Born in Joliette Qc, DJ Amyo grew up in a musical household where records were always being played. Being exposed to all types of music at a young age gave him an appreciation for a variety of genres. When he discovered Hip-Hop he was drawn to the art of turntablism. He began countless hours of practice to develop skills to emulate his favourite DJ’s.
Permanently moving to Squamish in 2003, he connected and performed with local DJ’s, MC’s and Musicians. From weddings, festivals, Halloween, Christmas party and art shows he has done it all. DJ Amyo live performance and turntable skills allows him to adapt to any crowd!
His obsession with collecting new music is still going strong. Digging in genres like Soul, Funk, Disco, R&B, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Drum & Bass, Trap, Glitch Hop and Top 40. Two decades later Dj Amyo still has a deep passion and dedication for the art of Djing. He is in the studio right now, practicing and getting ready for his next gig.
DJ AMYO starts at 9 PM! Let’s boogie!
