Growing up in the Cape Town township of Guguletu, Siphe was obsessed with computers, games and toys from a young age.
By the time he turned 18 he was hooked and began to learn music theory from a friend. Siphe believes that lack of interest in learning music theory by most aspiring artists is one of the primary reasons for failure and says, “there are so many artists obsessed with being famous and trying to get into music for the wrong reasons. You have to be prepared to put in the hours and it can be an isolated and lonely journey while you are trying to perfect your craft”.
He doesn’t like being called a DJ and plays mostly his own material, often assembling tracks on the fly to create a blend of modern african house and electronica that has audiences in awe. He is the only artist from the Cape Town townships who performs with controllers and keyboards.
No stranger to the challenges of poverty, Siphe is all too familiar with the struggles of many young township people and sees music as his way out. It is his tireless passion and commitment to his craft that sealed his deal with us and helped confirm his selection to play a Bridges for Music slot at Tomorrowland In Belgium.
