Biography


“Representing the sound that touches your soul”

SEF KOMBO BEGAN HIS JOURNEY AS A SOULFUL, DEEP, AFRO HOUSE DJ ELEVEN YEARS AGO, HOWEVER HE HAS BEEN DABBLING ON THE DECKS FOR FAR LONGER. GROWING UP IN BRIXTON, SOUTH LONDON, SEF LEARNT THE BASICS WHILE ASSOCIATING WITH ‘KRAZY HYPE’, USING FARDA FIFA’S VINYL COLLECTION AS PRACTICE MATERIAL. WHILE HE ONLY SAW THIS AS A PASTIME, THESE SESSIONS WERE FUNDAMENTAL IN SEF’S DECISION TO PURSUE A PROFESSIONAL CAREER AS A DJ.

INITIALLY A MIXED GENRE DJ, SEF QUICKLY LINKED UP WITH DUO, VOICE’N’VIBES, PLAYING SETS WHENEVER THE OPPORTUNITY GRACED HIMSELF. IT WASN’T LONG THAT SEF DISCOVERED THE SOUNDS OF HOUSE & UK FUNKY AND THUS THE BIRTH OF ‘DJ FUNKIN’ SEF’ WAS BORN. HIS PROWESS ON DECKS ALSO GRANTED HIM THE TITLE ‘SEF KNOWS BEST’.

WITH AN INDUSTRIOUS MOVE OF LOCATION, SEF BASED HIMSELF IN LEICESTER LOCATED IN THE MIDLANDS AND INFILTRATED THE BURGEONING STUDENT SCENE. PLAYING HOUSE & FUNKY IN A ‘BASSLINE’ DOMINATED SCENE QUICKLY SEPARATED SEF FROM HIS COUNTERPARTS AND MADE HIM SYNONYMOUS WITH THE GENRE OF HOUSE.

SEF BEGAN PRODUCING THE MIX CDS ‘SEF KNOWS BEST’ & ‘IN THE ‘FUNKIN’ HOUSE’, DEFINING HIS STYLE AND EDUCATING A NEW GENERATION ON A ONCE OBSCURE GENRE. THE YEARS WENT ON AND SEF REFINED HIS STYLE FROM FUNKY TO DEEP HOUSE, CREATING THE INTERNATIONALLY RENOWN ‘SEF SESSIONS’ SERIES OF HOUSE PODCASTS.

DELVING EVER DEEPER INTO THE MUSIC, SEF DISCOVERED THE WORLD OF AFRO HOUSE AND INSPIRED HIM TO RELEASE THE MIX CD ‘AFRO POWER’ IN 2009 TO SHOWCASE THE WORKS OF THE TALENTED AFRICAN HOUSE PRODUCERS, INTRODUCING SOUTHERN AFRICA TO THE SOUNDS OF SEF KOMBO.

NOWADAYS, SEF IS CALLED UPON TO PLAY IN LONDON, MANCHESTER, BRIGHTON, GERMANY, SPAIN, AUSTRIA, SWEDEN, FRANCE, ITALY DENMARK, SWITZERLAND, POLAND, TANZANIA AND EVERYWHERE IN-BETWEEN. HAVING HOSTED REGULAR SHOWS ON LONDON’S BEAT FM AND BBC RADIO 1XTRA, SEF HAS ALSO APPEARED ON KISS 100, BBC ASIAN NETWORK, RINSE FM, REPREZENT RADIO, EAST AFRICA RADIO AS WELL AS A SPECIAL GUEST FEATURES ON LARS BEHRENROTH’S WORLD RENOWNED PODCAST, “DEEPER SHADES OF HOUSE” AND SCENES FOR MIXMAG.

AUGMENTING HIS NAME TO SEF KOMBO, HE NOW MANAGES 3 SUCCESSFUL BRAND AND EVENTS, TIL TWO, MOTHERLAND & SESSIONS. SEF ALSO PRODUCERS AND HOSTS HIS WEEKLY RADIO SHOW #SKRH AND CONTINUES TO EXPAND HIS SKILLS AS A DJ, BROADCASTER & MUSIC PRODUCER.

WHAT YOU GET FROM SEF KOMBO DURING A SET IS A JOURNEY AND AN EDUCATION TO GREAT SONGS, HE IS NEVER AFRAID TO PLAY THE UNFAMILIAR BUT BE SURE WHEN HE DROPS THEM, THEY SOUND GOOD…
