Born and raised in the vibrant music hub which is Johannesburg, South Africa.” Farai Thondhlana”, also known as “Kryptic”, has always been surrounded by rhythm and percussive elements. Having been involved with music since the age of 6, he knew that the music route would always be the path in which he would follow.
At the age of 16, he developed a love affair with deep house & techno which made him want to produce. This lead to his first release “Flashback” a year later which had attracted the eye of the Cape Town based label, Mudpie Records. The same year he then followed up with a remix of “In a Club” by Illuzionize.
In the quest to discover his own sound, Kryptic took 2 years off of music. During this time he had further developed his understanding of music and production with guidance from Cape Town based producer, “Ryan Murgatroyd”. Inspired by him and the success of fellow Africans on the international stage, Kryptic relocated to “Birmingham, United Kingdom” to study Music Technology and following the lengthy hiatus, he returned to the music scene with his second original release “Siza” in February 2019. This was the reinvention of Kryptic as an Afro House artist. His resurgent track gained mass attraction abroad which lead to it being supported by “Marco Amoazoo, Labor Musik, Lunar Plane” and more.
Kryptic always looks to produce tracks with fun-filled grooves that inspire movement and bridge the gap between music and emotion. Plenty of projects are already underway including a remix for Italian techno producer, Alessandro Cocco, in conjunction with Obscuro Records in Leeds. With his third release “Sahara” having just been released on “Deep House SA”, expect nothing but progressions from the 19 year old producer.
