DEKO-ZE
PPM, Hi-Bias Records, Guvernment, Footwork, Fly, Comfort Zone

Here's an introduction for a DJ that rarely needs one. Long a leading force
in the Canadian scene, Deko-ze has been cited as one of Toronto’s best
by Eye Weekly, Fab, Now Magazine, Xtra, and the Toronto DJ Festival.
For years he has been labeled “Canada’s hardest working DJ”,
frequently playing gigs in nearly every Canadian centre – big and
small. He has held residencies in clubs across the country for over 10
years.

Building on his international profile, Deko-ze has numerous gigs in the
USA, UK, Germany, Taiwan and Mexico under his belt. He was also signed
to a multi-year artist / development deal with Hi-Bias Records in
2006. So far, he has three singles ("This Time", "Feel Love" and
"Explosive"), two remixes (for Sherrie Lea and Nick Fiorucci
respectively) and two highly successful compilations ("Delicious"
compilation from 2006 and "Canada's Finest: House" from 2008) under
his belt. Plus, "Canada's Finest: House" was awarded Best Local Dance Album
by FAB Magazine!

Deko-ze has always believed in spreading the vibe - which was most evident
throughout the "Techno Prisoners" and "Technopolis" shows he co-produced
for several years; being an active member of the prestigious Balance
Record Pool as well as the Music2Mix promo release pool based in
London UK, Total Promo Service and ZipDJ based in Toronto; his long
running, inciteful, hilarious and scandalous "Fiends, Mischief &
Mayhem" column that ran in TRIBE and Scenester magazine and also as a
buyer at Toronto's Release Records and Eastern Bloc!

In a scene now overly segmented, Deko-ze is increasingly distinctive.
Although categorized as a House DJ, he is recognized for his ability
to fuse music of multiple genres (deep, funky and hard house; tribal;
progressive; electro; tech-trance; techno). His energetic and
charismatic stage presence, engaging personality, strong technical
skills, and original approach to programming have uniquely cultivated
a huge following in both the gay and straight scenes.

Simply put, everyone loves Deko-ze!
