Born and raised on the diverse streets of Cape Town, South Africa, DJ Theo, started his musical journey at a very young age growing up in a family of musicians. By the age of 14 he was capable of playing multiple instruments and developed a passion for the finer art of sound after a visit to the recording studio. It was at this moment when DJ Theo knew he wanted to work in the music industry, after spending the next two years studying and working alongside very talented sound engineers he quickly excelled and it gave him a strong foundation for the next part of his plan. In 1987 his break came when he was part of a sound engineering crew at an event where the opening set dj was a no show, spotting the opportunity he stepped up to the plate and needless to say put on such a brilliant performance that he was offered his first residency.
After completing his studies in sound & lighting engineering he decided to dedicate his time to his DJ career and the club scene. Armed with the knowledge of the sound & lighting industry he soon gained the respect of a DJ that delivered a technically flawless set and the advantage of getting the best out of any club sound system by utilising his engineering experience. Going on to proving himself in the industry covering every music genre on the dance scene, his experience, skill and versatility put him in the dj line-up of most top clubs in SA. He has over the years been selected as a supporting DJ for major events including the 24 Seven – SA Tour in 1993 and the Shaggy – SA Tour in 1993. Adding to his profile he has performed at the legendary events such as, The Camel Experience, Fanta Phatt Jam and E TV’s Backstage Party’s.
He then went on to opening his own venue Club Rumours and was also the man behind the success of club Enigma. He was regularly booked for productions, including, Dockside Events, Back2Back and the Soundscape Beach Party’s. Let’s just say that he has featured in most of the top clubs in Cape Town. Going onto playing on Cape Town’s top radio stations, GoodHope FM and Radio 5FM he still remained on the club scene. With many years of experience he soon earned the reputation and respect of being a DJ that could be booked for any genre venue and he would deliver top results with ease and style. After completing his 4 year residency at Vacca Matta SA ( Cape Town ) and a respectful 21 year service to the club scene in Cape Town, he immigrated to the United Kingdom.
DJ Theo, together with his wife, DJ Ceejay co-founded the prestigious DJ Agency PRO DJ, first doing all the events for Queen Ethelburga’s and doing all the summer parties for Stafford House & Village Camps (Switzerland). PRO DJ was then taken online during the global pandemic in 2020 and the agency connected deejays from around the world and brought them together to one platform to bring you the best of HOUSE music. In the beginning of 2022 it was time for DJ Theo to put his own stamp on his music and created RECORDBOX OBSESSIONS, which brings you the best of Nu Disco, Funky House, Deep House, Classic House, Bass & Tech House, live streaming every second Saturday. On the alternative Saturday’s he can be found as a guest on DJ Ceejay’s BEATZ IN MOTION. DJ Theo has also taken to the studio to focus on producing Studio Quality DJ Mix Releases and House Music Production, this is where his passion really lies so expect some great content from him over the next few years.
