Charl Van Zyl

DJ & Sound Engineer

DJ Charl

I started DJ’ing in Johannesburg in 2000.

Starting off with two turntables and a mixer, I learnt the basics of the craft like beat matching. and mixing in key. Progressing quickly from playing for friends at private events, to playing the club circuit, I built up experience in catering to different tastes, and mixing different genres.

When I moved to Cape Town in 2006, with 6 years experience as a DJ, I quickly picked up bookings with various hotels and event companies as a preferred supplier.

Relying on word of mouth from satisfied clients as my only form of advertising, I am constantly booked out for months in advance.

Genres that I play:

Commercial Dance ( Radio Play / Top 40 hits)
Old School (80's to 2000's) & Hard Rock
Hip Hop (Classic Era 2000's)
Commercial House & Deep House
Local South African
Gqom / Amapiano
