A Moment With… Jason Le Roux

Every Saturday night Hidden Culture’s Jason Le Roux has EDM heads glued to ZiFM as he dishes out system bending tunes.

Between running Hidden Culture, Zimbabwe’s leading event management company for  dance music event concepts since 2005 (creating events like Neverland Zimbabwe &  Sushi Sundays), hosting a weekly radio show which has thousands of loyal followers  from across the world tuning in, studio sessions, weekly podcasts and an intense  booking schedule it’s no wonder why Jason Le Roux has become Zimbabwe’s  Electronic Music poster boy!

He has also performed in many electronic fusion bands and is a musician/producer in his own right.

By the way, did we mention he hates liquorice?
