Euphonik’s understanding and maturity of music came at an early age. Born in Mpumalanga, South Africa, his passion for music was ignited by artists his father listened to – the likes of The Spinners, Marvin Gaye, Stimela and Hugh Masekela. His relationship with music began when he started playing at friends’ birthday parties in his early teens. He went from playing at every birthday party in Benoni to gaining residency in Midrand club, Who Zoo, whilst perfecting his mixing and producing techniques. Euphonik first started remixing in 2003 and gained recognition in 2004 when he and South African DJ, DJ Kent joined forces and produced an album together, Kentphonik. It wasn’t long before he started doing mixes on regional radio station, YFM, later being offered his own show on national radio station, 5FM. Euphonik was signed by record label, Soul Candi in 2006 and landed a highly coveted job doing A&R for the record label.
Euphonik is undoubtedly one of the most successful artists in South Africa with having a gig almost every night of the week across all nine provinces. Euphonik’s club standing has reached dizzying heights as he continues to build his empire. His prime time weekend radio show on 5FM (My House airs Sundays 19:00-22:00), regular mixes on The Roger Goode show and ‘The Ultimix @ Six’, provide him with the ideal platform for reaching music lovers throughout the country.
Euphonik has been nominated for the South African Music Awards as well as the MetroFM Awards. In 2014 he won the Metro FM award for Best Compilation Album for his album, For The Love of House Volume 5. His name has been included in The Mail & Guardian’s 300 Young South Africans list (a comprehensive and reputable list of people that will shape and define their industries for decades to come). He has released five albums to date in the; For the Love of House series: Vol. 1, Politics of Dance, Special Edition, Total Blackout and Vol. 5; and has featured extensively on electro and house compilations. A man passionate about investing in the next generation of DJ’s, Euphonik also hosts a highly successful annual workshop for aspiring DJs called DJ101.
Representing South Africa on international soil is what Euphonik does best. From Dubai to Sydney, Cape Town to Miami, London to Toronto and New York City to Johannesburg, he has played at some of the biggest parties and festivals in the world. He’s served on the panel for the electronic music industry’s premier annual conference, The Miami Winter Conference; and was one of the main artists at the South African Ultra Fest in 2014. Absorbing new and hot music trends abroad, transforming it into his own and bringing it back to SA is something Euphonik is passionate about. He has opened for some of the biggest names in the electro music industry including Hardwell, Tiësto, Swedish House Mafia, Avicii, Afrojack, Skrillex, Steve Aoki, Nicky Romero and Martin Garrix. All of this by the age of 30!
With over a decade of experience in broadcasting, producing and DJing, Euphonik is at the heart of the South African music industry. With many years of experience in the industry behind his name he was asked to be a permanent judge on a national television dance show, Step Up or Step Out in 2013 showcasing his knowledge and passion for entertainment. Euphonik also recently founded record label, euNITE, which he intends using as a platform to promote up and coming artists.
Euphonik considers himself a “DJpreneur” – a DJ first, an entrepreneur second. Music aside, he has established himself as a successful businessman. He invests in property, has designed two pairs of unique Euphonik Superga sneakers, produces Euphonik Skopa snacks, runs a nightclub in Sandton and recently adding to his portfolio of business ventures, has opened a clothing store in Braamfontein with DJ Kent called Debut. Euphonik’s mantra is “do what you love and love what you do”. With international demand for Euphonik rapidly accelerating, the world truly is becoming his playground. Coming from a small town in Mpumalanga, he has become an inspiration for all.
Euphonik met highly talented and sought after South African DJ, DJ Fresh in 2006. Since then they have become one of the hottest musically talented duos in the country. The duo decided to join forces and form F.eU (Fresh & Euphonik) in 2009 changing the face of the DJ industry in South Africa. From their own national radio show on 5FM – Power Nite of Dance – to their own TV show, Club Culture, on national broadcaster SABC 1 and five albums later, F.eU’s stardom continues to rise. Known across the country for their world-class gigs, F.eU are also committed to taking South African sounds to the rest of the world, with their annual ‘SA Miami Invasion’ tour now in its fifth year. They produced one of the biggest summer tracks of 2013 ‘Cool and Deadly’ featuring Nyanda, which rose to number one on charts across the country and has close to 75K hits on Youtube.
