"It all came at a time we were all in love with the music, then the passion turned into an addiction, and the addiction gave birth to an obsession; before we knew it, we had a revolution" - Shane Mfulwane

Ladies and gentlemen, I present you Javaman; The Story - My Music, My Journey

Ayanda Jabulani Hleza a.k.a Javaman was born and raised in Soweto in the 90’s, he grew up listening to kwaito and hip hop just like any other kid from the hood, it was then in 1998 when the beat got his soul. As time went on, he got motivated and inspired by the sounds of legends like (Vinny Da Vincy, DJ Christos, DJ Fresh, Louie Vega and Larry Heard). The following year ‘1999’ he started collecting house music records then that turned into an addiction.

When he, Javaman, went to high school in 2004, he met couple of guys who had same passion for music, and that’s how it all started. Javaman together with his friends started deejaying at parties around the township. With the sweat of musicianship, his passion for house music grew even bigger in a way that it made him realize that he can do more than just being a deejay, Javaman passion for music production was ignited in 2007 as he taught himself FL Studios (Music Production Software) along realizing the power on making a song.

Upon completing matric, He went to Soul Candi Institution of Music in 2009 to study more of music production. He then met Saxture at Soul Candi and the meeting turned into an abundant music journey. He later on collaborated with hood friends: Sibusiso Malevu (RealPurple Deep) and Thamisanqa Ndhlovu (Dr Ada T) and together they formed a group called Culture N Soul and released hits like “Revelations feat. Mthandazo and Voices” under 659 records.
