Born in Mafikeng, South Africa. Gumz is a DJ/Producer on the rise. Showing an interest in music from an early age, Gumz began his journey as an artist teaching himself to play the guitar.
However his journey as an electronic artist would not begin until he was introduced to the sounds of tribal house, drawing major inspiration from the likes of Culoe de song and Da Capo. It was from this introduction to electronic music that Gumz decided that he too wanted to create music like this.
A self Taught producer and masters graduate in electrical engineering, it's fair to say Gumz excels in all he does.
Over the years Gumz has continued to refine his sound to what we hear today. A combination of African Percussion, electronic synths and emotive vocals has seen Gumz music picked up by major labels within the Genres of House, Afro House and Afro tech. Having released music with the likes of Aluku Records, offering Recordings, Get Physical, MoBlack and Madorasindahouse. Gumz has also seen his music supported by the likes of Black Coffee, Shimza, Floyd Lavine, Pablo Fierro and Enoo Napa.
2020 has been a big year for Gumz, having caught the attention of the industry with a big release in the form of Mtana Ka ma which was a collaborative effort with the Queens boys collet, It all seems to be coming together for this future heavy weight of African dance music as he launches his own record label at the end of September 2020 titled Gumz Muzic and featured on its first Ep the likes of Candy Man aswell as redbull academy alumni Cornelius SA.
It's an exciting time for the artist as we begin to see him come into his own and contribute to the African sounds with his own style of composition.
It upwards and onwards for Gumz
