DJ & Producer - Headroom

I was at a personal crossroads with my tertiary education. I assumed I’d have to study a more typical degree and started one at UCT. However, after a year and a half, I was unhappy and more lost than before but a good friend suggested CAC,  knowing that I was a passionate DJ and music lover. Thankfully I made the switch and never looked back. 

Cape Audio gave me the theory I needed to get a good grounding in audio engineering and most importantly the ability to be hands-on with audio gear that one needs to be familiar with. These valuable lessons helped form the building blocks of what I needed to know before becoming a producer. At the time the producer course hadn’t started at the college but the principles I learned were still essential in understanding what the objectives are in making music and how to achieve them.  

Since 2005 I have worked for myself as a full-time Psytrance producer and DJ known as HEADROOM.
