I have always played on the progressive tougher side of the dance music sound, adapting genres to the trends and needs of the dance floor/ listenership, dropping anything from House to Breaks, Techno to Electro, Progressive to Hard Dance, Uplifting and Hard Trance, Psy Progressive Trance and anything that rocks the flow. I don’t consider myself an artist that plays one, two or even three styles; I like to amalgamate different types of music and elements of sound to tweak inspiration and excitement in the people who are listening.
My professional DJ career has spanned over almost 3 decades and I have truly loved every second. I have performed across the world, started in the London and worked my way across Europe cutting my teeth doing 3 seasons in Ibiza and moving through Amsterdam, France and landing my first radio show in Costa Del Sol, Spain. There I trained and learnt skills in the live studio presenting and broadcast to a listenership of 2.7 Million. From there I did a 3-year rotation touring between UK, Canada, Ibiza and South Africa before landing and making Cape Town my home.
I then worked my way through an evolving club scene with amazing opportunities being a resident DJ and performing at some of SA’s finest venues including; The Boiler Room, Rush, Spyce, Pure with the great honor of being a part of my own award winning nightclub, Unity. During this amazing period in my DJ career I performed with world class DJ’s and at many local and international events and festivals from the Synergy events, Vortex, Ministry of Sound, Mother Productions, Nukleuz and many more.
A few of my other hats in this business was running my beloved record store Rugged Vinyl that I co-owned with my brother and ran for 10 years during the dance music boom and won an award for best independent music store.
I am also a Music Producer and made and released over 30 tracks covering a range of dance music genres on various labels that have been released online for download on Beatport and audio productions that is in constant broadcast use.
While performing at this level, I was also focusing on my broadcast career and had shows on Good Hope FM with an award winning show “the Dance Frequency” a stint on 5FM and a weekend show on Heart FM. But my passion of broadcasting always pointed to Mutha FM, which I founded in 2002 and is SA’s first Internet radio station which has now evloved into a music lifestyle streaming media platform which I am very proud to be a part of with the rest of the Mutha FM family.
