I think everyone is craving a good party right now. I know we are! But what makes a party a good party? It’s a combination of many things; from the ideal venue or the size of the crowd; maybe it’s the theme; but one thing’s for sure, the entertainment is top of that list. An innovative and versatile DJ will make or break the party! Enter Michael Sutton: DJ, Producer and a local untapped talent!

From a very young age, Michael has been into music. After dusting off his dads’ old 80’s and 90’s records, Michael began mixing modern pop and dance tracks with one hit wonders from the past! Getting his first break at family friends gig, Michael rented some speakers and the rest is history.

Music is Life

Breaking Boundaries

Michael is an energetic and innovative DJ, always finding new styles and genres to mix into his sets. With his infectious engagement and interaction with the crowd, the energy and passion is palatable.

“For me, as a DJ and producer it’s all about the mood and energy on the dance floor. When I look down from the stage and see people smiling and bouncing, exhausted, but not wanting to leave the dance floor – then I know I have done my job.’ Says Michael.

Keeping within his boundaries and what makes him happy musically, Michael does not necessarily play for the masses, but rather mixes an exciting and personal selection of tracks that naturally attract the crowds. 

Often jamming with other musicians, Michael regularly mixes his sets up with a saxophonist, cellist as well as percussionists.

What’s Next?

Michaels’ Future

Michael is a versatile DJ, mixing old and new music seamlessly. And with his cool temperament, he is able to switch between club dj’ing, corporate events and even weddings. Michael is adaptable and he is able to read the crowd with ease (something that is missing in a lot of modern DJ’s.)

Michael has his sights set on big things and is placing most of his focus on his music production, with the hopes of having a big impact on the music scene. Having already played in the top clubs in Cape Town; shared a stage with Jimmy Nevis, Matthew Mole and opened for DJ EUPHONIK, Michael is well on his way to establishing his unique brand in the Cape Town market,

Michael has a new original track ‘Just For The Night’ that is being released on Spotify and Apple Music in the next few weeks. He also has a podcast DEEPSOUTH Sessions that showcases his own music as well as other local artists. Now that’s a Deep South Vibe!
