Dino Michael House music
Dino is held in high regards as one of the pioneers of House music in South Africa. He began developing a heart for music as he grew up in Pretoria; with Funk and House music being his preferred music genre.

He soon realized a gap in the market for a dance music store where one can find the most recent international releases fresh from the presses. This, therefore, gave birth to the famous DJ Syndicate Records and has lived to become the go-to specialist dance music store in South Africa with outlets across the country from Capetown, Johannesburg to Pretoria.
