Nathan’s versatility allows him to break boundaries and win over fans of many different sounds. For the past 15 years, Nathan has been a favorite in the Toronto scene. In the early years, Nathan’s innate ability to win the crowd over with his groove scored him gigs at legendary Toronto nightclubs . Musically, Nathan’s range dabbles in many genre’s within the 4/4 spectrum going back to his influence of 90’s garage, and ranging to many spans of current club music. Throughout his career, Nathan has played in cities throughout North America and Europe, but considers Toronto his home base.





junkiesThe Junkies – The Junkies’ style has continued to evolve over the years under the influence of various genres of electronic music, ranging from deep soulful house to techno and everything in between. Drawing from these has resulted in a sound of their own both in the studio and in their DJ sets. It’s this sound that has made them a consistently present force in the Toronto club scene for over 10 years. The Junkies has played alongside some of the world’s most respected artists on a regular basis including the likes of Dubfire, Marco Carola, Paco Osuna and Loco Dice just to name a few.
