Biography

Stones & Bones is an Afro-Rock House duo that blends pulsating Afro House grooves with a touch of Rock and Soul!  This unique and popular duo is on the border, right where the city meets the street.

Made up of Casper Steenkamp aka Casper J Stone (Sax, Lead Guitar, Backing Vox) and Kgothatso Mohlaka aka KG Bones (Lead Vox, keys, decks), this talented Pretoria born and bred music duo know how to hustle their fresh sound.  Their music is inspired by the collective sounds each heard growing up – from Rock ‘n Roll and Hip Hop to House and traditional South African township Funk. Since their formation in 2010, their music has spread like a wildfire across the plains of South Africa, Africa and the world.

Stones & Bones won the 2015 Jack Daniel’s Music Scouts competition selected by K.O, Culoe de Song, DJ Speedsta and Dream Team SA, to whom they are now signed. Their debut single, Ladymonsta, is currently on rotation on radio stations across the country such as YFM.

The duo uses a combination of House beats and live instruments to create food for the soul and fresh grooves for the dance floor. Since their formation, their music has spread like a wildfire across the plains of South Africa, Africa and the world.  Whether it’s a heart-warming love song that reaches deep into the soul or a pumping, high energy dance anthem that has the dance floor bouncing, there always remains a distinct “Stones & Bones” flavour. The music feels real and alive. The live instruments give it colour and realness that many producers search for their whole lives. 

What makes this group so unique is their ability to combine acoustic instruments with electronic beats and soulful vocals while still maintaining a groove that will rock the dance floor. Their combination of rhythm and melody has crowds dancing and singing like there is no tomorrow.  Hearing the band’s music is amazing but, seeing them perform live is even more mind-blowing. These 2 guys DJ, they sing, they dance, they play guitars, saxophones, keys, synthesizers and almost anything else that they can get their hands on. There is never a dull moment when these guys are on stage. 

The combination of KG Bones and CJ Stone is not one that you would expect to see in a House duo. Yet, it works like magic. They have a chemistry and musical understanding between them that transcends language and culture, something that you can only get through making music together for a long time.
