Famous DJ, producer, sound engineer & controller for The 947 Breakfast Xpress, Vin Deysel has joined forces with KTM.
“We are proud to announce that we have appointed Vin Deysel as a brand ambassador, he is a perfect fit for our brand in the sense that he is young, vibrant and ultra-professional at what he does.”, says Riaan Neveling, Marketing Manager of KTM South Africa.
Vin has been in the music industry since he could hold a pair of headphones and spends all his free time helping out with the family music business. As a teenager growing up, Vin preferred DJ-ing at clubs and other events. After running the production department at a community radio station, he took on the role of head sound engineer for SAB’s Gig Rig, engineering for some of SA’s biggest bands. From there he moved on to 947 and soon began making mixes for 947. Vin also mixes and produces the Friday and Saturday night BlocParty shows on 947. His 35+ albums have sold over 200 000 units in South Africa and the Vin Mix is now a permanent feature on the 947 Breakfast Xpress every Friday morning.
Being an avid motorcyclist Vin started riding motorcycles at the age 15 years old and says he has always felt “FREE” and “ALIVE” when riding a motorcycle. Even though safety is always his top priority he has learnt to live in a semi-permanent state of hyper awareness while riding a bike… “And yet I still feel “FREE” and “ALIVE.”, says Vin.
“I am truly proud to be associated with the KTM Brand, after meeting the family at KTM SA they have reminded me that motorcycling is a passion and a passion that once you feel it… it will never disappear!”, says Vin Deysel.
