By Sandra S. Borch
To even begin to describe her place in music, it must be noted that Berlin-based DJ Lakuti aka Lerato Khathi from the Johannesburg-township Soweto has been around long enough to have experienced the first wave of house records. She cried on the dance floor, when she heard Fingers Inc’s house anthem “Can You Feel It” for the first time. She has made a name for herself over the past decades, where she has proved herself as a hardworking woman at her own agency Uzuri and admirable selector with her always heartfelt dj-sets and mixes. Passive/Aggressive talked to DJ Lakuti in anticipation of her appearance at CTM festival this year – and about how she moved across the world, for music and love.
