The Best Vibe

Growing up in Montreal during the 70’s and the 80’s, Gene was influenced by a lot of sounds from his environment .
Being surrounded by music all the time gave him the urge to learn to play an instrument. In 1978, Gene discovered DJing and started playing high school dances and The Skadium roller rink, at the age of 13.

From 1982 to 1987, he played at various dance clubs all over Montreal . Relocating to Toronto in 1987, Gene played at smaller clubs and special events, until working steady gigs, doing parties for local promoters & working bigger clubs to this day.
