Purveyor of uncompromising house and techno & 1 half of the Killer Robot dj duo.
Bruno Morphet began spinning on the fringes Cape Town’s underground scene in the late 1990s. Between curating his own specialist Return to the Deep night, at the seminal club More, and holding down numerous residencies at clubs all over the city, Bruno slowly built up a reputation as a purist with an uncompromising approach to dance music, respected by his peers and punters alike for his commitment to underground quality.
In 2006 a collaboration with Ivan Turanjanin led to the formation of the Killer Robot club night and dj collective. Bruno helped to curate a night that became renowned as much for the residents and their individual styles as the stellar catalogue of guests that graced its stage. Killer Robot’s prescient eye for talent saw artists like Seth Troxler, Ryan Crosson, Konrad Black, Butane & Alex Smoke all making their debuts in South Africa long before they became household names. 8 years later, Killer Robot still maintains a heavyweight presence on South African stages and performs at clubs and festivals all over the country.
In addition to his ongoing involvement in Killer Robot, Bruno djs in his solo capacity across South Africa and is also a regular visitor to Germany, where he has played alongside Seth Troxler, Ryan Crosson and Shaun Reeves at their notorious afterhours night at Berlin’s Club Der Visionaere, as well as the famous Distillery club in Leipzig.
He has shared the decks with an armada of djing stars, and his expertise, not only as a headliner but also as a pitch perfect warmup act, has seen him open for everyone from Luciano to Abdulla Rashim, as well as sharing back to back sessions with the likes of Lee Burridge and Shonky.
Unconfined by genre and encompassing everything from hypnotic deep house to a full on techno assault, Bruno’s sets celebrate the craft of djing whilst keeping the pressure high on the dancefloor at all times.
