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 ten years perfecting his craft and honing his skills – mixing, cutting, and blending a range of different styles while keeping heads nodding and bodies moving.
Having been involved in countless residencies, opened for a virtual who’s who list of talent (including such artists as Q-Bert, Z-Trip, Mix Master Mike, Bassnectar, and the Stanton Warriors), 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 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.
Nowadays, DJ Soo is keeping himself busy: playing a wide assortment of gigs, touring, creating a steady flow of acclaimed mixtapes, co-hosting the weekly Notes From the Underground radio show, throwing parties with the Super Happy Dance Deejay crew, or performing one of their legendary 4-turntable sets with longtime collaborator DJ Wood.
In addition, Soo has been sequestering himself into the studio to produce more original productions and remixes – much of which have been receiving support from DJs around the world.
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.
Whether at a club, lounge, rave, or house party, having Soo behind the decks is a guarantee for a rump-shakingly good time.
