The Boogieman aka (Farrell Adams)
Having been the front man of a band called “Nine” in the mid-nineties, and later “The Firing Squad” and “Golliwog”, has allowed Farrell to utilise his performance skills during his Boogieman sets.
“If you don’t look like you’re digging your own tunes when you’re playing, how can you expect other people to dig it?” says Adams. “It’s all about the energy you put out that infects your dance floor.”
Having been involved in a passionate love affair with music since his first breath, he is a consummate collector and self-proclaimed musicologist. Dj’ing has provided him with the perfect platform to indulge both his love for music, and for making people dance.
With roots deeply entrenched in funk and soul and jazz, he is constantly exploring and discovering newer and exciting versions of these genres, taking his audience to new levels of entertainment. A musical schizophrenic, his sets are a journey, full of surprises. Anything can happen, so an open mind is a recommended accessory.
He seamlessly transcends genres without regard for the age of the tune.
“A good tune is a good tune regardless of how old, or how well known it is. Old skool, nu skool…f*#k skool! School’s out!” The only valid criterion is that it makes people dance and that it’s honest.
He has toured extensively playing numerous clubs and festivals that has allowed him to hone his technical skills and his ability to read his audience, providing the right flavour for the circumstances.
It was while touring, that he found himself playing in Bloemfontein, at a club called “Die Mystic Boer”. It was here in the mid nought-ies that he made the acquaintance of his accomplice, “Disko D”.
Their love of electronic dance music was the basis for their alliance. When Disko move to Boogie’s home town of Cape Town, the alliance was strengthened when he asked Boogie to remix a tune which was the theme for the Cape Town Cannabis March, at which they both performed to approximately 50 000 people and which he helped co-ordinate.
Disko D (aka Dion du Toit)
Hailing from Ficksburg, it was while studying in Bloemfontein that he discovered and fell in love with break beats, or breaks, for those more personally acquainted with the genre. A romance that would change the course of his life.
It was on the dance floor of “Die Mystic” that he cut his teeth. A residency there led to him promoting events, and eventually leading to a stint in Jozi where he made connections that would lead to him promoting high profile events, and later to leave the borders of his homeland and ply his trade on foreign soil.
Deon in his career has been very instrumental as partner to many Global events and has hosted and toured on several occasions with Top Rankings DJ’s from all over the world, plus being a prominent figure in high profile events across South Africa. He Designed Events ranging from Corporate to Pvt and Festival. Day to Day Marketing and Management of planned events production.

Approached by several institutions across South Africa to host or set up events for them, e.g. PACOFS and SoulCandi:
Managed my own DJ School called Diskotek Music Institute. I focussed on teaching the underprivileged and even succeeded in securing a record contract for one of my students. • I was also approached by USAID and together we set up a community centre in Maputo, Lesotho, teaching the community and youth how to grow and maintain organic gardens, as well as basic sound engineering.
Big, phat dirty, bouncy breaks is Disko D’s forte, delivered with great dexterity and a dangerously high levels of energy. It’s contagious and, if you’re not, at least, nodding your head by tune two, then you probably reside under six feet of dirt, and no longer have pulse.
