Meet Coby D. – Hard Dance DJ and So Much More



coby d

Coby D. is best known to us for his harddance sets during The Saturday Sessions and as one half of the “Official Wrecking Crew” on Rough House Radio, but he has been in the DJ game for quite awhile and knows the business well.

Coby D has been spinning since 1995 and is the co-owner of SoundHouse Recording Studio in South Africa. This is where his skills as sound engineer, producer and remixer shine. If you listen to Coby’s sets, you can tell that his ear for music and sound is one of the things that really sets him apart. This is no surprise since major acts and celebrities recruited him to run sound for him around the Western Cape area.

Always willing to groom the next generation of DJs, Coby ran a DJ school from 2001-2003 where he taught his students the foundations of turntables and vinyl. Exactly where he grew his roots scratching for recording artists tracks and metal and alternative bands under different aliases.

Taking his skills to the competition level, Coby was one of the four winners of the international 12Inch Thumpers Champion Sound remix competition in 2003. The remix is still available on Beatport if anyone wants to have a listen.

Dedication, preparation, persistence, and limitless talent are the words that sum up Coby D’s DJ career and we are lucky to have him as part of the Rough House Radio family.
