CRAZY WHITE BOY
Genre: Deep House
Labelled “The future of dance music in South Africa” - Crazy White Boy is the brainchild of South African producers Ryan Murgatroyd and Konstantinos Karatamoglou. Both experienced and successful DJs and producers in their own right - the pair met and collaborated. Together they have worked their way up from bedroom producers into a powerful, leading presence in the South African music market as well as the rest of the world.
Compelled to try and add a fresh twist to this style of music, they set about writing with an African kwaito style which they call “Ghetto Tech”. Their aim - to deliver a sound that stands out and more importantly challenges the local and international ear.
The results are multiple Gold and Platinum-selling albums featuring their tracks locally and internationally. International record labels include Kontor, Onelove, Ministry of Sound, Cr2, F! Records and local powerhouse Soul Candi to name but a few.
Their first radio submission ‘Love you Better’ is officially the fastest record in South African radio history to hit the number one slot on a leading national radio station 5FM. The track later went on to hit number one on many other of the local stations and in 2013 they were Nominated for Best Group Album at the METRO FM AWARDS.
