Lesley is also voice over artist and a mean disc-jockey with a very eclectic selection as he takes his audience through a journey of various genres and eras. What sets Lesley apart from most DJ's is that he can play any genre of music, from: Jazz, Soul, Disco, House, R&B, Hip hop, Kwaito and Classics. He'll rock any crowd, young and old. "I believe that music is one medium that's able to transcend through time and audiences of diverse backgrounds. Music evokes memories from people, the ethos and principles I apply in my acting, public speaking and DJ'ing are the same, I focus on what gives us common ground. Educate, entertain and leave people with something to think about. Everything is a microcosm of the other. If people can't see themselves in the characters I portray, or remember where they where, what was happening in their lives when they hear my music, I hope that they'll at least endevour to live the lifestyle that my characters live. The next time they hear that song, they remember the last gig where I played. Music for me is a form of escapism and healing. He was a club DJ for 5 years, having played at some of Gauteng's top clubs. Nowadays he mostly plays at annual shows
