DJ Shagz has been spinning wax since 1995, turning what started out as a hobby into a career of solid shows and high-profile gigs.

Shagz has performed in a number of locations across Canada, opening for a variety of artists such as The Crystal Method, Uberzone, David Usher, My Brilliant Beast, Methodology and Audio Playground High & Wide, as well as playing at industry events like the Toronto International Film Festival and the Reel Asian Film Festival. Shagz was also a semi-finalist in the premier North by North East DJ Competition held in Toronto, a guest dj on Focus – an internet radio show hosted at www.Beats.to - and has played sets at many Toronto night spots such as the Kool Haus, the Docks, Revival, The El Mocambo, NASA Dance Pub (where he held a monthly residency), Labrynth, the Blue Moon and Area 51.

Shagz spins a varied mix of breaks and house, criss-crossing moods from funky to techy, deep 'n soulful to full-on bangers. However, Shagz's personal musical tastes are quite varied, allowing him to tailor most of his sets to any crowd. Whether it's old school hip hop, vintage funk, blunted down tempo or the occasional drum and bass, he can probably pull it out of his crates, making each set a unique experience.

DJ Shagz can be found spinning around the Toronto area at various locations. Visit <a href="http://www.djshagz.com" target="_blank">www.djshagz.com</a> for the latest on upcoming gigs, as well as listen to dj sets and internet broadcasts.

Before purchasing a copy of this disc, check the last track on the disc if possible before making your purchase. A number of copies that I've had of this disc get really skippy about half way through the last track.

Sweet, sweet, sweet album. Space Ace produced a number of quality tracks on this disc, swinging through the Trip Hop, Big Beat and D 'n B genres, all brilliant. You'll probably have problems finding this album as it was an indie release on a Canadian ... See full review

One of the biggest records (in my opinion) to come off of the Fused and Bruised label, the Elite Force mix is an *essential* choon, an instant classic with it's ruff 'n tuff breaks and bass, instantly recognizable vocal sample and the acid squelch ... See full review

Solid start to the series, stand out tracks for me were Flywhee's "Slowdown" and Theivery Corp's "Lebanese Blond". However, in my opinion, the follow up albums are a lot better then this one. Hi Fi Lounge 2 and 3 features more tracks that stick in your ... See full review
