Based: Cape Town

‘Best known for his uplifting melodies and swanky grooves, Tommy Gun has always leaned towards the lighter side of dance music as a DJ. Schooled in the classics yet with a modern sensibility, Tommy Gun strikes a rare balance between feeding the proverbial beast on the dancefloor and presenting it with something new.

Tommy Gun honed his craft over a ten-year period as resident DJ and promoter of the pioneering ‘Untamed Youth’ club night in Cape Town. The first of its kind, Untamed Youth introduced local crowds to a new wave of indie/electronic/disco sounds and proved to be a solid platform for up-and-coming DJ’s and performers alike.

Inspired to reach out to new and diverse audiences, Tommy Gun has played at most major clubs and festivals across South Africa as well as internationally in Mauritius, London and Copenhagen. He has also featured alongside respected international artists such as Classixx, Two Door Cinema Club, Marcus Marr, Para One, The 2 Bears and Jacques Renault.”
