DJ JoyRyde, hailing from Windsor, Ontario overlooking the Detroit skyline was born and raised in Goa, India. He was brought up in the Goa Trance/Psy trance scene when it had just started.

He is an extremely underground DJ who refuses to tarnish his reputation by going mainstream. He is famous for his weekly underground radio shows on Pirate Radio and various channels on Sh0utcast, and his weekly podcast on iTunes and MyPodcast. He is known for not fitting the norm and getting away from it and settling down with underground minimal techno which is extremely Detroit influenced.

Give him a pair of vinyls and a mixer and you will see magic happen. He uses remodified Fruity loops software to be able to make his downtempo minimal sounds. His engineering skills can be seen in his djing and producing.

His influences include, Sven Vath, Richie Hawtin, Umek, and other gods of the Minimal and Techno scene.

Good luck getting him to perform at your next event, he is extremely underground and almost never surfaces. Most of his productions in the scene are under various alias so it’s almost impossible to pin-point him.

When he is not mixing or producing the latest underground hits, he can be seen plowing through deep powder, snowboarding the mountains in Utah, or BC, or riding some waves around California or Sebastian Inlet in Florida.
