DJ Euphonik


Born in Mpumalanga, Themba Nkosi (aka DJ Euphonik) spent his early years in Likazi before moving to Daveyton and then Benoni. His love of music was fueled by artists his father was listening to - The Spinners, Marvin Gaye, Stimela and Hugh Masekela were on constant rotation. By his late teens he was already behind the decks and quickly established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the clubbing scene.

Euphonik also landed a highly coveted job doing A&R for SoulCandi, a house music label. Initial regional radio exposure of his infectious mixes on Yfm led to national exposure on 5fm’s Fresh Drive and ultimately Euphonik was given his very own radio show plus his weekly Ultimix every Wednesday on the Fresh Drive. Arguably one of South Africa’s most sought after DJ’s and recently included in the Mail & Guardian’s Top 200 young South Africans, Euphonik has scaled the ranks of DJ, producer and radio presenter territory in an incredibly short space of time. His album 'Total Blackout' was nominated for a Metro FM Award in 2013 under the Best Compilation category. Euphonik was back with another album, 'For the Love of House', in late 2013.
