September 23, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - September 24, 2017 @ 3:00 am$10
Before technology brought the art of DJing to the masses, DJs were an elite group who had the dedication and determination to master it’s technical intricacies, and the skills and style to grab the world’s attention before the days of YouTube, SoundCloud and even the Internet. DJ Pump is one of the lasting members of that group, and for over 20 years has been bringing his unique brand of party-rocking to lucky audiences around the globe.
Though he first gained notoriety as one of Canada’s top turntablists, grabbing both the DMC and ITF national crowns and other top DJ awards, Pump has since continued to prove that he’s about more than just impressive tricks. In fact, he effortlessly balances all of the qualities that make a world-class DJ: he’ll empower you to discover new music while helping you to remember the old, playing even the most classic joints in ways you’ve never heard before; he’ll seamlessly blend genres from hip-hop to funk, trap to soul, and disco to house in one evening without ever skipping a beat; and he’ll do it all with the same unmatched flair that has earned him the respect of his peers around the world as one of the best in the game and one of Canada’s DJ crown jewels.
Over the years, Pump has shared the stage with the likes of A-Trak, Diplo, DJ AM, Grandtheft, Keys N Krates, J Rocc, Jazzy Jeff, DJ Premier, The Roots, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Public Enemy and Snoop Dogg, among others. When he’s not keeping dance floors moving behind the decks, he is also an accomplished producer, known especially in the DJ community for his edits and remixes that bring some of that unmistakeable DJ Pump flavour to any set.
In a world where the DJ has become a dime a dozen, Pump is as real as it gets. Whether rocking the world’s biggest clubs or its most intimate hidden gems, his sets are an experience that you won’t forget.
