Hailing from the dusty streets of Mitchell’s Plain in the heart of the notorious Cape Flats, NISKERONE’s energetic and innovative style of mixing has entertained crowds at festivals and on dance floors around the world. Recently voted into South Africa’s DJing elite by DJ Mag, NISKERONE needs no introduction in the world of Drum & Bass.
The man behind ‘It Came From The Jungle’, NISKERONE started this weekly residency at Fiction DJ Bar in May 2006 after identifying a need in Cape Town for a Drum & Bass night that catered to the lighter side of the genre. Aside from pleasing hundreds of revelers each week, it also secured him slots alongside industry leaders such as Pendulum, Busta Rhymes, The Bloody Beetroots, DJ Fresh (UK), Dieselboy, Sigma, Cutline, and many more.
In 2010, NISKERONE took his energetic live sets to the crowds of Europe where he performed in Belgium, Holland, Germany and Sweden, as well as at Spain’s renowned 40 000 strong Monegros Desert Festival.
Locally, NISKERONE has received headline status at nearly every major festival including Rocking The Daisies, Earthdance, Synergy, Rezonance and RAMFest in 2010, and OppiKoppi, Earthdance, Synergy, Rezonance and RAMFest in 2011.

Besides tearing up dance floors in clubs across South Africa on a weekly basis and creating mayhem on festival stages, It Came From The Jungle relaunched in April and returned for the sixth year to its legendary weekly slot at Fiction in Cape Town.
