Euphonik

DJ

Themba Nkosi's stage name means a "pleasant sound�. The self-taught DJ began his love affair with the turntables at the age of 14, sneaking into clubs to catch DJ's Fresh and Mbuso. Since then he has warmed up the stage for international artists such as Missy Elliot and Blu Cantrell. One of the many career highlights for the House DJ was his 2006 nomination for Best Club DJ at the Metro FM Awards. For The Love of House was released last April � it was Euphonik's first solo project as a producer. Within the first month of its release it sold 15 000 units and has now achieved gold status, selling more than 20 000 copies. Euphonik can be heard on 5fm on Sundays between 7pm and 10pm with his dance show My House. "The show gives me the opportunity to share music, thoughts and opinions on issues that affect young people in South Africa,� he says. Apart from being a DJ and producing, Euphonik also owns Euphonik Productions, a marketing events company. � Karabo Keepile
