Having started off his career in the project “Damage” back in 2001, he was one of the pioneers of the South African psytrance scene alongside such artists as Rinkadink, Protoculture, and Shift. He joined Alchemy records shortly after starting the Broken Toy solo project in 2003.

Over 70 tracks have been released on various labels along the way, with his self-titled debut album released in 2005. The follow up album and part 2 in the trilogy, “The low, down, dirty sound of…” was released in 2007.

He has performed at parties all over the world - Brazil, India, Russia, UK, Canada, South Africa, Israel, Mexico, France, Spain, Austria, Italy, Greece, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden,Finland, Germany, Portugal, Japan, Australia - and has played at major festivals such as Boom festival in Portugal, Glade festival in the UK, Full Moon festival in Germany, SOnica in Italy, Universo Parallelo in Brazil as well as all the major parties in South Africa such as PRISM, Vortex, Origin, H20, Fu-cha, Alien Safari, etc.

    @thecarpy . I thought the new profile pic was a slight improvement on the sweaty club pic of me in tokyo from 6 years ago that was up before. Sorry if it doesnt meet your high standards. I can tell from your profile pic that you are a master at photoshop - maybe you can help me out sometime ?

    Digging Sentimental Splatter is breakcore, my favorite from broken toy (breakcore guy) ... I don't like {psy}trance It is cool that it is in free download, if you like it, go to for more breakcore, idm and experimental electronica. On the electronica compilation, I like Subtext ... a completely different genre, though ....
