Type-Z.E.R.O. started back in 2003, when as a progressive DJ, the appeal of the harder sounds started to pull him away from what he had been producing and spinning for years. Type-Z.E.R.O. started out as a hard acid trance production alias. As the years went by, he found that the harder sounds kept on pulling him deeper and deeper into the the genre. Eventually the Progressive Trance sound fell completely and Type-Z.E.R.O. was the only focus…A DJ career dating back to 2001, and production dating back to 1997, Type-Z.E.R.O. Has been at this game for a while. Originally taking root in progressive and techno, his sound has evolved across almost every genre of trance and now settling in on Hardstyle. Obsess with the genre, Type-Z.E.R.O. has dedicated himself to Type-ZERO perfecting his mixing techniques and playing some of the most uplifting and driving melodies combined with the hardest and dirtiest drum beats around. After an almost 4 year hiatus, Type-Z.E.R.O. returned with a vengeance in 2010… with a new sound and a new company, Type-Z.E.R.O.’s Overdrive Canada has been ripping it up, and destroying dance floors. Leading the way for hard dance and Hardstyle in Canada, Type-Z.E.R.O. has become a driving force. His sets are always super high energy and raw. His trademark tempo changes and style changes ranging from hardest slow tempo kick drum break downs, into the funkiest of electro grooves and all the way into hardcore and gabber. Nothing is off limits, and nothing is to far fetched. Combined with an unparalleled energy behind the decks, Type-Z.E.R.O. brings a whole new experience to hard dance lovers. Continuously gigging, always practising and ever refining his sound, Type-Z.E.R.O. has had the pleasure to be showcased on several mix compilations. He has also won “Most requested DJ” and also claiming the title of “Best DJ in Ottawa in 2011”. A title he kept in the 2012, taking it by storm.
