Cape Town based drum and base producer and DJ, SFR, first fell in love with the genre in 2000. Since then he has been creating drum loops with layers of bass and complex melodies to make beats that are inspired by almost every genre of music, both new, old, underground and main stream. In 2007 he began experimenting with dubstep, he first heard at Homegrown (Cape Town’s biggest drum and bass night). DJ SFR has released numerous solo records and collaborated with South African artists, Mix n’Blend and Hyphen. In a recent interview he was asked when he first started DJing and producing, SFR responded after a friend introduced him to D&B he was hooked, “The speedy drum patterns, the sub bass, the complex rhythms and the overall subculture of people that belonged to it. Not long after I bought a turntable, started buying records and began fiddling around in a few sequencers.” Download this passionate DJ’s EP, Difference in Detail from his website now!
