An unwavering love of the 4/4 beat has meant losing a great deal of sleep. Being a DJ & music producer definitely hasn’t helped either but that’s no bad thing.

Born and raised in Cape Town (South Africa) many a night was spent soaking up the vast array of electronic beats & tempos, especially as a hedonistic club kid in the mid 90’s when big raves & record stores ruled the roost. Exposed to a variety of house flavours that permeated the sweltering mother city this eventually led to a set of not-quite-Technics turntables.

The DJ booth has always felt comfortable – from red-eye flights and breezy beach bars to concrete club confines.
Sixteen years behind the decks has allowed opportunities to gig in London, Amsterdam (ADE), Prague, France, Poland, Switzerland and South Africa – with past residencies at Relish Bar & the Underground Mix Sessions on bustling Long Street, Cape Town.

The desire to make records came from playing them and seeing the effect they had on people.
Over time a sound has transposed through my music and found a home with labels like Large Music, i! Records, Street King, Tango & many more.
To complete the cycle and as an avenue to promote other like-minded artists, I have created & run Oh So Coy Recordings along with new subsidiary Rogue Decibels
