Making the cut as one of South Africa’s top 30 dj’s in the official DJ Mag poll , Hyphen has been at the heart of the Drum n Bass uprising in our fine Republic of South Africa, dosing the South African D&B congregation for years. Every strain of venomous beat that tickles his fancy is slotted into the sets that he spins at more parties and festivals than your blackouts would allow you to remember.
The D&B faithful have grown to know and trust this selekta who’s been hosting The Sublime Drum & Bass Show on Bush Radio 89.5fm since 2002, which continues to be the benchmark for Drum n Bass culture on the airwaves in SA today. He has managed to rub shoulders with the likes of Counterstrike, Dieselboy, Pendulum, Break, Dillinja, Grooverider, Sigma, Camo & Krooked , Logistics , Netsky , Far Too Loud , Misanthrop and other such stalwarts of the scene.
Now held in high regard for his spine-bending D&B and mixed genre sets alike, Hyphen is more than just a DJ. He’s making his own material, having released his first vinyl offering “Visions” alongside SFR on the world-renowned European label Zombie Recordings, a claim that not many a Saffer producer can make. You can also find his track “Tribes” on the African Dope compilation ‘Cape Of Good Dope 2’, and you can feel free to scream when you watch him play.
