“The Vancouver Island DJ Master Champion Award is about recognizing and embracing the Canadian Pop Culture of Electronic Dance Music performances and party’s. The Vancouver Island Underground scene of Electronic Dance Music has been around for around 25 years and is about sharing friendship to your community. This is a scene that I have embraced as the way of Canadian life since returning to Canada. I first became a DJ in this scene in Canada in 1998” -DJ Slick Panther
