DJ SOO steadfastly (some say stubbornly) refuses to be pigeonholed in any specific genre or style. Long considered one of Vancouver’s best party-rocking DJs, SOO has spent the last decade perfecting his craft and honing his skills – mixing, cutting, scratching and blending a wide range of different styles while keeping heads nodding and bodies moving.
Having supported a virtual who’s who list of talent (including such diverse artists as Q-Bert, Z-Trip, Mix Master Mike, Afrika Bambaataa, DJ Numark, Lorin Bassnectar, the Stanton Warriors, Shy FX, and many more), been involved in countless residencies, and having played in venues around the world, SOO has garnered an international reputation as being one of Canada’s most diverse, skilled, and original DJs. Equally at home in front of a packed dancefloor as he is an intimate lounge, SOO is known as much for his unique musical selection as the intricate manner in which he weaves the music together. This skill and technique lead to DJ SOO winning the 2009 Vancouver Megablend DJ competition – a contest that featured over 40 local Djs.
￼These days, DJ SOO is keeping himself busy: playing a wide assortment of gigs, touring, creating a steady flow of acclaimed mixtapes, throwing parties with the Super Happy Dance Deejay crew, or performing one of his legendary 4- turntable sets with longtime collaborator DJ Wood. In addition, SOO has been sequestering himself in the studio to create more original productions and remixes – many of which have been receiving support from DJs around the world. 2011 has been a big year for SOO with 4 tracks signed and 2012 looks to be even bigger. Merely 2 months into the year, DJ SOO has already had two chart topping releases hit #1! His first vinyl release - a devastating bass-heavy re-imagining of the classic Grandmaster Flash track The Message hit #1 on the Juno Breakbeat/Electro vinyl charts within days. His first collaboration with DJ WOOD released on the Tremendo Records Vol 2 EP helped propel the EP to #1 in the overall sales Charts on Juno Download within a week.
Never content to simply follow trends of the day, SOO thrives on broadening his own musical horizons in an endless search for new music and styles to keep even the most jaded of partiers firmly entrenched on the dance-floor. SOO brings with him a palate of music that covers a wide spectrum of styles – forward-thinking underground sounds, familiar classics, soulful rare groove, banging club hits, and much more – all mixed seamlessly to perfection with a healthy dose of turntablism added for good measure. Whether at a club, lounge, rave, or house party, having SOO behind the decks is a guarantee for a rump-shaking good time.
