Tuesday 29 March 2016Book Guy Herman
Guy Herman’s lifelong love affair with rhythm and beat has led to the cultivation of a musical career spanning over a decade and a half, taking him from the forefront of South Africa’s burgeoning dance scene to the frontline of London’s electronic underground, Ibiza’s cultural melting pot and beyond.
Guy’s predilection for evocative deep house; bass driven, ‘hands-in-the-air’ techno and moody tribal groove underpins his vast and eclectic musical arsenal. That, coupled with flawless technical aptitude and an enduring underground sensibility, has allowed Guy to develop a style and sound, which is diverse and discerning, yet, unashamedly danceable.
Growing up in Johannesburg, Guy launched his DJ career at the height of the 90’s rave scene. He was schooled on a diet of old school house, garage and hip hop before honing his distinctive sound whilst rising to infamy as both a solo artist and one half of South Africa’s most popular DJ duo, Pimp Squad.
Guy’s reputation as one of SA’s finest, most well respected DJs belies industry accolades and achievements too numerous to mention. He has graced the decks of virtually every SA nightclub, festival and event; toured with the likes of Yousef, Mark Knight, Mihai Popoviciu, NTFO, Jake Childs, The Wildkats, Jordan Peak & Jay West, and shared billing with some of the world’s most respected DJs/Producers including Loco Dice, Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox, Sasha, Marc Romboy, Stephan Bodzin, Mr C, Layo & Bushwacka, Hot since 82, Wally Lopez, Riva Starr, Inland Knights, Atjazz, Federico Molinari, Barem, Tim Green, Hector Couto, Marcin Czubala, Pleasurekraft, Tiefschwarz, Julien Chaptal, Trickski, Visionquest, Laura Jones & many more.
The epitome of a true entertainer, his DJ performance is an engaging, infectious affair. Every dancefloor encounter with Guy Herman will leave you wanting more as he pushes the boundaries of sight and sound with the singular goal of rocking crowds the world over.
