Biography

Location: Dallas, United States United States
Genre: Breaks, House

Canadian born and bred, DJ Dvyne grew up in the city of Calgary. His house was always filled with a wide variety of music ranging from classical to hard rock. Being from a musical family, he tried piano and guitar before finally settling on trumpet as his instrument of choice for the rest of his young life. In his teen years he enjoyed much of the popular music such as rap and dance music along with jazz and reggae. (This laid the foundation for his love of funky beats.)

At age 18 he felt the need to spread his wings, so he decided it was time to head south to the U.S. and joined the U.S. Air Force. After serving his active duty enlistment, Dvyne ended up in Oklahoma attending Oklahoma Baptist University as a Youth Ministry major. During his time there, he met his future wife and shortly thereafter, followed a calling to become a full time firefighter.

During a trip home to visit his family in Canada, he saw his set of Technics Turntables from high school in the basement and decided to bring them back stateside for old times sake. After 6 months with some fresh vinyl, Dvyne was offered a spot at local radio station and he became the host of the hottest dance radio show in Oklahoma City in April of 2000. As the originator and driving force behind the KOKF Weekend Party Mix/Lifted-Radio on 91FM he has turned Friday nights into a party for thousands of weekly listeners in central Oklahoma State.

Although starting his DJ career as an avid fan of Progressive Trance & Gospel House, seeing DJ’s like Carl Cox, DJ Dan and Donald Glaude ignited a passion for hard-funky music that lay dormant inside. Since then, DJ Dvyne has been pumping his signature Funky-Tech-House & Filtered-Disco-House sounds through systems everywhere.

Dvyne has played for crowds ranging from intimate parties to 30,000+ festivals in places like Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, Kansas City, and internationally in Canada & Central America as well. His mix sets have also been heard around the world on numerous radio mix shows, Web Broadcasts and Dance Websites. Dvyne has played with names like Micro, X-Dream, Quivver, John Debo, CZR, Oliver Klein, Polywog, Johnny Fame, Translucent, Scott Blackwell, Dave Trance & James Christian, Five Iron Frenzy, Reliant K and John Rueben. Combining his love for God and enjoyment of music; Dvyne strives to deliver an experience that will elevate your mind, body and soul.
