Lection Durgro as known, Real name Sanele Mkhize

born in the South of Durban a township Kwa-

Makhutha. He was exposed to this music at a very

young age of about 11 where his brothers used to

listen to Radio stations which played the music and

recorded the shows, it grew on him when his Older brother’s friend started collecting music on Cd’s

and would play it at Lection’s house, It did

not stop there the friend of the brother got into

spinning decks with one of the townships respected

dj’s and started now collecting records and as lection

was exposed to this the understanding of this music was slowly building. Years after while still a

house head in 2005 his brother brother

(Phumlani) purchased a PC for them which all they

knew was to play around with the Virtual Dj

software and play music. The use of this software

pushed the Dj love further and in late 2005 he introduced himself at his high school as a dj where

he was able to get himself small disco gigs to

entertain students (the youngest Dj in the school and

events organizer).

The Spinning of the screen was now not enough in

2006 his brother introduced him to a late friend of his which had a set of turntables where they could

spin real records. In a month the friend passed

on which got them back to screens of the PC, by luck

the sister of the late friend was a girlfriend of

his other older brother ow then introduced them to

her and she allowed them to come now and then for a spin.With this in the table Lection started to

collect his own records. At the moment Lection

was also selected as a member of the Entertainment

committee in high school which allowed him to

pull more gigs for them at his School. The relationship

that they had built with his brothers friend Rocalex led them to gathering also small gigs and

house parties for their friends. While still

collecting these Lection Met DjNtukza who was one

respected deep house dj that was working at a

record shop where Ntukza became like a mentor for

Lection providing him with mixes to listen and tips on music, spinning decks and how the industry

works. Later in the year 2007 Ntokzin (His

brother) purchased turntable for them which they

could now do the spinning at their bedroom as this

was the best thing to ever happen to him, he was

introduced to Phephe another extremely deep underground dj by Ntukza who they had shared the

same ideas and vision. In

2008 Lection Durgro attended a dj competition that

was hosted by a record shop that Ntukza

worked on although he was eliminated early in it he

was one to play the most different deep house tunes out of all, this performance landed him to one

of the Durban radio stations Durban Youth

Radio with DjVumar as a host where he also played

something new to people and this landed him a

lot of contacts and fans around the area. More

township gigs started and they had been doing their own with Rocalex

Realizing time has come and that Him, Rocalex and

Phephe had the same vision he approached

them into starting a company with him Dursoul Music.

As they gathered ideas and researching

Lection was introduced into the whorl of Sound Engineering which led him into Relocating to

Johannesburg to study it in 2010 which also was the

year that they officially registered the

Company. His first ever gig in the city of

Johannesburg was on a sunday session where he

performed the best of his collection and as he was also the youngest there it was a shock to

everyone “Dynamite come in small packages” said

the event organizer Lerato. after this day more

dj’s invited him to their events and it has never

stopped. Having a qualification in Sound

Engineering, Spinning talent and the love of music has led Lection to where he is today and still

grows in making his name in the world of House

Music.
