Back Chat: House Music
We chat to music producer, DJ and entrepreneur Euphonik, who also juggles various property development and investment interests
WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?
I was born in Nelspruit and grew up in Daveyton and later Benoni.
WHO WERE THE MAIN INFLUENCERS IN YOUR CHILDHOOD?
Mainly my folks, even though I didn’t know it at the time. I’ve watched them build everything they have from the ground up. The lesson is hard work, dedication and sacrifice for your goals.
WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW AND WHY?
I live in Fourways, which is very scenic and is the traffic haven of South Africa.
WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD?
All the typical stuff, before I discovered DJing. I wanted to be a doctor or a lawyer.
WHAT DO YOU DO TODAY?
Music and property – I play house and then I buy house. These are my high-level priorities.
WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU?
The legacy I leave to the world and my family.
WHAT DOES THE WORD “HOME” MEAN TO YOU?
Home for me is where all the people and things I love are. It’s my sanctuary.
IF YOU COULD LIVE ANYWHERE, WHERE WOULD IT BE?
Right now, any of the Balwin properties (balwin.co.za) around South Africa is where I’d love to live.
