Life and career
Kgaffe is from Mahikeng, a small town in South Africa. From early 2007 he started taking his music into the DAW – FL Studio to record songs while creating visual art as a hobby. In 2009 he began working with Mo'Molemi on his album "Rebel Without a Pause" where he produced the song Lefika-Town feat. Spikey of Lyv Records at 16years of age. He began doing visual work with AKA of the I.V League for the South African Hype Magazine Hip Hop Awards. He also worked on Dreamteam's Blow Up Mixtape, dance crew The Repertoires, Chez Ntemba, LiquidChefs SA with Very Special Saturday hosted by Fifi Costello and DJ Sliqe, visual artworks for the SAMA Award Winning DJ Sliqe, Kwesta, and Da King of African Rap album art for DaKAR II in 2016. He has also worked in advertising and marketing visuals for South African music events including GoodSundae for Benny Maverick & DJ Feel and Groove Afrika events.
He began to work in electronica, augmenting it with abstract art work. He aims to blend ambient textures and lounge-y keyboard melodies together over drums and percussion in a manner reminiscent of Flying Lotus and J Dilla, who IIndman lists as some of his musical influences.
Kgaffe would log on to Tumblr where he received pictures and used them as a source of inspiration, experimenting on the computer, and started editing using Microsoft Publisher and Microsoft Paint, designing posters and abstract art. In 2009 he began working in Adobe Photoshop, creating images with an urban-vintage tone in a dark futuristic environment. He used the internet to connect with more people, clients and sources of artistic inspiration. He is also inspired by visual artists such as Mark Ryden, James Turrell, Oleg Dou, Sara Golish, Vanessa Beecroft, Marcel Van Der Vlugt, Amy Judd and Ruud van Empel.
