represents a lifestyle and an attitude.
