The Commercial Hippies started their musical history together DJing breakbeat at various parties in and around Cape Town South Africa.
After a couple years of DJing the 2 decided to try their hand at producing and soon after the concept of The Commercial Hippies was born.
Both Anton and Gareth have been involved in music since a young age and between them have formal training in guitar, percussion, piano and sound engineering.
Their first release “Where dreams come from” on Nano Records received a great response from trance lovers the world round and instantly caught the attention of many a discerning psy-trance ear.
Since these early days TCH have grown from strength to strength and have released a number of extremely well received tracks such as “Dr.Freakenstein”, “One Step”and “When the shit hits the fan” to name a few.
After being in the studio for the better half of 2005 and the early months of 2006 they finally released their intricately detailed debut album “If you cant stand the heat, get out of the chai room” on Nano Records and have been performing on the world stage ever since.
