DJ Tempo learnt to mix alongside school mate Danny Wheeler before progressing to a warm-up residency at Movement opening for the likes of Bryan Gee, Marky, Ray Keith, Roni Size and Grooverider both at Bar Rumba and other illustrious venues like Fabric and Mass. He then spent two years working for Good Looking Records where he’d hassle the legendary LTJ Bukem for tunes and mixing tips.
In early 2005, he re-located to Cape Town where he spent a hazy few years rolling with the African Dope crew who persuaded him that you could still be a Junglist while listening to all the other amazing forms of Bass Music evolving in Cape Town. Since then he has played at Earthdance, Rocking the Daisies, It Came From The Jungle, Step Up, Cold Turkey, Pressure and many other nights along the way. However, he still likes to moan about not being able to play on Technics anywhere and that old school jungle is better than that new-fangled nonsense the kids are playing.
