From the age of 18 he attended all the big name parties and this had the biggest influence on his life at the time. Seeing any and every big name coming to the city awoke an aspiration for becoming a DJ and producer.
After a few years and becoming more experienced with DJing, coupled with the electro house music scene inflating in the Toronto scene, he started to cross over into playing electro house sets while keeping his trance roots. He discovering DJ’s such as STEVE ANGELLO, MARK KNIGHT, DEADMAU5, BENNY BENASSI, DIRTY SOUTH, FEDDE LE GRAND, ERIC PRYDZ, and the list goes on.
As time progressed, the sound of electro house music had started to change, and he then stumbled upon the minimal-techno-tech house sounds, and this induced yet another transition point in musical tastes, finally finding his niche with the scene, this is where Darouge would reside.
Listening to music and live performances from the likes of RICHIE HAWTIN, STEVE LAWLER, MARCO CAROLA, DAVIDE SQUILLACE, NIC FANCIULLI, LOCO DICE, JOHN DIGWEED, SASHA, DARIUS SYROSSIAN, a new love and respect came out of the style and ways of how music was played, produced, and manipulated. This ultimately lead to how Darouge wanted to approach playing and manipulating the sound he had fell in love with.
Now focusing on production we hope to see more from Darouge in the near future.
