Calvin Potgieter, aka GREMLIN, is a DJ and producer hailing from Cape Town, South Africa. After moving to the United States after high school, he spent time studying music production at the legendary Scratch DJ Academy in New York - founded by Jam Master Jay of Run DMC. During that time he organized and played at multiple events and venues in Miami and New York.

After 3 years in the USA, he returned to Cape Town to study at SAE Institute under the guidance of the iconic Grandmaster Ready D. With an abundance of experience and knowledge from the American music culture, his style has evolved into a multi-cultural, genre-bending and energy-driven explosion of Trap, Hip-Hop and House.

Where our music is challenged, we will play it louder"
