biography Renowned as one of Canada's most versatile and talented DJ’s, DJ Whitegold has been rocking crowds of all ages across the globe for over a decade. Possessing a rare combination of a stage presence and musicality, Whitegold has become one of Canada's most respected, most demanded DJ’s. Born and raised in Kitchener, a diverse and multi-cultural city just east of Toronto, Canada, Whitegold grew up exposed to a wide variety of music including Hip Hop, R&B, Reggae, Soca, Pop, Rock, House and Electro. His passion for all genres quickly catapulted him into position as one of the country’s most popular DJs. With the resurgence of house, electro & top 40 in the clubs, Whitegold was able to establish a reputation of excellence in not only the urban scene, but in these markets as well. Always ahead of the technology curve, Whitegold was one of the first Canadian DJs to introduce video-mixing into his repertoire – pioneering the genre with a collection of some of the hottest, and most rare, music videos in his arsenal.
