Since early 1999, McTwist has evolved a sound over the years to one distinctly his own. His musical background as a drummer allowed him to pick up djing easily and he is taking his gift and running with it. He is a breaks pioneer in his home town of Calgary, AB and has helped pave the way for many talented djs. His sets are ever changing and range all the way from hip hop to drum and bass and hitting most genres in between while focusing on his true passion of Breaks. His flow from one style to another is undeniably smooth. He can mix, he can scratch and he can shake his booty, there is never a dull moment when watching or listening to one of McTwist’s set. With, a pulled down low, flat brim hat on his head and always with a smile, he really gets the crowd into the sets with his amazing energy. He has played along side many giants in electronic music such as: Elite Force, The Freestylers, Deekline, Dj Dan, A-Track, and many others.
Since 2005, Ryan (McTwist) has hosted an internet radio show on www.Nubreaks.com which has since moved to www.the-lost-art.com. This show is broadcast all over the planet and has recently received recognition from the world breakbeat community by being nominated for Best Radio Show in the 2011 Breakspoll awards. His work in the studio has produced some serious tunes. With the release “Petrol” produced with Dj fixx and Keith Mackenzie, which hit #11 on the beatport breaks chart and is out Illeven:Eleven, things are looking up for this vet. His release in 2012 of “Dream 2 Step” on Breakz R Boss Records which was remixed by heavy hitters such as Kraymon, Manu Twister, HNoize and a few others gained some wide recognition hitting the beatport top 100 breaks chart. Not only has he done originals but has a few remixes under his belt for the likes of The Mighty Fools on Crux records along with other remixes on the Breakz r Boss label.
