Meet budding local music producer, Francois Boyd Louw, aka DJ Boydlo

Francois Boyd Louw aka DJ Boydlo is a local DJ who grew up in the dance music scene .

Boydlo has always been passionate about music which led to him to mixing songs at a very young age.

At first he borrowed turntables from friends, and soon thereafter bought his own - motivating him to play at events such as house parties and clubs.

More recently, Boydlo was chosen as one of 20 DJs from around the world (in a pool of over 8000 people) to represent the Burn Residency 2015 competition in Ibiza.

Boydlo, speaking to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies, said he aimed to work more with tech sounds and start performing in local events around Cape Town.

In the near future, he said he hoped to produce music, as he believed producing one's own sound is a form of giving back.
