Born in Durban, SA, Grant Sivell, aka DJ Opti broke into the DJ scene in 1997 when a DJ booked to play the VIP room of a Durban nightclub couldn’t make his set. Grant raced home, grabbed his records and, quite nervously, arrived to play his first ever live set. DJ Opti pulled off a brilliant first set, and from there, has moved from strength to strength. For the next 8 years, DJ Opti worked his way around the SA DJ scene and got all the experience he needed to make his move to the UK in 2005. After a 10 month break from the scene, his love of music and the nightlife came calling to he could no longer turn down the desire to do what he loved most. After playing around the London scene for a short while, DJ Opti met the Mike Parry and the Lucky Life Crew on one of our Thames Boat Parties. After helping out with the sound and lighting for many of the Lucky Life Parties and filling in a few sets, DJ Opti was officially made a resident with Lucky Life and the relationship was equally beneficial for both parties involved.
As a resident, DJ Opti has now toured with Lucky Life in SA and Ibiza and played at every one of our events over the last 2 years, playing in the most amazing clubs to the worlds best crowds, always living the Lucky Life. Some of his highlight gigs since joining Lucky Life have been The Terrace at Amnesia for Cream Opening Party 2009, Space Red Room, Ibiza closing parties 2009, Ministry of Sound in London, Roof top Party in Madrid, Traxx in Durban, SA and Lightbox in London.
As well as being a versatile, dedicated and talented DJ, Grant has been a great asset to the Lucky Life Crew with his top class knowledge of sound and lighting and his awesome dedication and support of the brand!
