Kgotso Jack Maluleke was born and raised in Soweto (Chiawelo), he had his first hand experience at dee-jaying in 2003 using turntables, his first love has always been Kwaito. Speed Garage and International music. As modern day technology made it’s way to the streets he was then introduced to the use of cdjs in 2007 which lead him to explore a whole lot more musically.
It was at this point that his music catalogue began to evolve to different genres such as South African Jazz, Nu Jazz, RnB, Neo Soul, Fusion, Hip Hop, Bossa Nova, Samba, Tri Hop, Drum n Bass, Deep & Soulful House etc… which has now become his solitude or sweet escape. He considers himself an edutainer that’s willing to turn the atmosphere into your oyster, it is safe to say that Jackass is a well seasoned musical genius.
He is passionate about his potential crowd, open mindedness and how free spirited he is, when it comes to music Jackass knows no limits and is always trying to break boundaries. He personally feels that track selection, mixing and blending are a definite must, this way you will certainly get to understand what he is all about.
He founded a movement known as Deep Orgasm Podcast in 2011 and the main aim of this podcast was to give birth to new music and provide platform tounknown deejays/producers and it is self explanatory in the name itself, Deep Orgasm Podcast had been consistent for 5 years straight and Jackass then went on a 2 year hiatus which was much needed, in this space he took the time to regroup, re-channel and rebrand.
His love and passion for dee-jaying was mostly influenced by Dj Fresh/Monde/Bubbles/Christos/Kid Fonque and his love for radio was motivated by Khabzela/Greg Maloka during the early years of YFM (1997) hence the birth of Deep Orgasm Podcast and the ever evolving deejay that we know him to be.
His motivation is simply shaped by the hunger to stay consistent and constantly take his crowd on a journey with every set he plays. If you seek versatility Jackass is certainly the man for the job.
