Who we are

Music is in our blood. Before all else, we’re musicians. Whatever your need or your challenge, we get it. 


Stephen Du Plessis

Director of NSE Music and the ultimate gear snob

If a genre exists, Stephen has been in a band that   plays it. Stephen is passionate about music, gear and   designing solutions around clients’ needs. He is a   sound engineering graduate and has worked in the live sound industry for over ten years. He has held both   sales and management roles for some of the biggest     music retail stores in the country. Having been a musician for eleven years, he knows how challenging, and important it is to choose the right gear, get it at the right price, and have a pleasant buying experience.

Juan Olivier

Operations Co-ordinator and DJ Fundi

Juan Olivier is part logistical genius and part Trance DJ. If anyone knows how to get something delivered fast and knows DJ gear, it’s Juan. He has worked in music retail stores for ages, watched most DJs live, and has spent a generous portion of his adult life at music festivals. Juan has cutting-edge product knowledge, and is always up to date about what’s new and what’s trending when it comes to simplifying DJ rigs.  


Neil Bezuidenhout

Co-owner of NSE Events and a planner whizz

Neil has around two solid decades of experience in the music industry. He has an exceptional ear, an extensive knowledge of music and recording software, and is a planning whizz when it comes to working out specifications for venues and events. Neil is a sound engineering graduate, a die-hard guitarist and just an all-round nice guy.


So we’re not just pretty faces.
