DJ Shagz has been spinning wax since 1995, turning what started out as a hobby into a career of solid shows and high-profile gigs.
Shagz has performed in a number of locations across Canada, opening for a variety of artists such as The Crystal Method, Uberzone, David Usher, My Brilliant Beast and Audio Playground High and Wide, as well as playing at industry events like the Toronto International Film Festival and the Reel Asian Film Festival. Shagz was also a semi-finalist in the Premier North by North East DJ Competition held in Toronto, a guest DJ on Focus an internet radio show hosted at Beats – and has played sets at many Toronto night spots such as the Kool Haus, the Docks, NASA Dance Pub, The Victory Cafe, Labrynth, Blue Moon and Area 51.
Shagz tends to spin a varied mix of breaks and house, criss-crossing moods from funky to progressive, deep ‘n soulful to full-on bangers. However, Shagz’s personal musical tastes are quite varied, allowing him to tailor most of his sets to any crowd. Whether it’s hip hop, vintage funk, main room trance or the occasional drum and bass, he can probably pull it out of his crates, making each set a unique experience.
DJ Shagz can be found spinning around the Toronto area at various locations. Visit djshagz website for the latest on upcoming gigs, as well as listen to DJ sets and internet broadcasts.
