“When it comes right down to it, it’s my love for house music that has kept me in it for all these years.”

Staying true to a genre is an understatement for Justin. A house music devotee since he first started DJ’ing in 1989, Justin spent the first 20 yrs of his DJ life hauling his flight cases of vinyl and helping pioneer the original warehouse/after-hours party scene in Western Canada.

“In the 90’s DJ’ing wasn’t what it was today, no MP3’s or easy access to music… vinyl was the only choice. Being both incredibly expensive and difficult to obtain, DJ’s had to make a serious commitment to the art to even be involved.”

Coming up through the golden age of classic house and techno though was a true gift. This helped forge Justin’s reputation for long, well curated house sets that have graced many venues, from main stage and fractal forest at Shambhala, to clubs and warehouses across Western Canada. And after all these years, Justin still has the same principle, expose the people to cutting edge, ‘hi-brow’ house music. Please enjoy responsibly.
