Bradley “DJ Bionic” Williams has done so much for South African hip hop. Personally, he’s given me some big opportunities and some hard-to-learn lessons.

So when we took i(m)bali from a podcast to a live event (thanks J&B Hive!), it was obvious that Bionic had to be the first guest.

The DJ/manager/music exec/restaurateur did not disappoint. From Le Club to Black August to Motif Records to the Artivist and more, Bionic let us into the trials and triumphs that made him who he is.

I know you’ll enjoy this i(m)bali!
