Lost somewhere in the sonic highways of over produced smoke and lasers we found an opportunity… We are not an overblown production relying on cheap flash and hyperbolic pageantry. We are a collective of diverse and versatile deejays that have banded together under a common goal: putting music first.
We are deejays driven by an earnest passion for the art form, our music, and have genuine desire to put on a true performance for an audience’s enjoyment. Lost somewhere in the sonic highways of over produced smoke and lasers we found an opportunity.
Thus, we started Foreign City: A creative collaboration that places primary focus on crafting an immersive, modern, and cutting edge entertainment experience – for a wide range of events. From high-profile corporate functions, to the heartbeat of nightlife.
Like the surreal feeling one gets arriving in a new far-off place they’ve before only read about – Foreign City is an alluring endeavour into a unique experience. Don’t just see the ‘Foreign City’ – Live it.
I am a DJ, a producer, a remixer, a husband, a lover of art and culture. I ply my trade in the beautiful city of Toronto, where night life is booming and home grown music thrives. In 2001 I sold my bass guitar, bought my first pair of turntables, and started a journey I could not have predicted. On any given day you can find me in the heart of the club district throwing it down, curating a unique funk/ pop sound in a bar, creating a exciting experience for corporate clients, or preparing music for the week’s bookings. I love what I do and consider myself very blessed to be where I am.
Every booking presents a unique chance to entertain. Every minute of an event needs the right music to match. This is the art of DJ’ing and my core philosophy as a selector. Atmosphere is dynamic. Its my job to shape it in a way that matches my clients expectations and excites my audience.
