DJ Redwood Bio
Redwood stated DJing in 1997 playing dance music at house parties on the classic vinyl turntables.
He turned professional in 1999 when he got is first public paid resident weekly slot at a bar/nightclub called Babushka in the London West End playing dance music.
He then returned to South Africa after 2 years and found regular DJ gigs at the legendary 206, Carfax and Reality night clubs, and in the process building his name locally especially in the Dance and Hip Hop cultures becoming the countries top scratch DJ AND beatboxer.
He went on to become South African DJ Champion 4 years in a row (2003/4/6/7) and in 2007 represented South Africa at the DMC World DJ Championships. He placed 13 out of a possible 22 of the worlds best.
Collaborations include: Dj for Tamara Dey’s (supported Enrique Iglesias at 3 events on his tour of South Africa) and being the DJ for the Rap-Metal band Pestroy. DJing has also taken Redwood around the world performing in London (were it started), Amsterdam, Cape Verde Islands, Japan and the USA.
Since then he has evolved his style to accommodate for every genre, from old classics from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s 80’s 90’s 2000’s to the more modern rock and electronic dance music. This musical versatility enabled DJ Redwood to perform for countless private functions (such as birthdays 21st’s, 30th’s, 40th’s etc and weddings) and corporate yearend and promotional functions for Coke, MNET, MTV Base, Playboy, Ford Ka launch, Metro FM Awards and Joe Public advertising agency to name a few. Redwood has performed on 5fm, UJfm and YFm radio stations and the massive H20 parties on numerous occasions. He also played music for a 30000 strong audience at the FIFA World Cup 2010 Fan Park in Cape-Town, introducing the Semi-final match between the Netherlands and Uruguay.
Since October 2010, Redwood has been and still performs at his current weekly event at ‘The Office Cocktail Bar’ in Greenside Johannesburg, playing 5-hour DJ sets ranging across all musical styles. This has kept him busy between the other events.
Keeping up with the new hits on a weekly basis, having thousands of songs on hand and 19 years of DJing experience, there is no audience that this DJ can’t satisfy.
