Starting as a small time DJ, Eviction’s productions soon propelled him into becoming a frontrunner in the east coast DJ scene. His unique style and ear for music made it easy for Eviction to stand out among an ever-growing east coast DJ market. His punk attitude and aggressive approaches to making music has helped Eviction become the east coasts most in demand producer/DJ. Selling out shows of 2200+ people across the east, thousands of screaming fans are a testament to Eviction’s talent and originality.
After finding his sound, which he describes as “Techno, Bass and Electro”, Eviction has played every major concert and festival in the east coast and central Canada. Eviction has headlined with electro heavy weights Bloody Beetroots, Felguk, Lazy Rich, and Vandalism, but he doesn’t stop there. He has also performed with Team Canada DJ’s three times in the last two years and played with Eh! Team Dj Ilo along with Scratch from the legendary Roots. As of late he’s expanding his musical reach to headline stages at events like WEMF and local club circuits in Ontario, as well as Quebec for Full moon party 2012 in which he headlined with Steve Angelo (Swedish House Mafia). On his way to WEMF 2012 he was luck enough to be able to officially promote for the festival while in Montreal for Osheaga doing an unofficial after party at Blue Dog Motel with Highonbeat.com’s founder Construct. Eviction has shown that his style is both versatile and marketable.
