Locals Love

This is Brent from WLP's Top 10 locals of all time list. Check the event listing for the Genesis of this list.



10. Mark Scaife

9. Ramy vs. David

8. Matt C

7. Peter & Tyrone

6. Deko-Ze

5. Addy

Addy not only played a sound that become known to be “his own” for many years, it became a sound that was known as “Toronto’s own”..

His sets at Zone were some of the most talked about in the city. He has reinvented himself throughout the years. I have a feeling more reinventions are to come in the form of production as well.

4. Manzone & Strong

Joe and Fab have had one of the most successful runs in Toronto as 2 of the go to staples of our underground fabric for 20 years. They have played as residents in every major venue our city has built. From watching Manzone Rip euro classics at such venues as LA Hollywood & Palazzo, to Club 108 on Thursdays live on Energy 108, this is where I first was put on notice.

From there it was Meow, Fluid, and The Drink that was home to 2 guys the helped mould and shape what I was playing at the time. Versatility has been the key that has kept these 2 in the Toronto spotlight for so many years.

3. Carlo Lio

Carlo started as a TO local, which is why he’s on this list! Every show you went to Carlo had fans and friends screaming in unison, and all for good reason. From humble beginnings to humble successes, nothing changed him.

Musically he had that ear and was able to carve out a sound that propelled him into his productions and eventually his label. One word describes Carlo in his rise to current times…PASSION. He beams this in his sets and in his music…

2. Nathan Barato

Every time I hear Nathan, it’s an experience that changes and gets better. The mark of a DJ’s DJ. Not only does he have a “sound” all to his own, it’s a sound that continues to be polished into something very special.

Every DJ I speak to that plays one of his tracks all says the same thing “Barato is delivering HARD with the goods” It’s safe to say that these trends are going to continue, and in doing so, the sky’s the limit for one of the nicest guys in the business

1. Mark Oliver

Partying in the Guverment main room from the late 90’s and early 2000’s, was responsible for my growth as DJ. I spent so many Saturday nights immersed in Mark Oliver’s musical vortex that it was impossible not to be influenced. He catered to all sounds, and to this day, I think it’s safe to say there are countless DJ’s who feel the same way. Mark is a pillar of the Toronto scene Oliver introduced Acid House to our city, he played records no one else had. Often times people would come for Mark over whomever was playing because he would keep the energy going hours after the headliner got off. So many timeless classics were heard for the first time played by him.

The fact that he is still going after all these years shows that his longevity is a direct correlation to his skills. I’ll put it to you like this…if there was a DJ Hall of Fame for Toronto talent, Mark Oliver would be a first ballot inductee.
