More Music


Born in Durban, South Africa. Surrounded by music all his life, Ian’s love for DJing was born out of his shyness for dancing. From an early age, he learned that the only way people wouldn’t ask him to dance, was if he was the one playing the music.

With a passion for all styles of music, be it drum and bass, breaks, house or hip hop, Ian is a crowd pleaser. Having played small venues & festivals, he’s happiest in a club with 300 to 800 people in the room.

Ian is currently living in Shanghai, China, has recently taken a new residency at Zeal (On Bund 22) with his good friend & producer TAVO.

Zeal is an Open format Club that leans heavily towards big funky house, Most recently hosting, Hector Romero, Crazibiza & John PC.
