Out of the big smoke of Johannesburg comes a young, creative and passionate DJ. Headphase has developed and refined a sound which he shares throughout South Africa’s club, festival and radio circuit.

Entering the electronic music scene as a young DJ has its challenges. With a convergence of sounds from all corners of the globe and music tending towards somewhat of a popularity contest, it is by no means easy to push a sound which strays from normality.

Influenced by the UK Garage movement, 90’s House Revival and the world of underground electronic music, Headphase has developed a sound which goes against the grain in a surprisingly pleasant way, that is guaranteed to make you move. Priding himself on underground music and cutting edge sounds, be sure to arrive with an open mind to hear something new and exciting.

2011 saw Headphase explode onto the club scene in Cape Town with his unique style and energetic performance, sharing the stage with many of SA’s choice electronic acts such as Haezer, Sibot, Das Kapital, Pascal & Pearce, Niskerone, Goldfish, Dean Fuel, Bteam, Riot Squad and many more.
2012-2014 expanded this trend as Headphase explored and shared the sound that he endorses on the festival front at festivals such as Rocking The Daisies, Earthdance, Synergy, Rezonance, RAMfest and One World, as well as on the airwaves through 5FM, Assembly Radio, MuthaFM and UCT Radio.

2015 has seen Headphase move back to Johannesburg and grow and mature as a DJ as he continues to take all listeners on an open-minded exploration of his sound. He strives to bring something unique and inviting, no matter the environment or channel through which he may be heard.
