I will never forget the night the first time I saw Deko-ze spin. It was in Hamilton at Lush nightclub, the vibe around me was great. I remember the place was just packed with people partying ,drinking and having a great time.I got to the club around 1:30 in the morning with my cousin Paul. I had no idea what was in store for me that night. I make my way to the bar to grab me and my cousin a beer and as I'm waiting for my drink I strike up a conversation with gentlemen named Michael ( djM.K). Now at this point I have been waiting at the bar for about 5 mins and still no drink , i ask M.K who is the guest dj tonight ,DEKO-ZE he replies, I tell M.K that I have heard of him before but never seen him in action. M.K points to the end of the bar and says "there he is go introduce yourself ,Say Hi " ok I guess so. As I make my way down to the end of the bar I notice that Deko-ze is by his self , so I start up a conversation with Deko-ze by introducing myself to him. Deko-ze is a very humbled individual, very soft in speech and as I keep talking his ear off (I dont really remember what i was saying but I prob told him that i was a dj ), Deko-ze asked me for the time I told him it was 1:50 , "Oh sorry Angelo but I need to get ready enjoy the rest of your night and great talking to ya" says Deko-ze. Time Check ****2 O'Clock**** everyone starts to cheer Deko-ze,Deko-ze,Deko-ze,Deko-ze ,and Bammmmmmmmmm ,he starts his set with a banging intro , followed with one of my most favourite tracks (A bit patchy by Switch),as soon as the bass kicks in Deko-ze's face lights up with the biggest smile and starts jumping up and down like a mad man , moving his little bald head back and forth (YES THE FAMOUS DEKO-ZE HEAD BOB). The break down in the track starts up ,followed by one of the most twisted basslines ,at this point the whole fucking room is going off. Tune after Tune Deko-ze just kept smashing into our faces we were all his puppets that night possessed by his music, my legs just wouldn't let me stop.Time check (OMG 5AM AND IM STILL FUCKING DANCING ) Deko-ze drops his last track of the Morning **** A LOVE BIZARRE BY SO PHAT****. One of funnest nights I have ever had .
Deko-ze is known all over the world for his Famous dj sets , he takes you on a journey and is one of the only djs that still likes to drop those old school tracks that bring you back. Deko-ze is a very busy man from traveling all over the country djing ,producing(NEED YOUR LOVE -ONE OF MY FAVS) or mixing Canada's Finest House compilations he is in my mind one of the most creative and exciting djs that you will ever see.

there is no questioning that Robb G is a man who
truly loves what he does. Known for his speedy

dozen labels in the last decade. Remixing DJ Dan,
Lazy Rich, Will Bailey, Hatiras and many more along
the way. His 12 Inch Therapy single received
tremendous acclaim, making its way to the top of
URB, iDJ, and Mixmag's Best Of 2008 lists. It hit the
number 12 spot on the UK buzz charts and became
the number 1 most requested song on Sirius Radio's

surprise that the Plump DJs named him alongside
Justice and Switch when asked who the most
exciting producers are.

On Oct 10th thanksgiving weekend Pauly D was invited to play the Hamilton Convention Center. The Event has been in the works for at least 3 months that I have known about. Every where I looked from mohawk college to hess village downtown Hamilton this was a very well promoted show. I did not attend the show because of you know THANKSGIVING but a couple of my boys where djing, Jordan Vesh and Buckeye Red. I kept getting messages on my facebook acoount about this event I even turned on the radio and heard it being promoted on Z103.5 with dj danny d. But I awoke this morning in utter discomfort reading about how disrespectful Mr Pauly d was to Hamilton Fans.
His Fans paid up to $61 for vip passes to meet Mr Pauly D but never gt to meet him since the jack ass shows up around 130am and was supposed to be there around 11 pm. Acording to the article that I read Mr Pauly d then talked to the promoter asking for an additional 20,000 25000+20000=45000 . JEsus thats a shit load of money and he only stayed for 40 mins.
NOW LADIES AND GENTS THERE ARE 2 SIDE TO EVERY STORY READ MY COMMENTS BELOW
Below I posted a link for the facebook group and hamilton spec
