DJ, producer, sound engineer & controller for the 947 Breakfast Xpress, Vin Deysel has been in the music industry since he could hold a pair of headphones and is still as crazy about music today as he was back then!

Growing up, Vin preferred to spend his free time helping out the family music and, as a teenager, DJ’ing at clubs and other events. After running the production department at a community radio station, he took on the role of head sound engineer for SAB’s Gig Rig, engineering for some of SA’s biggest bands.

From there he moved to 94.7 and soon began making mixes for the station. Vin also mixes and produces the Saturday Night Bloc Party on 94.7.

His 35+ albums have sold over 200 000 units in South Africa.

The Vin Mix was a permanent feature on the 94.7 Breakfast Xpress every Friday morning.

DJ John

Based: Cape Town

John Oosthuizen is the owner and director of Capricorn Music, and has been running the company for 22 years. His experience with all sorts of functions is unparalleled and he is uniquely suited to mood-style functions, including weddings, parties and corporate events.

He prides himself on delivering a service that is professional, using his knowledge and quiet confidence to ensure the client is completely happy with his services from start to finish.

He is completely open to requests and uses his experience to slot these in, where they are appropriate. He also loves to include songs that might not have been thought of and it is always great to see the guests appreciation and enjoyment of what has been included. Long lists that are created beforehand are great as a guide, but very rarely translate on the night. Every night has a life of its own. That is the fun of doing what he does, no two functions are the same.

His database is filled with music that is commercially accessible, which means that guests know the songs and feel included. The familiar favourites work well, which is why DJ’s choose them. There may be some songs that you don’t want to hear. That is okay too.

His goal is always to provide music that creates an atmosphere that enhances the mood. Choosing the right service providers goes a long way in easing your stress leading up to your function day.

DJ Vivian

DJ Vivian

Based: Durban

DJ Vivian a full time professional DJ specialising in weddings, corporates and parties. Unlike your specific genre DJ’s, he plays according to audience/guest profile at each function and bases his evenings playlist on the night as and when the function is happening and with general interaction with the crowd. With the diverse audiences/guests at functions today he caters for all age groups and all genres of music.

The trend he prefers to adopt is to mix music up to engage multiple ages/groups at the same time with common “appeal” tracks creating an atmosphere that draws all ages and groups together. As the evening progresses and audience/guest preferences may be established then a firmer trend can be followed for longer periods .
