Carfax, real name Liam Richards, is a South African-born, DJ and producer. His love for music began back in his hometown, where art is loved by the people of Johannesburg. Carfax is always listening to things around him, even subconsciously, which helps him craft images from sound. “I know people naturally like images so I try to make an image from music that people can see when they listen to it”
I caught up with Carfax recently to ask some very important questions…

LC – “Bags, bags, bags. They’re very useful things. If we didn’t have bags, what would we use, to put a lot of things in?”
CTP – I don’t know if it’s this joint or the tripper that wrote these questions, but I’m wigging out.
