DJ Theo Biography - Recordbox Obsessions - United Kingdom

Born and raised on the diverse streets of Cape Town, South Africa, DJ Theo, started his musical journey at a very young age growing up in a family of musicians. By the age of 14 he was capable of playing multiple instruments and developed a passion for the finer art of sound after a visit to the recording studio.

The Meet

It was at this moment when DJ Theo knew he wanted to work in the music industry, after spending the next two years studying and working alongside very talented sound engineers he quickly excelled and it gave him a strong foundation for the next part of his plan.

The Debut

In 1987 his break came when DJ Theo was part of a sound engineering crew at an event where the opening set deejay was a no show, spotting the opportunity he stepped up to the plate and needless to say put on such a brilliant performance that he was offered his first residency.

The Music

After completing his studies in sound & lighting engineering he decided to dedicate his time to his DJ career and the club scene. Armed with the knowledge of the sound & lighting industry he soon gained the respect of a DJ that delivered a technically flawless set and had the advantage of getting the best out of any club sound system by utilising his engineering experience. Going on to proving himself in the industry covering every music genre on the dance scene, his experience, skill and versatility put him in the deejay line-up of most top clubs in SA. DJ Theo was selected as the supporting deejay for the 24 Seven and the Shaggy worldwide tour in South Africa. Adding to his profile he has performed at the legendary events such as, The Camel Experience, Fanta Phatt Jam and E TV’s Backstage Party’s.
