I always had a passion for music. I started playing guitar at the age of 9 and drums at the age of 10.
I started making music via a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) at the age of 16. I immediately knew that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.
I kept on doing house party’s, weddings, private functions etc. Word got out and it was not long before I got employed at Club Ambition in Edward Street, Bellville, where I was a DJ for 12 months.
I chose the stage name Gumtrap , and is keen to play live shows whenever I get the opportunity. I love tripping on my gear, the Traktor Kontrol F1, VMS4.1 Traktor Midi controller and Novation’s Ableton Launchpad – S.
I studied sound engineering and music production at COPA (Campus of Performing Arts). In my spare time I like to create remixes and creating my own music, with the goal to release my EP – Electronic Deficit Disorder early in 2014.
Some of my mixes and remixes are released on Soundcloud:
