DJ, producer and sound engineer.
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 with the family music business and, as a teenager, DJing 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 on to 947 and soon began making mixes for Alex Jay’s ‘Six in the Mix’ show. Becoming a great hit, Vin’s mixes sparked the idea for a Saturday night party show – 94 Hits in Row, which was compiled and mixed by Vin, and broadcast on 947 and 94.5 Kfm in the Cape. The release of his first 94 Hits in a Row Volume 1 CD was a huge success, hitting gold in just a few weeks. due to the success of the 94 Hits in a row series another 3 volumes were released all hitting Gold Status. Vin also has a weekly mix on 947 on the 947 Mix at 6 with Fresh on 947 every Monday just after 6pm.
Vin now produces the 947 BlocParty Part 2 Shows on a Friday 10pm-Midnight and Saturday 9pm-Midnight where he also has a guest mix slot
A talented remixer, Vin has worked with various South African artists, remixing tracks for Locnville, Flash Republic and Zebra & Giraffe, to name just a few.
Mixing and mastering the Ministry of Sound albums in SA was a real honour for Vin, and he has also had a lot of fun working on many other CD launches in the country totaling to over 35 Albums.
