Whether you are hanging out with friends having a braai, or at home with the family relaxing, or recovering on a Sunday morning after a night out, you certainly are in for a treat this weekend. Due to the previous popularity of the Magic Saturday School Disco Party Mix, Magic828 launches the Saturday School Disco Party Mix ‘On Demand’ this Saturday 30 July, featuring DJ Ashton Abels.

Born in the mother city, Cape Town, his roots are from Bonteheuwel. Back in 1998 Ashton Abels flipped the script and earned a spot on on-campus community radio (UCT RADIO 104.5fm) playing radio slots around the clock from the graveyard to afternoon drive which got him into his own Saturday afternoon dance radio show which gave many local artists and deejays in and around Cape Town a platform.

Ashton is a regular DJ on the popular Good Hope FM Saturdays, 5fm popular vinyl mix on Sunday nights, and Metro FM monthly urban beat vinyl mix, entertaining listeners with world-class mixes. He’s also a resident DJ at Strolla in Cape Town – a stylish sundowner spot, ideally located on Sea Point’s wind-free Platinum Mile and Manga on Mouille Point setting the mood with an ocean breeze. Jamming to the corporate sundowners at Slug and Lettuce Century City on Fridays. Back to the soul vibes at The Protea Fire and Ice Hotel by Marriott Cape Town.

DJ Ashton Abels is a naturally gifted DJ and producer. The Capetonian is a music scholar who established himself as one of the leaders in the South African music industry. His passion for music traces back to when he was only 7 years old experimenting with cassette players and turntables and earned him his reputation.

In order to grow the music community and promote all genres of music, Magic828 is inviting seasoned DJ’s to share their music mixes so digital listeners can start experiencing a variety of music genres, which will allow us to better serve our existing audience, and attract new audiences online. We would like to express our gratitude to DJ Ashton Abels for his generous contribution.

Don’t miss out! Get your dancing shoes on, and be sure to catch DJ Ashton Abels School Disco mix on Saturday evening anytime from 5pm on the Magic828 App, website or Facebook page. Or catch the mix here below:
