Vinny Da Vinci

With just over two decades of deejaying under his belt, Vinny Da Vinci is one of the most important figures on the South African electronic dance music scene.

Vinny has helped galvanize deep underground club culture in his various guises: as a partner in the power house House Afrika Records (www.houseafrika.com); as compiler and executive producer of many of their top-selling compilations; as a producer alongside his long time partner, Dj Christos in the groundbreaking Djs At Work; as co-owner of the classic Tshwane nightclub Carnalita; and as a deejay on the leading edge of the underground house scene.

Raised in Pretoria (Atteridgeville & Mabopane), Vinny began buying vinyl after watching his mentor, Atteridgeville’s Dj Correy, blend records on a pair of Technics turntables at a club called Ship Ahoy (one of the first clubs in Mabopane) in the late 80s. He got his break when the resident Dj at another Mabopane club, Cherry’s, failed to pitch up and he was asked to stand in. He impressed the owners immensely and landed a residency, later quitting his day-job at a clothing store to become a full-time Dj.

Vinny then did stints at Club Gemini (another club in Pretoria that changed the face of music in South Africa). Gemini at the time was an institution that was instrumental in breaking house music locally – and at Cherry’s, then he hit Johannesburg, securing a residency at The Arena in Hillbrow in 1995.
