Biography

Beaker spins UK Hardhouse, NRG, and Hard Trance in Toronto, Canada.

He started spinning in mid-July of 1999. Previous musical experience from guitar and piano helped him learn quickly and he played his first show at the Living Room, Toronto in December of 1999 for Nexus Productions. A residency for Small Society followed shortly thereafter.

Beaker takes pride in his ear and his sense of structure and timing. He concentrates on every detail of each track in an attempt to pull each mix off perfectly. In practice, he’ constantly searching for key combinations and ways to use elements of different songs together. Otherwise, he feels he’d just get bored. In performance, he progresses from hard, driving UK Hardhouse into the bouncier side of Nu-NRG, typically finishing off his sets with hard uplifting trance.
