Deko-ze is the co-owner of Jungle Funk Recordings with Jerome Robins and has tracks and remixes out on Hotfingers, Milk & Sugar, Deported, Pacha, KULT, Housesession, Vamos, Coraza, Attractive, Natura Viva and more! Jungle Funk was ranked #28 in Beatport Top Selling House Labels of 2014 and its sister label Jungle Tech Recordings was launched in 2015.
Deko-ze has been dubbed 'Canada's Hardest Working DJ', has been setting the standard in Canada for over 20 years and is resident DJ at Canada's top nightclubs and event promoters including Guvernment, Nest, Prism, Comfort Zone, Coda and Fly. He has also burned up the decks in the US, Mexico, UK, Germany and Taiwan and also wears the promoter, radio show host & producer, promo pool reporter, magazine columnist and record store music purchaser hats.
Zoi (CA) was born in Karachi, Pakistan and helped cultivate his local electronic music scene by creating safe spaces for Pakistani revellers to experience techno and house music. He eventually moved to Toronto, Canada, where he pursued technical training in sound while developing a knack for music production.
As a producer, Zoi focuses on creating complex soundscapes and deep melodies; all characterized by ethereal twilight overtones. Equal parts musician, and equal parts sound engineer, Zoi endeavours to capture ethereal and moody sounds that aim to embody the complexities of human experience.
On the club floor however, Zoi's music is a different beast. Combining insightful elements from his melodies with an engrossing wave of floor-filler mid-level tones; Zoi hits that sweet spot for letting go, and looking within.
Zoi launched his music career as one-half of Talal & Zoi (T&Z), a duo that gained traction in the electronic scene with releases featured on Dirtybird, Kindisch, Traum, Rawthentic Music and Moodfamily. Releasing on Claude Von Stroke’s label, dirtybird, for their 5th year anniversary has been a highlight in Zoi’s career and gained lots of traction from various magazines and platforms like Resident Advisor. His music has also been played and supported by artists like Bedouin, Blondish, Carlo Lio, Claude Von Stroke, Oona Dahl and Stavroz.
The Pakistani born DJ has performed worldwide with names such as KaterBlau, (Berlin, DE), Keizerpark Open Air (Ghent, BE), Bushwick's Bogart House (Brooklyn, NY) and Electric Island (Toronto, CA) under his belt.
Beyond his productions, Zoi invests himself in nurturing Toronto's music scene through his newly founded collective "Untold Stories". A project that has hosted artists such as Kamaal Williams/Henry Wu, Glenn Astro, Maribou State, Nabihah Iqbal and Dauwd. Most recently Zoi has been working closely with Traum Schallplatten, and has a busy roster of events and releases planned for 2020.
