Nightglows is two men band (duo) hailing from the eastern part of South Africa, a part synonymous with the fabled NELSON MANDELA. The two young stars formed the group back in 2008, after meeting through a mutual friend. They surely never anticipated being signed by some of the most respected labels after just 19 months, Nightglows (Luyolo "Smash" Makalima and Yibanathi "Ice" Tsolekile) picked the name because they had a mutual fascination with a "DJ Fudge" track by the same name, they also picked the name because it represented the very trait that makes them a formidable whole, they make each other glow. They complete each other some would say, what one lacks the other has in abundance. They have a non-genre specific "Modus Operandi", they make anything that’s going strike chord with an audience. Their tracks have attracted the attention of an international labels "Seed Recordings(new York), Big-mamas-house-Records(germany),Vialocal recordings(Italy)". Luyolo Leo "Smash" Makalima is a computer science student at a local University "Walter Sisulu University", Yibanathi "Ice" Tsolekile is a third year drop out in international relations at the University of Port Elizabeth. Their tracks range from: Deep house, Deep tech house, Jacking House, Tribal house, Techno, Funky House, Progressive House, even the embryonic "Tribal tech" style.
