By playing video games and watching his friends produce music on FL Studio (Fruity Loops) 31-year-old, South African producer, Siphe Tebeka began his electronic music career. In 2007, Siphe got a copy of Fruity Loops from a friend. He became obsessed with learning the software to the point of driving his mother crazy because he played every sound non-stop. His obsession led to teaching music production for the non-profit organization Bridges for Music and lecturing at SAE Institute.
His work for Bridges for Music led to the opportunity of a lifetime, to play Belgium’s famed festival Tomorrowland. 2014 was a year of firsts for Siphe. It was the first time he applied for a passport, a visa, it was the first time he traveled on an airplane, and it was the first time he played in front of thousands of people at a festival. After Tomorrowland, Siphe began touring the world regularly as DJ/live act. Today, Siphe is part of South Africa’s new generation of Afro House and Afro Tech ambassadors bringing new energy and sounds to electronic music.
