In the 90s growing up in a family full of music lovers, Sand Isle got exposed to various genres of music, ranging from Jazz, Ballads to R&B and Pop etc., But it is the “90s Disco House, Kwaito , late 90s Deep House and Hip Hop” that Sandile Masebe recalls as the first and probably the earliest shaping musical experiences.
