Lewis Mpotseng Tshinaba whose alias is Glen Lewis lived with his mother and his extended family in a four roomed house in Meadowlands. In 1974, his family moved to Pimville where there was not much recreation for youth, so he spent a lot of his time after school playing soccer. His goal was to play soccer at the highest level. So great was his skill that many, including him, believed that he would one day become a professional soccer player. It was when he was growing up that he developed a great love for music.
Glen Lewis was so passionate, he often passed time recording himself as he Dee Jayed. A year or two after discovering this passion for music, he met Thami Ntuli, a friend that was very instrumental in shaping Glen’s desire to be a radio DJ.
Glen Lewis remembers going to Thami’s house and seeing more records than he had ever seen before in his life. Thami’s father was at the time a DJ with radio Swazi, and this explained the extensive music library.
He is one of the pioneers of the MidTempo trend, releasing the first of the Mid-Tempo CD compilations in 1999. Five months later he released Numero Uno, which is a collection of pulsating Latic house tracks. Midtempo 2000 followed. In 2001, he teamed up with DJ Fresh to release Gatecrusher Meets Afrika. Most recently, he’s proved his versatility as an artist by releasing Midtempo III, an album of underground hip-hop tracks mixed with DJ Bionic.
