About

 

DeeJay Xplisit, a 27-year-old native of Toronto has established himself as not only a DJ, but also an artist. From his inception as a beatbox artist, and moving forward to mastering the craft of DJing, Xplisit has done a lot with music. Toronto, a city that is notorious for its diversity and multiculturalism, has allowed for his passion to expand to all forms and genres of music. “Experiencing diversity allows you to expand your mind, because if you’re limited to a few types of music, it limits how much you can learn.” – DJ Xplisit

From an early age, DJ Xplisit was heavily influenced by music. From composition to making sounds, he was infatuated by every genre he could take in. DJ Xplisit used what little knowledge he had about music itself, and focused on the art known as beat boxing. He began to show more and more interest in not only listening to music, but in being able to play and manipulate it. With the support and help of family and friends, Xplisit bought his turntables, and mixer and has never looked back. DJ Xplisit wanted to pursue DJing from a formal standpoint.  Knowing that he would need to educate himself formally if he wanted to DJ professionally, he learned the art of DJing from a few of the top DJs in the country, including the likes of: Baba Kahn (Canada’s Most Celebrated Club DJ), DJ Starting From Scratch (Usher, Russell Peters DJ, George Lopez Show), DJ Grouch (Turnstylez Crew, Melanie Durrant, Maestro Fresh Wes), and DJ Jr Flo (Keys N Krates, ITF & DMC Champion). He now teaches as an instructor at Scratch Lab DJ Institute in Toronto.

DJ Xplisit constantly strives to improve himself as an artist. A very hardworking, dedicated artist, Xplisit proves why he earns respect after each set. “I’m constantly digging in the Crates (DITC), to incorporate new music, and manipulate it! I’m not looking to be the guy who can simply blend music; I’m looking to be the guy who cuts..blends..mixes..chops..and re-invents himself every time! If you reach new boundaries, and constantly develop your skill, your product is a MUST HAVE! The turntable is my instrument..”

In addition to his solo career, DJ Xplisit has played with artists, and has pursued being a Tour DJ. Xplisit is constantly working as an artist to deliver his never before seen product of combining both DJing and beat boxing. He is making sets of both which he continues to astonish crowds with, as he tours internationally. “I love to do both, and am continuing to be the DJ that people know who can rock a crowd with more than just his hands..” – DJ Xplisit. This young DJ/ BEATBOXER/ ARTIST/ ENTREPENEUR continues to share his love and passion for music worldwide.
