Dancefloor drum n' bass, mixed all silky smooth-like.

A grizzled veteran of the drum n' bass & hardcore scenes, Datty (formerly Everybodies Daddy) has been on the case since 1999. Initially known as an MC in Toronto's vibrant underground, he quickly became known behind the decks for his high energy sets and slamming track selection. He has headlined shows across the northeast, including stops in New York City, Boston, Detroit, Buffalo, Cleveland, and Ottawa. He has played for crowds of thousands at some of the biggest local jams alongside an encyclopaedic list of world-class talent.
As a DJ, his studio mixes have torn up speakers worldwide. His mixes are more than just a random lucky accident - they're a musical storyline, designed & tweaked to toy with your emotions. He prides himself on weaving together tracks from several different genres of music, and several different styles of drum n' bass. He's not shy to blend oldschool, jump up, ragga, breakbeat hardcore, dubstep, and a bit of the nasty stuff in a way that's notorious for dancefloor mayhem. He credits Mr. Brown, Marcus Visionary, No Left Turn, and DJ Wolf as his biggest influences, and for getting him started on the decks. His live sets are dancefloor destroyers, with track selections spanning nearly 20 years of jungle music.
As an MC, he's infamous. Not shy to get down and perform right in the crowd, sometimes with Jager-infused results. On the case since 1999, and known for his electric stage presence. The Raving Eye dubbed him North America's top Hardcore MC. He mixes staccato freestyles with slick, meaningful rhymes like few others do, making his sound instantly recognizable. Datty is a regular fixture with some of Toronto's top rave promoters. He holds down residencies with New York's electric Ravers Only - and is a regular fixture at their legendary Candyball series - and with Detroit's Hardcore 313. He was resident with Toronto's infamous Hullabaloo!, as well as ICantStopRaving, SHX Productions, Biohazard, and ONdaFLY in years past.
A new mixtape is in the works, which will feature something the Toronto jungle scene has never heard before. Also in the works is another studio album with DJ Tranzit, collaborations with top DJ and vocal talent from all over the world, and possibly a return to event promotion. Who knows what dreams may come?
