Representing Carolina, Mpumalanga, China Charmeleon is serving us the #LunchTymMix today, 15 Jan 2021 at 12 pm.
China Charmleon (real name Siphamandla Innocent) He has risen slowly as a Charmeleon from the local ranks of being resident DJ locally at his home town in Carolina in Mpumalanga Province. He had drawn inspiration from all kinds of genres especially drew more inspiration on mixing house music on one of the Best DJs in S A and across the country namely DJ Kent.
China Charmleon began his career as Dj in 2009 whilst studying to become a Civil engineer at Zinikeleni Secondary School, He became part of a Friction Boys Crew in 2010 with 3 other Djs, but left the group in 2011 to pursue his solo career. He was introduced to music production by Dj Mlindos & Dj Bronto. Needless to say, that was the beginning of a new revolution led by this young talented record producer. In 2013 China Charmeleon produced an Ep called ‘Season” which was voted by Traxsource.com as one of the top 20 Deep House EP of the year, that when he caught the ear of the legendary Vinny Da Vinci.
In 2018 China Charmeleon was about to quit his music career then he met Ta Ice the guy who asked him not to quit. “Ta Ice” was one of the producers China Charmeleon looked up to, after the release of “The Animal’ under Get Load owned by Ta Ice, he caught the ear of the legendary Dj Kent And Kid Fonque who was the link between China Charmeleon and the Radio presenter Kid Fonque, who then became China Charmeleon’s mentor. China Charmeleon’s song “Somewhere In Tokyo” Finally found its way to light in 2019 when it was released on Kid Fonque’s Stay True Sounds Music label, and reached global success.
In 2020 China Charmeleon continued dropping music under Stay True Sounds, which featured three EPs and two albums. The Eps are as follows (Midnight Rain, Tell Me & Get Ready). The two albums released are as follows (Colours and My Father’s Records). China Charmeleon went on to produce more projects. These included a remix for Atjazz’s Virus EP, an EP with U UMgomezulu titled Until We Meet Again and he also worked with Chymamusique on the Hold On EP where he made a remix.
2020 was by far the busiest year for China Charmeleon but this hard-working music producer did not stop there. Presently in the year 2021, he got his hugely awaited call up to feature on Channel O’s Lockdown House Party. But wait that’s not all, Taz Golden Child announced that China Charmeleon will be a resident DJ on EldosFM (87.6 FM) every Saturday from 23:00 – 00:00. China Charmeleon is indeed an uncut diamond and he continues showing his class with the amount of work he puts into his work. More is still to come from this young fellow who stems all the way from Carolina in Mpumalanga.
