“Everything he [Protoculture] touches turns to musical gold” - Armin van Buuren, A State of Trance

Only a few South African producers enjoy the success that DJ and producer Nate Raubenheimer, better known to most as Protoculture, has had over the last 12 years. Hailed by many distinguished peers as his home country’s largest dance music export, he has left his mark on the international dance scene with his trademark blend of melodic and emotionally charged compositions and sets.

Sucked into the art of music production at a young age, Nate made the leap to pursue a music career professionally after completing his studies in audio engineering at age 20. Immediately taking the international psy-trance scene by storm, his international debut performance came at the United Kingdom’s famed Glastonbury Festival. With the release of his first album “Refractions” and follow up “Circadians”, a slew of international performances ensued, seeing Nate travel to all corners of the globe. From London to Tokyo, Sao Paulo to Moscow, Protoculture is a staple at psy-trance festivals around the globe, most notably at Glade, Universo Parallello, Earthcore Global Carnival, and Ozora.
