2018 DJ Lineup

Jayzen

Jayzen is known in YYC as the psychedelic sensei, his DJ practice involves a curated selection of world fusion sounds mixed with tasteful turntablism. Jayzen holds it down from the festival world to the underground Hip Hop scene. He generates flawless soundscapes for Calgary artists to freestyle and showcase their microphone abilities, but he is just as comfortable moving the dance floor with his House and Hip Hop flavours as he is throwing down Boom Bap and Trap for for a Rap battle. By the time Jayzen co-created the Hip Hop crew ContraVerse Collective in 2010, he had already been DJing for about 10 years. Since then, he has also formed the Hip Hop duo Dawnzen with Spanish-speaking rapper Rebecca Dawn, and established Vibe N’ Out, YYC’s own diversity-forward urban entertainment habitat which happens every month at 628 Stage on Stephen Avenue. Jayzen has performed at FozzyFest and GlobalFest multiple times, and has opened up dance floors for world-renowned DJs such as What So Not and Destructo.
