Music have always been one of Goose’s biggest passions. His inspiration to become a DJ back in 1993, was when he started going to clubs and was blown away by way the djs put the tunes together. He loved the fact that the DJ controlled all the energy at the parties. When 1999 came around, listening to other djs spinning tunes wasn’t enough any more and so he went out and got 2 turntables, a mixer and a couple of 12” vinyl…. and well, the rest is history. It took about 1 year before he was confident enough to started playing a good set at private house parties.
When he started of playing, his style was split between underground sounds and the happy sounds of uplifting trance. At that time Global Underground & Renaissance labels was big and he absolutely loved all the music that come out of those stables. In the early 2000’s the underground sounds wasn’t a very popular sound with the clubs in South Africa and it was difficult to secure gigs. Therefore he added Uplifting / Vocal Trance to his mixing to try and secure gigs in the clubs.
He managed to play a couple of at the biggest clubs in Johannesburg in South Africa, namely….
ESP (End Street), Submission, Club Miami, Sunnyside Up, Trilogy, DJ Lounge and many more….
In 2008 he joined the AVAILABLE crew because of their way for forward thinking. And that’s to educate the punters about all the different genres out there.
We held a couple of events at different venues around the Johannesburg area to reasonable success.
Till now he has transformed his genres from Deep House to PsyTrance with anything progressive in between.
He also held a couple of events in JHB with his best friend Dj Bratt, namely Kaleidoscope & EX!T. They are also known as “The Global Brothers”.
Lately he has joined up with Pretoria TRANCE group and looking to grow the following within the Pretoria, South Africa area. Please click through to our page and read what they are all about and want to achieve….
